  • Darth Vader was released individually carded
  • The figure is very scene specific and is based on the "Dinner Scene" on Bespin
  • Vader's outer soft-goods robe is removable
  • The blaster attaches nicely to the right hand in just about the correct angle the way Vader caught Han Solo's blaster (nice!)
  • There is no magnet in the hand - so the blaster needs to be placed into the hand well
  • The right hand can be exchanged with an extra right hand
  • The extra right hand has a hole in it - where the blast effect can be plugged in - which works well
  • Han Solo's blaster is nicely sculpted and painted (it even has a brown/wodden grip!)
  • The figure can hold the lightsaber only in the left hand
  • The chest armor is glued in place in the front - but it can be unplugged in the back (this way the inner soft-goods robe can be pulled off the figure - which doesn't make much sense)
  • Darth Vader has no balancing issues and displays beautifully without needing help from a display stand


The Evil Sith Lord Darth Vader captures the rebel heroes when they arrive at Bespin's Cloud City.
