    Did you order from Amazon itself or the Marketplace? If it's the latter shoot the seller an email and ask about the delay..

    Altered my third 40th Vader into an ESB/ROTJ type of look:

    redid the entire inner cloak/skirt with new material, of course put the pec armor on the outside, and painted the eye lenses black.

    I went to a Walgreens I've never been to before today.. They had a row of 40th figures. One by one I pulled them off the shelve.. Everyone got more and more depressing..

    Here we sit in September and the distribution on this line was suspect at best (as it's been w/the non-movie tie-in waves of TBS of late). I saw the first wave exactly once, and never saw wave 2 at retail. I hadn't intended to buy the figures that I already had just because of the nifty packaging, but I wanted a Death Squad/Star Commander and a Jawa.

    Black Series Darth Vader Centerpiece

    Ok so for everyone who LOVED the Hasbro Unleashed series of figures, these are the upgrade for those. They are part unleashed figure, part Kotobukiya model with an electronic upgrade.

    There's room on the platform to have some 6" stormtroopers hanging around him, or Vader is just stomping his way through a ship. The blast mark and the orange strip under his feet light up.

    The figure is really cool - I have no idea where I'm going to display him though.

    I had a great time at Hascon. Everyone was extremely helpful. Sat in on the 40th anniversary panel getting the scoop on old stories and new products. Visited SW corner of convention the most talking with concept managers Steve Evans and Mark Boudreaux! Took a ton of pics. They had awesome displays of 6" figures on Tatooine/On Star destroyer etc, had new TLJ figures loose for us to hold and feel.

    Surprised to see exclusive figures still for sale...got 2 Rex's to sell. Wife bought a 3.75" TLJ Stormtrooper.
