- This Darth Vader "Sith Lord" action figure was released in a 4-pack titled "The Evolution Of Darth Vader"
- The other three figures in this set were Anakin Skywalker "Young Padawan", Anakin Skywalker "Jedi Apprentice" and Anakin Skywalker "Jedi Hero"
- This version of Darth Vader is a slight re-work of the Darth Vader figure from The Vintage Collection
- The only difference is in the datestamp, which has moved from the feet (on the 2010 Darth Vader) to the inside of the shin guards
- There are no visible paint or sculpt differences between the 2010 and the 2013 released figures
- Based on the head sculpt, which shows an older Darth Vader, this figure would fall under the "Empire Strikes Back" or "Return Of The Jedi" category (not Revenge Of The Sith like shown on the packaging)
- The 3-piece helmet fits remarkably well and closes the gap between the collar and the face mask pretty well
- The dome however sits only very loosely on top, and it's likely to fall off once the figure's head is turned
- The soft-goods robe is overly bulky
- Darth Vader can only hold the lightsaber in the left hand
- Overall, this Darth Vader action figure looks great on display, but it's an easy pass if you already own The Legacy Collection Darth Vader from 2008 or The Vintage Collection Darth Vader from 2010
