As Hasbro promised, the name tab, cardback, and POP for VC13, formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, is now appropriately called Darth Vader per his transformation and appearance in Mustafar. Of course, you now have two The Vintage Collection "Darth Vaders" on the pegs, the other being VC08, but that shouldn't confuse anyone, right?
Hasbro corrected the paint error on VC15 Clone Trooper's helmet with the appropriate line around the cap. This particular sample was found at a Target store in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Ah, the tale of two Vaders, also known as Vader's aplenty for the holiday pegs.

Both versions are readily available on the pegs along with the newly released The Vintage Collection figure.
Courtesy of an astute member of the Rebelscum forums, scans of the latest issue of ToyFare magazine previews the upcoming The Vintage Collection action figures of Barris Offee, Bom Vidin, Weequay, and a brand spankin new upgraded Rebel Fleet Trooper!
