From over priced comic series to the discount sticker.

Easy pass. WTF are Hasbro thinking making a comic character that was in 2-3 book panels at most!

You're asking the same company who's released like 8 Landos figures in both their lines in about 2 years time?
Two of the most baffling things Hasbro has done in recent memory imo:
1-skiff Lando in archive wave when he’s he’s still available for less than retail
2-that HIDEOUS VC young Lando they announced today 🤦‍♂️. Let’s take a notorious peg warmer and make the ugliest possible version we can

Yup. They really don't like making money.

It's just so blatantly nothing more than a cash grab simple repaint. Pssstt Hey Hasbro ever heard of Shadows of the Empire. How about maybe some Ralph McQuarrie black series edition Star Wars figures! If not, how about you know, make at least something all new instead of 90% reissue's and rehash's!

As a huge Darth Vader fan, I have always found this version well..Stupid looking. When he swayed from the Dark Side he would keep the look that instilled Fear and reinforced tyranny but make it white to present himself as less threatening? Not buying it. Nor Buying the figure. But some gift giver will see I dont have it and buy it for me. 🤪

I suppose it's *kind* of cool looking, in some random regard.
But again, it's an easy pass when money and shelf space are factored in.

New sculpts would be cool, the problem is this is just another repaint line for Hasbro. But even taking that into account, there are so many other figures that would sell more than this lame duck.

Dr Aphra is a hard to find figure today and has a current ongoing comic book.
Jaina Solo again is a hard to find figure and has a ton of EU books behind her.
HK-47, a new head on that Rebel Security droid would be an easy kitbash.
A proper Black Krrsantan made from the savings of the other 3 figures being already sculpted!

I think I fall into the very small group who does like this look on Vader. Always wanted the comic pack 3&3/4 version. That said...I'm passing on this until it hits a generous sale price or clearance.

I'm surprised how many people don't seem to like this.

Yeah, it is a little weird to see Vader in white, still though I think that it is a cool concept.

Between this, Shae Viszla, the Mando Super Commando, and Sargent Kreel this is turning out to be a good, if expensive, day.

Considering that Vader figures ALWAYS sell, it'll be interesting to see how this one performs.

If the inventory numbers in the HasbroPulse page code are to be trusted… 4,153 of their 7,500 initial allotment have sold. So 55%. That’s just the Pulse site of course and doesn’t take any other sites into account.

I just thought of something. In the Infinities comic we never see the redeemed Vader wielding a lightsaber, but if he changed his armor to white to symbolize his redemption, shouldn't he go back to using a lightsaber with a blue blade instead of red? 🤔

Haven't they made some explanation about lightsabers that once they've been bled red, they go white after purging the dark side?
I think Ahsoka's white lightsabers used to belong to a Sith/darksider.
