MORE INFORMATION

  • This Darth Vader action figure was released in the Star Wars Retro Collection single carded on May 1st, 2019 exclusively at Target stores
  • This version of Darth Vader is a faithful recreation of the original Kenner Darth Vader 3.75" action figure from 1978 (you can look at the original figure in our archive here: Kenner Darth Vader
  • You can compare both figures side-by-side with our comparison tool: 2019 Retro Collection Darth Vader VS. 1978 Kenner Darth Vader
  • Hasbro measured/scanned the original figure and captured all the details (and lack thereof) in this figure, right down to the size of the peg holes in the bottom of the feet
  • There are some differences however, for example this new version of Darth Vader has different production numbers on the back of the legs and it has the Hasbro copyright printed on it instead of the Kenner name
  • Other differences can be found in the accessories, the lightsaber has a slightly larger handle than the original and even though the plastic cape has the same height it's about half an inch wider than the original (it wraps further around the figure in the front)
  • Make no mistake though, the accessories feel like the real deal from back in 1978, the weight of the accessories, the look, the colors, the details right down to the lightsaber tip, it all feels authentic
  • Darth Vader's plastic robe can be taken off
  • The lightsaber telescopes in and out of the arm and it can be taken out of the arm entirely
  • The packaging was weathered on the outside on purpose to differentiate the Star Wars Retro Collection from the original Kenner figures
  • The red Retro Collection sticker can be taken off (you will need to use a hair dryer), but we don't recommend that you do that, because there is a very high possibility that you will damage the card (the sticker is very tough to get off)
  • Although this Darth Vader is a reproduction, it's simply amazing to stare at this pristine represenation of a figure many of us played with some 40+ years ago
  • This is nostalgia folks, so if you grew up with the originals back in the day, go and treat yourself, pick up some Star Wars Retro Collection figures, they are fun!
