There is no homestead just the crawler from what i was told.
I plan on buying at least 3 Cantinas. Looks like I can build a Lars Family Homestead with the extra pieces.
It's odd how Aragorn (who does have an actual cloak) never got one in lego form. What? No love for the dulcet tones of Mr Data? ;oP
@y2josh I agree with you: I have all the Hasbro Clone versions (and most of the other figures too) up to last year and would have like to see both Hasbro and Lego continue with Clone Wars Figures and Sets with updated armor and change to 5s Tops etc..
It almost makes sense ;-)
This part is in that set.
And it doesn't fit with any of the other minifigs.
Edit: I just checked the instructions - he does.
It's yet more slight meddling to make the (false and horrible) prequels seem like they really do tie in naturally, and it doesn't really work. Still, I'll just leave his helmet on and it won't matter either way! :P
Speaking of which, wouldn't it be great if the new head had back printing for those scars? Probably doesn't, but still...
(Back scars would be insane!! *drools at the thought*) And conversely there's my reason for hating the CGI-bloated midichlorian-filled prequels, Jar-Jar aside! ;)
The head was discussed a while ago.
It has been shown as different colours in the original films, presumably down to lighting.
The colour is obviously a problem given it has to be an official lego colour. The markings, well, I find them quite accurate to the second picture above.
Frankly, what bothers me most about the new minifigure is the expression. It goes without saying that a stern expression like that is probably what Vader would have worn under the helmet for most of his appearances, but I think a more neutral expression might have been better in order to match the expression he wore the one time you actually see his face without the helmet. Like this post–RotS Vader, but with eyebrows, more accurate facial wrinkles and less of a deer-in-the-headlights look.
To be fair, though, it makes little sense to complain about the face this time when I never really cared about the expression on previous Vader figs. I suppose an angry/stern expression helps kids relate to him better as a "bad guy".
Are you thinking that the ventilator would be better as printed detail on the face, or as a dedicated new element? I wouldn't be too keen on the latter, but the former might definitely be neat for a future fig design, since that way he'd have the ventilator on right when you remove the helmet instead of having to remove the head to attach the ventilator. The disadvantage with that is that he'd be left with a band of skin on his neck and chin since the bottom part of the minifigure head couldn't be printed a solid color.
side note: I did like the way the Aquazone was used for battle damage, but I felt it is to big for the ventilator only.
