This Darth Vader action figure was released in
2007 in The Anniversary Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure 14 points of articulation and included
three accessories (red lightsaber, coin, ben kenobi base).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Sith:
- This Darth Vader was released individually carded
Hasbro branded the figure as "A New Hope" on the packaging and included a great looking base
The base is Ben Kenobi's cape, with his lightsaber molded on top of it
The top part of Darth Vader's helmet is removable, which when removed reveals a young Anakin Skywalker
The soft-goods outer cape is not removable
Darth Vader stands well without help from a stand
The red lightsaber fits well into both hands
The figure looks overall great, but Hasbro should have used a much older looking Anakin head instead
Even though the figure came straight out of the packaging for this review, the head had same paint smudges and scratches on it
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, 2 swivel forearms, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees, 2 ball-jointed ankles
Darth Vader has waited many years to confront his former master. But Obi-Wan has one last lesson for his former Padawan, the Force transcends time and space. As Vader witnesses Obi-Wan become one with the Force, his victory is bittersweet, for he is deprived of the satisfaction of seeing Kenobi's lifeless body at his feet!
