  • Accessory Count: 6
  • Accessory Details: 1 Red Lightsaber, 1 Lightsaber Hilt, 2 Additional Forearms (glove pieces), 2 Additional hands
  • This Elite Series Premium Darth Vader was released at Disney Stores on November 29th, 2016
  • The figure came with an extra set of hands, two glove extensions and a non-ignited lightsaber hilt
  • The hilt can be hung from a hook on Darth Vader's belt
  • The life support system on the chest, the belt and the chest armor are not removable (they could probably be removed, but you'll likely break the figure)
  • The inner and outer robes are not removable
  • There is no head underneath the helmet
  • Both lightsabers, the non-ignited and the ignited one, fit well into Vader's hands
  • Vader stands 12" tall (quite a bit taller than Princess Leia for example)
  • The hands are exchangable, but it'll take some time to exchange them (pretty tricky to get the hands attached to the ball-joints!)
  • There was no display stand included, but we had no problems displaying and posing Vader
  • The faux leather on the body suit looks authentic, it even has the visible stitching on the pants and arms
  • The belt boxes and the belt buckle were sculpted and painted well
  • The shoulder bells were given swivel joints, this way the arms can be moved further up than the typical 45 degree angle (nice!)
  • The outer robe has just about the correct length, it's just long enough to touch the ground a little bit
  • Vader looks fantastic overall, the sculpt looks outstanding and the soft-goods materials used for the inner and outer robe feel high quality
  • In the United States this figure could be found at Disney Stores on sale several times after its debut for $16 + tax, and that's a steal for this quality figure

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.
