Darth Vader (A New Hope) - Disney Elite Series Die Cast 2015

Darth Vader


  • This Elite Series Darth Vader was released at Disney Stores on November 23, 2015
  • The figure sold out quickly, but Disney re-released it again in the same packaging for the Force Awakens Blu-Ray release on April 5th, 2016
  • This version of Darth Vader was in circulation for several months before it disappeared from store shelves
  • Vader is a slight re-work of the previously D23 exclusive Disney Elite Series Darth Vader figure
  • For this release Disney added a peg hole in the bottom of the right foot, so that the figure can be placed onto the included display stand
  • Darth Vader came with a red lightsaber, which fits tightly into the figure's right hand
  • The helmet and the plastic cape are not removable
  • Vader was sculpted well, but the helmet appears to be based on the Revenge Of The Sith version, instead of the A New Hope helmet
  • The left hand is sculpted in a "force choke" position, which looks cool
  • Both wrists have swivel joints which allows for different lightsaber poses
  • Our review figure had stiff joints and kept the balance well


In collaboration with Lucasfilm, Disney Store is proud to introduce the Star Wars Elite Series, a premium line of toys featuring iconic characters from the expansive world of Star Wars. This exclusive collection is meticulously engineered and crafted with Star Wars fans in mind.

Once a heroic Jedi Knight, Darth Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force, became a Sith lord and led the Empire's eradication of the Jedi Order. He remained in service of the Emperor, the evil Darth Sidious, for decades, enforcing his masters will and seeking to crush the fleeting Rebel Alliance. But there was still good in him.
