Chrome Vader in the Summer sets?

Postby Firespray » Thu Feb 19, 2009 10:39 am

Just curious if the Chrome Vaders will be inserted into the upcoming Summer sets too or if it's only in the current 2009 sets?

I don't know for a fact, but we use the C-3P0's as an example then the vader's will be inserted progressively though the whole year. so at this point probably only about a fourth of them are out there.

Hmm sounds like they probably will be inserted into the upcoming sets at some point this year if not all of them have been inserted yet.

how is this thread allowed but a direct question about if and how the Chrome Vader will be released in Europe was not ?

Note : I'd still like to know about the European release ... if there is one.

Easy, Steve got here before I did. ;) And to be fair, Steve only had a guess for this answer as it is. But maybe he'll spot that thread and have some insight for you guys. He has the power to post in locked threads here you know.

@Don - remember that when I guess its usually based on something solid. the way they distributed the 3P0's was very methodical and planned out because it had to be for it to work. Why would they come up with a completely different plan for something with the exact same concept? So yes I "guess" they would do the same thing, but at the same time I'd put money on it that this is what they're doing again.

@Bigospredos - sorry I don't always make it to the whole forum all the time, I try to at least keep decently up with this one since it's very focused. I have lots to do other than reading forums unfortunately :(

I wasn't having a go Steve ... although I'm still looking for an answer on Europe availability though? ;)

Well, unless its developing and refining new sets, it can wait. :D

The beauty of a LEGO MOC is not the elements that go into it, but the way those elements are put together.

I'm sorry if this has been addresses elsewhere (if it has, please set me straight)... What sets could contain the chrome Vader? I was hoping to have a chance at getting one. Thanks!

Supposedly minus the Battle Packs, but have heard reports of them being in there.

I don't know why I dropped back here again lately. LEGO can no longer hold my interest, and I'm almost certainly gone forever. Bye to all who remember me.

The newest Lego magazine just says they're available in "2009 Star Wars sets" but I would assume the bigger the set, the better chance it has.

Well, I bought the Republic Attack Shuttle, the biggest 2009 SW set so far, and no chromey vader. Not that I ever expected there to be one. :D In fact, I totally forgot about the chromey vader thing when I bought the set. i just wanted the darn shuttle cuz it looked so nice. It wasn't until a day later when I realized that I had failed to get chrome vader in my box.
