  • This Darth Vader figure is based on Vader's appearance in the original Star Wars
  • Vader's lightsaber fits well into both hands
  • Unfortunately - there was no non-ignited lightsaber hilt included - and there is no hole on the figure where a hilt could be plugged in and hung from
  • Hasbro has been changing the scale of the 3'75 inch figures over the last year - and so this version of Vader is a bit taller and thinner than previous releases (this is not a bad thing - but noticeable)
  • Aesthetically - this version of Vader looks fantastic with well hidden joints and a removable soft-goods cape that fits well on the figure - even the cod piece is slightly off center - which is brilliant!
  • The figure has no balancing issues - even more dynamic poses are possible without a stand
  • The only improvements we'd like to see for future versions of the "ANH Vader" is a helmet with a smaller chin vent (the one on this figure is clearly from ESB/ROTJ) and red painted lenses instead of grey/silver (we know this is not a statue - but we've seen smaller details on other figures which Hasbro got right)
  • All in all - this version of Darth Vader can easily be recommended and shouldn't miss from any collection!
