This Darth Vader action figure was released in
2007 in The Anniversary Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure 14 points of articulation and included
five accessories (exchangable helmet, blue lightsaber, soft-goods cape, blaster, coin).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Sith:
- Darth Vader (McQuarrie Signature Series) was released individually carded
The figure is based on concept work done by Ralph McQuarrie
The figure came with two different helmets which can easily be swapped out
The blaster fits well into the holster and it fits OK into both hands
The soft-goods cape can be removed
The lightsaber fits very tightly into the right hand and loosely into the left
Vader stands nicely on his own without needing a stand
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 swivel elbows, 2 swivel wrists, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees, 2 ball-jointed ankles
The vivid imagination of conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie brought to life the characters and worlds envisioned by George Lucas. McQuarrie’s paintings and drawings were instrumental in the push to bring Lucas’s saga to the big screen, giving shape and form to a multitude of fantastic individuals, creatures, planets and technology encompassed in this epic tale. Developed in collaboration with McQuarrie himself, this remarkable action figure series pays tribute to the man whose art defined some of the most memorable characters in film history.
