This Darth Vader action figure was released in a comic 2-pack in 1996 together with Prince Xizor. The figure features 6 joints, a hard-plastic cape, and a red lightsaber. The wavy cape fits nicely around Vader's neck, and gives him a more dynamic pose. The lightsaber fits nicely into either hand. The figure has some balancing problems, but Kenner included peg holes in his feet so that he can be placed on a stand. If you position the cape right, it might help you balance him out a bit as well. Darth Vader's paint application is pretty basic overall, and the figure's physic reminds us more of He-Man from The Masters Of The Universe than Darth Vader. Compared with modern action figures, this Darth Vader feels pretty outdated, and there are definitely more detailed and more articulated versions of the Sith Lord on the market today. However, this figure is unique due to the pre-positioned legs and the wavy cape.
