This Darth Vader action figure was released in
2012 in the Movie Heroes toy line.
Hasbro gave the figure nine joints and included
two accessories (red lightsaber, plastic sith robe).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Sith:
- This Darth Vader is a re-release and re-work of the Star Wars SAGA Darth Vader (Bespin Duel) figure from the year 2002
- The figure now comes with a slightly re-tooled left hand, which doesn't have a magnet in it
- Vader has a button on the back, which when pressed, moves the upper body back and forth (Slashing Lightsaber Attack!)
- The lightsaber fits well into the right hand
- The figure stands quite well without a stand
- The plastic robe comes off very easily (and needs to be removed if you want to use the action feature)
- Aesthetically, this version of Vader looks nice, but it feels outdated with not a single ball-joint in the figure
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, left swivel upper arm, 2 swivel forearms, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs
Darth Vader is the evil and much-feared military leader of the Galactic Empire.
He seeks to bring young Luke Skywalker over to the dark side. As the two battle on a precarious outer walkway on Bespin,
Vader reveals a shocking secret that shatters Luke's world.
