To celebrate Return of the Jedi‘s 40th anniversary, Hot Toys will go back to the Star Wars classics. In retro Kenner-ish packaging, they’re doing new passes on major characters. Up first? Darth Vader and Threepio. Vader comes in regular and deluxe versions; the latter includes a staircase diorama piece and alternate light-up electrocuted head. Threepio features diecast meta; body parts, and a bonus Salacious B. Crumb figure.
From the official descriptions, Vader features “a meticulously crafted Darth Vader helmet with complex interior mechanical detail, a stunning likeness of Anakin Skywalker, highly detailed armor and skillfully tailored body suit, LED light-up chest panel and belt, an LED light-up lightsaber, and a themed figure base!”
The deluxe version “exclusively includes an interchangeable light-up helmeted head inspired by Darth Vader shocked by Force Lightning, a staircase diorama base, and figure base arms for additional display options!”
