Sideshow Collectibles started taking pre-orders for imports of the Medicom VSD (Vinyl Super Deformed) Darth Vader and Stormtrooper figures they showed at Toy Fair last week.

Each figure is $59.99, limit two per person.

Some details from Sideshow:

The Stormtrooper stands roughly 10-inches tall, and the stylized caricature sculpture perfectly captures trooper's most iconic features, and inspires some personality. The figure is highly poseable, and includes his blaster.

Darth Vader stands roughly 10-inches tall, and the stylized caricature sculpture captures Vader's most iconic features. The figure is highly poseable, and includes his lightsaber, removable outer helmet, and fabric cape with real chain clasp.

Medicom Toy Corporation has designed and produced one of the most unique Star Wars collectible lines, the vinyl super-deformed series. These high quality figures were previously available only in Japan, and only in extremely limited quantities.

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
