  • This Darth Vader was released individually carded
  • Hasbro branded the figure as "A New Hope" on the packaging and included a great looking base
  • The base is Ben Kenobi's cape - with his lightsaber molded on top of it
  • The top part of Darth Vader's helmet is removable - which when removed reveals a young Anakin Skywalker
  • The soft-goods outer cape is not removable
  • Darth Vader stands well without help from a stand
  • The red lightsaber fits well into both hands
  • The figure looks overall great - but Hasbro should have used a much older looking Anakin head instead
  • Even though the figure came straight out of the packaging for this review - the head had same paint smudges and scratches on it


Darth Vader has waited many years to confront his former master. But Obi-Wan has one last lesson for his former Padawan, the Force transcends time and space. As Vader witnesses Obi-Wan become one with the Force, his victory is bittersweet, for he is deprived of the satisfaction of seeing Kenobi's lifeless body at his feet!
