12" Medicom RAH Darth Vader review
« on: December 05, 2005, 07:12:23 PM »

Alrighty I decided to start this review earlier since I have nothing to do at the moment so lets get it started. I bought this one from SWS at around 200 something USD DLVD with a Tshirt for my dad. when it came It arrived in a very large box.....twice the size of the RAH Luke. Now I haven't seen any other 12" Vaders made by big names so I can't really compare. The scuplt on this figure is great, very nice attention to details on thi helmet, head, armour, belt etc...Articulation on this 12" RAH is very limited due to the tight fitting "leather" outfit. The hands they give you allow you to recreate key scenes in the Original Trilogy but they come out of the socket real easy. The bottom of his cape has a fine wire in it so you can shape it the way you want it to look. The lightsaber is quite nice except it's a bit hard to fit onto his belt hook. As for problems with my specfic figure, they forgot to trim off some extra threads and there's a bit of white paint on his left boot overall  a great figure....the scale though is a bit off when you set him next to Luke. that's all for now, if you have questions about the figure, post em here and I'll try to get an answer for you....Stormtrooper review coming soon once it arrives (estimated next week)



now here are some pics for you guys to drool over

Awesom pics man! From what i'd heard, i thought the medicom figures were a little smaller than the hasbro 12 inch...nice to see that was BS. All the same i'm gonna hold off and see what sideshow's gonna come up with, tho the ROTS Medicom vader would be my pick. Are vader's eyes really greenish like that? i thought they were supposed to be blue.

What a beautiful looking figure!  I've ordered the ROTS version from a Japanese wholesaler in hopes I'd save a couple of bucks over buying the OT version from the US.

very nice....i'm still pondering if I should get it or not because I sorta don't want 2 Vaders stuck in the house but I mean the new sculpt looks nice....also the price is another factor but I'll see the next time I go to Hong Kong, I'm thinking of picking up the 12" Comic Spider man and the MGS 3 Snake (regular)
