The force is strong with this one
Here we have the Hot Toys Star Wars Episode IV Darth Vader 1/6 Scale Action Figure. Phew.. that was a long one! Oops forgot to add its part of the movie masterpiece line. This figure stands at roughly 35cm tall and has over 30 points of articulation.
When I first saw this figure I was really impressed by the proportions in the helmet and overall features. Hot Toys have put a lot of effort into creating what is possibly the closest replica of Darth Vader that I have ever seen. The quality and detail of his armour and accessories is superb. This becomes very apparent when compared side by side with other Darth Vader figures I own. As you can see in the images below, this figure comes with a range of accessories.
I find your lack of faith disturbing
There are 9 hands in total including one that displays Darths famous force choke. Here is the breakdown:
– One pair of fists
– One pair of open palms
– One pair of palms for holding lightsaber
– One pair of posing palms
– One Force choking right hand
They have also nicely included two spare wrist pegs in case you damage any. The lightsaber and belt accessories both light up allowing for some really cool battle recreations with the Obi Wan figure! The hilt of the lightsaber and blade can be seperated allowing the lightsaber to be attached to the belt.
In addition to the lighting effects, you can use a remote control (similar to the Hot Toys ED-209 figure) to control speaking functions. These include a breathing sound effect and several of his most famous Episode IV lines. The light and talking functions are excellent and really make this figure extra special. Inserting the batteries to get it all powered up however takes a little time and patience! They do helpfully include all the instructions on how to do this.
And now, your highness, we will discuss the location of your hidden rebel base…
Another really cool accessory is the interrogator droid. It comes with a variety of nasty torture implements to use on princess Leia. Make sure you read the instructions which will guide you on how to apply each accessory, the overall effect is excellent!
Darth looks really cool on display with the specially designed stand that includes a Darth Vader nameplate and the Star Wars movie logo.
