    Any progress on this? I hunger for a chocolate melted Vader!

    Also this would be an awesome cosplay. Whenever someone wants a picture, just lay on the ground.

    Awesome sculpt. Look forward to seeing the final product.
    One question though, in the trailer, all we see is the front, how do you plan on doing the details for the back?

    Loving it! U putting any twisted venting in there?
    Do we see skull fragments inside perhaps? It's exciting.
    What materials might u be offering casts in?
