This Darth Vader action figure was released in
2002 in the Star Wars SAGA series.
Hasbro gave the figure nine joints and included
three accessories (red lightsaber, plastic cape, 2-piece bespin railing).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Sith:
- Darth Vader (Bespin Duel) was released individually carded
- Hasbro included a 2-piece Bespin skyway railing which looks great
- Vader's plastic cape is removable
- The figure can be balanced out OK without help from a stand
- On the back of the figure is a button, which when pressed moves the upper body left and right for some "slashing lightsaber attack"
- The red lightsaber, which has a non-removable blade, fits well into the right hand
- The left hand has a magnet in it, which can be used to "Force attract" the lightsaber
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, left swivel upper arm, 2 swivel forearms, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs
The evil and much feared military commander, Darth Vader 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.
