ESB Vader VC08 Cardback Variations
« on: March 24, 2012, 09:44:21 AM »

Here's a look at a few of the variations on the Vader that has come out now in comparision that the one that came out with the first wave.

On the front the font size of the "Age/Edad/Idade 4+" is now smaller (just like all the figures after the first wave), and of course the Fett offer sticker is gone.


On the back there are quite a few slight changes to mention.


The text in the half-oval that come off the bottom right of the original carded vader now has all white text, the oval and the font size are larger, and the line 'Emballage original de Darth Vader' is now 'Carte originale de Darth Vader'.  The font size of the writing above the oval has been reduced to fit the larger oval so now the first english quote of 'Celebrate the legendary..." now fits in four lines instead of five.(noticable in previous photo)
1st issue:
2nd issue:


The writing that is on the left side of the picture of the original cardback is now a different font size and spacing.

2nd Issue:


Above and below the pictures of the other figures available the text has now changed.

2nd Issue:


The fan club logo no longer appears on the back and the hasbro logo and starwars.basbro.com logo have been moved and the upc code is now a different size.

Does anyone know if the "Revenge of the Jedi" version of the VC 08 Vader was released on Canadian card?

Thanks, I didn't think that I'd missed this one but wasn't sure.  Am I right that the R2 'Revenge' card has also not been released on Canadian card?  You say not released for the moment which seems to imply that you have hope that it(they) will still be released.  I'm not so sure about that myself, from what i've heard about Canadian waves at the moment I think it's going to be awhile (august) until we see the next wave and I don't think that those two revenge figures are included in the assortment. 

-epiv darth vader
-jar jar binks
-ep2 clone lieutenant
-ep3 clone trooper ( shock trooper)
-sandtrooper ( orange )
-princess leia ( bespin )

I could be proven wrong though, hopefully.

Here you go:


Revenge Vader was in US wave 9 with Echo Base Trooper,Ponda Baba,etc.In Canada,ESB Vader was instead of Revenge vader.Not sure why it change and I think it doesn't exist anymore.

Revenge cards & Return cards only found in wave 8 & 9.After that,you won't be find them in any future assorments :fett:

Thanks for the pic and confirmation.  I guess the R2 is the only one i missed out on. Typical that Canada gets the shaft again.  It would be one thing to get none of the Revenge cards up here, but to give us all but one?  Come on.  I know Hasbro is a large company and star wars figures are only one division, but there has to be a management position that oversees the line and should be able to prevent things like this from happening.  The fact that Canadians collect star wars figures is not news to Hasbro.  The now defunct Q&A sessions were proof and indication to our dedication to collecting.  It already ticks me off that we don't get to see full runs of collections, always missing out on the last few waves, but to offer us the Revenge variants and then exclude the Vader (arguably the most collectable character, sorry Fettheads) is just plain wrong.

Booooo Hasbro, boooooo. >:( :mad0137: :mad0177:

I was in a winners today and somehow managed to find the Revenge R2. :artoo:  It was the only vintage style figure they had left, they had some more of CW styled figures.  The icing was that it was clearance priced at $5.00 from $5.99.
