This Vader is exceptional. The craftsmanship is incredible. Well done

A wonderful piece!

This was my second Hot Toys figure purchase and I am very pleased. Now, getting all of his little batteries in place was a bit of a pain but worth it. Once you get him in a good pose and put all the lights on, he is truly breathtaking, more than he is without them.

Very pleased

ROTJ Vader

I swear I hear the 'Imperial March' song each time I open the box. Incredible figure.

Darth Vader

Exceptional craftsmanship, absolutely love it!


This could quite possibly be the greatest thing I have ever bought in my life, everything about it is just perfect.

Amazing product!

Love this figure! Great quality and looks great on my shelf!

star wars

thanks for an amazing star wars product


Amazing figure. First thing that struck me was the weight of the cape and how carefully it was packed. I know that isn't usually something you notice but the care taken on JUST the cape translates into the care and quality of the whole.


Another amazing figure added to my collection, just waiting for my palpatine to come early next year and I then have all the dark side villans #can'twait The base is fab and figure is awesome, my third vader, a little difficult to insert the batteries and found it quite hard to swap the arms. happy.

I love it

This thing is near perfect.


Empire is my favourite Star Wars film, I already have the Hoth Leia figure, so the Empire version of Vader was a must have! A superb figure, a bit fiddly to setup with batteries and the saber arm, but all went well and the figure looks amazing, especially with the Bespin stand.

Join me and together we can rule the galaxy

This is my first hot toys and I am very impressed takes me right back to that scene at cloud city. Awesome piece I hope they make a luke to go with it. My only complaint is the saber arm is very hard to change, thought I was gonna break it. Fortunately I didnt.

Most Impressive

After getting a really tiny screwdriver to activate all the LED features and a small struggle with the LED arm, I must say this is the best Vader figure I have. Besides the amazing detail of the helmet his suit fits perfect, no scrunching. The body poses easily and the base is very well done.

Darth Vader with lots of light-up accessories.

I am impressed with this Vader: cape is beautiful, articulation is good, stands well on his own, and the detailing is great. Has many light-up items: both sides of his belt, his chest (with randomn blinking), his lightsaber, and blinking lights on the base. Only complaint: Saber arm hard to change.
