  • This Darth Vader is a re-release and re-work of the Star Wars SAGA Darth Vader (Bespin Duel) figure from the year 2002
  • The figure now comes with a slightly re-tooled left hand - which doesn't have a magnet in it
  • Vader has a button on the back - which when pressed - moves the upper body back and forth (Slashing Lightsaber Attack!)
  • The lightsaber fits well into the right hand
  • The figure stands quite well without a stand
  • The plastic robe comes off very easily (and needs to be removed if you want to use the action feature)
  • Aesthetically - this version of Vader looks nice - but it feels outdated with not a single ball-joint in the figure


Darth Vader is the evil and much-feared military leader of the Galactic Empire. He seeks to bring young Luke Skywalker over to the dark side. As the two battle on a precarious outer walkway on Bespin, Vader reveals a shocking secret that shatters Luke's world.
