Yet another Darth Vader custom figure. There’s been an uproar concerning the outcome of the new 6-inch Black Series Darth Vader. However, despite several wrong production choices, I thought there was potential in this figure, so I got to work as soon as he came in a parcel. The main issue is the mask, which is too big in comparison to the helmet. Nothing can be done there. However, other details can be improved, such as the eyes, which were repainted in black (the red version only appears in A New Hope). The shoulder pads were painted in black too. The cape and the robe required some tailoring: the chain was removed, a gap for Vader’s neck was cut in the centre of the cape, which was glued to the armour, and the extra cloth on the edges of the robe were removed. I hope you enjoy this improved version. SAM_2567 03 02 SAM_2566 13
