  • 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.
