Come with me and rule the galaxy as Father and Son

Received my Vader today 10th premium Format from the original star wars line, and WOW. He is extremely detailed in every way. Far surpassed my expectations. Can't wait for "The Circle is now Complete" Diorama. Go Sideshow.

How Deliciously EVIL!!!

I was totally blown away when I recieved this PF. Between the material and the light up features...So AWESOME!!! I feel bad for any collector who missed out, as he is just breathtaking. He looks GREAT next to my PF Obi Wan. Thanks SS for bring Darth Vader to life!!!

I'm in love!

This is a truly great peace! Detail is incredible and the quality and detail is amazing. This is another example of why it's worth it to blow nearly a week of full time wages on something that sits on shelf. One of the greatest pieces in my collection.

The Almost Definitive Darth Vader Figure!

Bottom line, I love this figure and really only have true praise to give it. My few issues are I would have hoped for a completely erect Vader his stance makes him look a tad short. I would have preferred an unlit lightsaber. The drape on the cape is breathtaking! Beautiful job!

Awesome!

Just the fact that this Darth Vader lights up was enough for me to buy one. The detail is amazing, this is by far the best looking Vader in my entire Star Wars collection!

1:4 Darth Vader Sideshow Exclusive

I got my 1:4 Darth Vader Sideshow Exclusive and could not be more happy with it. Sideshow nailed this one guys. The detail is amazing. This thing is so huge! I am going to be making a special stand with a glass case to display it. Get one if you ever have the chance, you won't regret it.

Impressive...Most Impressive.

There are other Vader statues, however this work of art puts those to shame. The size, the costume, the attention to detail and the light function all come together to produce not only the best Vader statue that I've ever seen, but the best collectible that I've ever seen. Thank you Sideshow.

Our Dark Lord

It takes a lot to impress me, Sideshow not only impressed me with this one, they blew me away! Good God, can it get any better? What will Grievous be like? Money well spent!

Jaw Dropping...

I am blown away with this piece. By far the best in my collection so far. It was funny because my entire department at work watched me open the FedEx package from SideShow like I was a kid on Xmas. I was ESTATIC! And everyone admired it just as much as I did. Great job SideShow. Keep it up!

mouse droid wheels

Great work sideshow. the vader is incredible. The only problem that I see is that only after 3 days, the rubber on the mouse droid wheels is eating into the display base. collectors might what to use some black posterboard under the wheels.

SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO SAY TO ALL THE COLLECTORS

Just a note to say we are all blessed. Just be aware there are thousands of collectors that couldn't possibly afford it. If it was up to me, I would purchase this figure for all Starwar Collectors. For those that own one...just say "THANK YOU"!

IMPOSSIBLE TO SCULPT A BETTER DARTH VADER

Sideshow Collectibles has created the best Darth Vader ever produced. I am always intrigued by what the human spirit is capable of. What gives one so much talent to be an expert. I guess it is through persistance and dedication. No words can explain this figure. Seeing is believing!!!

SUPURB DETAIL

THE MOST REALISTIC PIECE EVER MADE!REAL LEATHER AND CAPE W/ LATCH AND WHEELS THAT MOVE ON XCLUSIVE!

Darth Vader PF- Wow!!!

Just wanted to let you guys know what a great piece this is.. expertly done.. awesome looking. Great Addition to my collection

Fantastic!

The detail and craftsmanship is amazing. I love the mouse droid too....very cool. It was worth the year wait! Thanks Sideshow....can't wait to get my Grevious!

GREAT JOB SIDESHOW!!!

The detail is incredible. The only things I could say that could have been done better is the "cod piece", lightsaber, and the chest panel lights. The cod piece looks like its floating on the body suit. the lights look washed out. the lightsaber doesn't catch the light because its so clear

The Real Darth Vader!!!

Superb item.Sideshow really paid attention and put every details of the character in this item.Keep it up. Though it is very expensive but it's worth the money spent on. This is the 1st item I bought,next one is darth maul bust.I really admire the craftman of this item.Really cool collection.5 stars

DARTH VADER WITH MOUSE DROID

This is by far the best star wars 1/4 scale to date.I have both luke and han but DARTH VADER tops them all. his lightsaber lights up and belt with batteries or you can plug him in and save on batteries and the mouse droid has wheels that move.KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB SIDESHOW!!!!!!

Darth Vader : Side Show exclusive

"Lord Vader Rise.I have purchased Han and Luke, but this one is the ultimate one. Perfection at its best. Detail is amazing; Just like you would imagine.20 inches tall with real leather and clothe. Saber and chest plate light up. Is it worth 300+, Yes.One of the best Star Wars collectibles ever.

MOST AUTHENTIC DARTH VADER EVER!!!

AS A COLLECTOR OF ALMOST ALL OF THIS DARK LORD'S FIGURES, I MUST SAY THAT THIS IS THE CLOSEST YOU CAN EVER GET TO THE REAL THING. EVERY DETAIL FROM THE HELMET DOWN TO THE CAPE AND CHEST BELT REALLY SHOWS THE EFFORD SIDESHOW HAS PUT INTO BRINGING THIS STATUE TO LIFE WITH A PUSH OF THE LIGHT SWITCH.

Far exceeded my expectations!!!

I was hesitant on spending over $300 on an action figure, however, when I saw the prototype pictures, I found myself pre-ordering the Darth Vader Sideshow Exclusive. As the time got closer, I bit my lip when my credit card was billed. Once my package finally arrived, I was by no means disappointed! This was a museum quality piece. It was beautiful. The light saber was an exact replica of Vaders saber in Episode 5. The clothing was real. Cloth for the cape and drapes, leather (or vinyl) for the suit and boots! The instrument panels on his belt and chest even light up along with the light saber. This figure was well worth the investment and I have absolutely NO REGRETS!!! Thank you!!!
