The Darth Vader Mythos Statue is an Exclusive Release from Sideshow Collectibles
About This Polystone Statue
Sideshow Collectibles proudly presents the Darth Vader: Dark Contemplations Statue from our Star Wars Mythos line. This unprecedented portrayal of the Dark Lord of the Sith captures Darth Vader's return to Mustafar. The heat and flames of that volcanic planet steel the resolve of Lord Vader as he considers the rage and loss contained by the fearsome mask in his hand. Three portraits, a younger Anakin, an older Anakin, and the masked version complement an equal number of interchangeable arms that allow the collector to illustrate this tale in a variety of ways. At twenty-one inches in overall height, the Darth Vader: Dark Contemplations Statue is a most impressive centerpiece for any Star Wars display.

Greatest Statue Ever Made
I absolutely cannot believe how amazing this statue looks. Every time I see it I am awed by its beauty. This is the kind of statue you can look at intently from every angle and it will always look flawless. Every swap out head and arm is amazing and the posing possibilities are truly awesome. 10/10!

Awesome! Great detail, presence and full of character. This mythos Vader is unlike any other out there. Forget the huge ES in this case and just buy one, it's impressive... Most impressive.
Instantly became the centrepiece of my Vader collection, simply awesome
Just got my Vader today and I was blown away by the detail. Great piece for Vader fans.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? This piece is incredible. The level of detail and quality of this statue is impressive. This is definitely the best purchase I have made in a long time.
— Christopher Cain
I cannot believe that it is still for sale. I think if people realized how amazing this piece is it will sell out quickly. You have so many display options with this piece it is almost like having more than one statue. Do not pass up on this piece you will be sorry if you do!

This piece is simply amazing! The detail brings it to life, and draws you to it. Have mine displayed helmet in hand near my life size Vader bust. Thank you for such a great work of art Sideshow.
This is absolutely one of the best pieces I own. Sideshow did an amazing job on the detail and you can't beat all the switch-out parts for multiple display options. This is a must own for Vader fans.

the Complete Saga in Statue Form!
this statue not only displays magnificently, but it also tells the story of star wars as a whole. the desperation in Anakin's eyes is almost believable as he gazes into his helmet and sees the cold dark future as Vader... now thats deep!!!! love this statue!!!

The best Darth Vader statue around! I love everything about this statue! The base looks even better in person, I just can't stop putting my eyes on this thing.
— David Marin
Excellent Sideshow, one simply spectacular statue of a character icon series Star Wars-Darth Vader-the best in my collection could admire all day and in any pose looks great, but my favorite is the case in hand.

what have i done?
The most explosive Vader statue to date! The explanation of choices made prior and the time fame details make this piece one of my personal favorites. Sculpture truly capture thought and the certificate of authentication its a piece of art on its own. Very impressive Sideshow!
At last i get it,and i'm in love this statue this awesome statue,so great paint job,i never seen like jobs before! well done!
This is a great statue.
— Joseph Menard
This was the piece that finally gave me the push I needed to really organize and show off my Star Wars collection, because it is insanely awesome. I've changed the display angle three different times trying to figure out the best one, but they're all great.
Vader is the third statue in the Mythos line that I own and I have to say that he is the best. This piece is amazing. Here's hoping that SSC creates more of these works of art. I sure hope that Han Solo is among future releases!
— Mike S.
Another home run!
Impressive! Most Impressive. Sideshow i must say LOL. Your skills are now complete! Its actually quite difficult to decide which way to display this piece. Helmet off or Helmet on...Light sabre or holding mask i just think its a home run any which way a collector decides to go. Awesome Job!
Darth Vader Mythos Statue
One word to describe this statue, awesome!!!
Impressive... most impressive.
Wow! Great piece. Amazing detail. The paint is so well done that I've been asked by several people if the base is lit. My only note would be that the arm with the closed fist is angled across his chest (like the arm holding the saber) rather than held out in front of him. Thrilled with the purchase!
The Force is Strong in this One!
Dark Contemplations is a dramatic and fantastic addition to the Mythos collection. Once again stunning design & attention the smallest detail. So many posing options for such an iconic character. Thank you Sideshow and well done, keep the Mythos coming!
