I love this figure. Vader/ Anakin was more powerful then the emperor and any other character in the saga. His force abilities Potential know no limit. The force is strong with this figure.

Amazing, amazing I have been collecting awhile but been holding off from buying from Sideshow. And after receiving this and 1/6 Yoda. I should have been ordering so long ago. The detail and quality are second to none

Holy lightsaber Anakin!!!!!

This was my first Hot Toys purchase about a month ago, and I must say a home run. So detailed and super fun to pose. Love it

...most impressive

Best version of Darth Vader from the best of the original trilogy...

Wonderful sculpt and likeness here from Hot Toys... While, yeah, I would have loved it more if the faceplate of the helmet was also removable, I wouldn't knock the figure for it... Plus, the upcoming 1/4 scale version will hit that mark! As far as the 1/6 scale figures go however, in my opinion this one is most certainly the winner. The LED lightning options and the set-pieces are the icing on the cake!!!
