  • Compared to the Vintage Collection Darth Vader - this version is a tiny bit shorter - but much - much bulkier (which is appropriate for Vader)

Darth Vader is a master of the lightsaber. Many years have passed since the Sith Lord has fought someone who can also wield the legendary weapon of the Jedi and the Sith. Calling upon his powerful connection to the Force, Vader ignites his Lightsaber to battle young Luke Skywalker.
