Frontpaged news by Ras:

Was at my local toyshop today.

Me and CM pre-ordered the 8017 Darth Vader's TIE Fighter.

It came already on Saturday, but I couldn\'t go get it because I spent the weekend in Bonn (Germany) :pir-wub:

Guess if the surprise was BIG when I found out that you get an extra Darth Vader.

Even more so when it was Chrome-Black!!

The attachments aren't working for me. So is this a random special, like the chrome C-3POs? Or do you think it comes in every set? Pictures, please!

Ooh, polybagged on it's own? So it doesn't come INSIDE the set box, but as a promo for pre-ordering?

Wow, that is beautiful! Just a question, do you know if this is some special promotion, or will the chrome vader be released with all copies of this set? Also, where did you get Vader's TIE and how much was it?

Polybagged on it's own, but it sounds like it was inside the box.

It came on the side. Not in box!

It is a special edition.

Will probably more then the chrome C3-PO´s.

But as I said, run to your local stores, call the once that is to far.

Try everything you can. They are out there.

I mean if we in puny Sweden got 1000, how many more is there out there??

Don´t be so negative yet my friend.

I guess they just spinned a globe and pointed :wink:

After pointing to water 2 times, and thinking of redoing it when they hit Sweden for the release, they decided to go so anyway for a pre-release.

I´m sure it will hit many other countrys as well.

So hang in there guys and gals!!

That's a stunning minifig, and I'm sure it looks even better in person! :wub:

Did you get it because of the pre-order? I've never actually heard of pre-ordering LEGO sets...

I do hope that it will be easy enough to find here in the U.S., but if not it's not a big deal, just a minifig after all, albeit a beautiful chrome-black one. :grin:

I'm not sure if I'm getting it right... so in the set itself there is 'plane-black' Vader, and 'chrome-black' Vader is an extra polybag on it's own added as a promotional stuff ???

In Sweden they got a 1000 of these chrome black Darth Vaders as "give-aways" when people bought the 8017 Vader's Tie.

It's an anniversary PR stunt.

Buy one and get the special Darth for free.
