This Anakin Skywalker action figure was released in
1999 in the Power Of The Force 2 Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure six joints and included
two accessories (blue lightsaber, plastic jedi robe).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Jedi:
- Old Anakin Skywalker appeared in the original Return Of The Jedi as a spirit, never in his full Jedi Knight outfit
- Technically, this figure is an expanded universe figure
- The plastic jedi robe is removable, but the sleeves are painted onto the figure, so it looks strange when the robe is off
- The lightsaber fits well into both hands
- Anakin stands well without help from a stand
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs
As a youth, Anakin Skywalker was brought before the Jedi Council as a candidate for Jedi training. With some dissension, the Council voted to allow Anakin to become the apprentice of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and over time Anakin became a powerful Jedi. The Council's concerns, however, proved to be well founded. The dark side soon overwhelmed Anakin and changed him, creating Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith. Darth Vader faithfully served at Emperor Palpatine's side, leading the Imperial efforts to crush the Rebellion. He was even ready, if necessary, to take the life of his own son, Luke Skywalker. But in the final confrontation between father and son, Luke's pleas finally awakened the good buried deep within Darth Vader.
