Now I am the master! StarWars Black Darth Vader

I'm normally not a Starwars guy. My father was, so I've seen all the movies, but that's it. I don't care about it, so I normally walk right past Starwars toys on my way to look at Transformers or Marvel stuff. However, on my recent visit to the hallowed toy aisles, I caught a peripheral glance of the Dark Lord, the killer of the Jedi, Darth Vader! I had to grab him, as he's honestly the only Starwars character I ever liked. This is the 1:12 scale version.

First glance, the mold details are excellent! Tons of subtle detailed switches, knobs, and buttons, as well as textures and without a doubt the finest cape/cloak I've ever seen in a toy. He's heavy! Articulation is similar to the Marvel Legends line, without any alternate hands. He's got his light saber holding hand and a Force power hand.

Overall, he's a great find. If you are a hardcore Starwars fan, I'm pretty sure you're dedicated to this guy already. If you are a casual toy collector, I highly recommend this guy as your lone Starwars toy, if anything just to march around the house blasting the Vader theme on your phone, telling everyone that their powers are weak, and that you ARE their father!
Skeletor's sad he isn't allowed to join the Buckethead Club.


"Hey! Wha the £¥€&! Magneto, is that you?"

Impressive! You have a cape, armor, gadgets, and a theme song... 
but can you choke your enemies with a wiggly of a finger?


Ever thought about replacing the robots with evil clones?

"By the power of Grayskull!"

Impressive! But why do you keep hitting yourself, He-Man?

He-Man beat himself up? Why didn't I think of doing that!


  • It's Darth Vader!

  • None. It's exactly what it's supposed to be.
