This Darth Vader action figure was released in
2013 in the Saga Legends Series.
It was exclusively available at Target.
Hasbro gave the figure nine joints and included
two accessories (operating table, plastic robe).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Sith:
- Darth Vader was released in The Rise Of Darth Vader 4-pack
- The other figures in this set were Emperor Palpatine, a Shock Trooper and the Chopper Droid (Medical Droid)
- Vader is a straight re-release of the Movie Heroes MH20 Darth Vader figure from 2012
- Included in this set was Darth Vader's operating table, an accessory which has been released twice before (once in 2010 in the Birth Of Darth Vader battle pack, and once in 2005's Re-build Darth Vader Deluxe set)
- The figure fits overall quite well onto the table, even though the permanently attached lightsaber gets in the way a bit
- Darth Vader's permanently attached light-up lightsaber can be activated by pressing the belt buckle
- The saber lights up brightly and looks cool
- Unfortunately, it's not possible to keep the lightsaber lit permanently
- Because of the electronics, the right arm and the waist are not articulated
- The right forearm and the lightsaber hilt are also much, much bigger compared to a regular figure
- There is no option to change the battery, so if you buy this figure on the secondary market, make sure to ask if the lightup lightsaber still works
- Vader's plastic cape is removable and fits well
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel shoulders, ball-jointed left elbow, swivel left forearm, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees
