Not too exciting but it's definitely new and forthcoming. The images are starting to emerge from the biggest geekfest of the year as SuperHeroHype.com posts a shot directly from Hasbro's booth of the upcoming ToysRUs exclusive Death Star Trench Run Ultimate Battle Pack featuring Luke Skywalker's X-wing Fighter and Darth Vader's TIE Fighter with their associated action figures.
The Vader Project has been nominated in the category of Most Influential Event by the Designer Toy Awards. You can register and vote now by clicking here! Curated and produced by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys (www.dketoys.com), The Vader Project features 100 of the best underground artists and designers working today. For this unique project, each artist customized a 1:1 scale authentic prop replica of the actual Darth Vader helmet featured in the STAR WARS™ films.
Ah, the tale of two Vaders, also known as Vader's aplenty for the holiday pegs. First releasing the removable helmet figure from 2008's The Legacy Collection (BD08), Hasbro run changes it for the more ESB appropriate version from 2006's The Saga Collection. Both versions are readily available on the pegs along with the newly released The Vintage Collection figure.
The "guts" of this sculpt was from the Sith Evolutions figure from 2005, which Hasbro retooled along with a new headsculpt for The 30th Anniversary Collection in 2008. Now that The Vintage Collection figure is considered the frontrunner, this SL version, with its limited arm articulation but not too bad a head sculpt, is relegated to secondary Battle Pack filler status. You know, for the kids.
Gentle Giant has a lot planned for Comic-Con featuring plenty of the expected activity in their booth and a couple of nostalgic/vintage awesome Star Wars exclusives!
