#43 Black Series Darth Vader Deco Revision

It appears that the 40th Anniversary Darth Vader that is reissued for the standard Black Series release (#43) is more than just a simple repack. The paint operations on the helmet have been updated significantly in order to achieve an even better likeness to the screen-used helmet by adding more silver to the neck seal portion. This makes 3 unique decos for this sculpt (red eyes, dark eyes, and dark eyes/silver neck). Click the image above for a closer look.

Pre-Punched or Unpunched: Which One Do You Have?

Despite assurances that the 6″ 40th Anniversary figures would be pre-punched for retail sales, it seems like there is at least one figure that this claim didn’t necessarily apply. There are samples for the Star Wars Celebration exclusive Luke Skywalker: X-Wing Pilot figure that made it into hands of collectors with the punch intact. While this isn’t anything to covet for majority of collectors, there is a segment of the community that this will surely interest.

Thanks to trashtone for the info and for his aid in acquiring this sample.
