Preorder This New Star Wars Darth Vader Figure And Become Master Of The Dark Side
Christmas 2014 is in the books. Now, we must look towards the future, for in twelve months it shall be upon us once again. With that in mind, if you absolutely know you’re going to be friends with someone come December 2015, you can drop some money on a sweet new Darth Vader figure.
Hottoy, the Hong Kong purveyor of pop culture accessories, has debuted a very amazing looking 1/6th scale model of the Darkest lord of the Sith. The once proud Anakin Skywalker is imbued with over 30 points of articulation and includes nine different replaceable hands, for getting that moment just right.
Naturally, Lord Vader comes with his iconic red lightsaber - which lights up, of course. As does his utility belt. Pending licensor approval, he will also come with that nasty looking interrogator droid that did a number or two on Leia in Episode IV.
The figure has been hand sculpted with loving detail by Yoon Suk Choi, Seung Min Kang, Seung Soo Yoo and painted by Lok Ho.
The figure is currently up for pre-order on Sideshow Collectibles and is scheduled to ship in September of next year, well before Christmas. (Email me and I’ll tell you where to ship it). Vader does not come cheap; he retails for $299. Impressive, most impressive.
