About This Life-Size Bust
Sideshow is proud to announce the Darth Vader Life-Size Bust, created in partnership with the talented FX artists at Spectral Motion. Capturing every detail of the Sith Lord and his helmet, this versatile bust has been constructed so that the helmet may be removed to reveal Anakin's scarred visage. The interior of the face and neck portions of the mask are fully detailed to represent all of the wiring and technology necessary to sustain Anakin inside his suit. The bust is crafted in fiberglass, polystone, fabric and metal for the most authentic and realistic representation. Each piece is individually painted and finished, each with its own unique quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles product. Standing over two feet high, the Darth Vader Life-Size Bust is a must-have for any STAR WARS collection.

A must have for all Star Wars collectors
This is the holy grail of all Star Wars collection. Darth Vader will always be an element of the whole Star Wars saga. And this life size bust is a testimonial to his legacy. It maybe pricey but once you save money for this, it's worth it and an investment as well.

It's awesome! Very detailed bust! I've been collecting everything related to SW universe for over 10 years. This is my first Sideshow bust and it's AWESOME!!! Thanks!
I purchased this bust and now have it displayed in my living room. Yes, my living room, its a great conversation piece. This is the absolute most exquisite piece of film memorabilia ever created, a true artistic masterpiece. Best purchase I ever made. Thank you to Sideshow for making this.

Thank you Mr Prowse
Arguably one the most iconic figures of our generation made accessible to us by the genius of Sideshow Collectables. A constant reminder of my childhood, adolescence and companion to my adult life. This bust is completely unrivalled in it's quality. Adjectives other than Perfect are insignificant!

The Lord of the Sith sets the bar
I've got several LS busts from SSC: Maul, Palpatine, Wolverine, Hellboy, Capt.America... I just got Vader for my birthday. By size, weight, & overall appearance, this one wins hands down. The detail without the mask is impressive and it's the eye catcher in all the displays. Thanks Sideshow!!
I've been waiting a long time for this one. This bust looks fantastic next to my CM vader. Throw a little soft lighting on him in the dark and I'd sware he's really there...staring me down. LOVE IT!!

No dark side on this one !!! — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
If you want to find the center piece of your collection and still easy to display then this is it. Nothing comes close... the size of the boxes either.
This was my second life-size bust from Sideshow and all I can say is wow !!! The realism of the Shaw head is incredible and when it's in Vader mode, it commands a room. My friends are in awe everytime they see him.

Darth Vader Bust
I have had several Vader helmets in the past, but this one is my favorite. The different display options are great and I love the Jedi reveal feature on it. The 2 boxes it came in are massive and it's well packed. Great job Sideshow team and thank you!
This is the most incredible Star Wars collectible ever made. The bust is enormous and it is like having darth vader in your own home. I also managed to put the helmet over darth vaders head. I highly recomend this to anybody in the world!!!

This is my Favorite statue next to my Master Replicas Millenium Falcon! This statue was hit right on the money. I have all the Sith head bust lined up..thanks SIDESHOW!!!!
— A viewer
I have had the opportunity to see this bust in person. By comparison to all other Vader masks from the original 3 films, this piece, though a bust, takes the cake. It is the most imposing and threatening Vader by far. Amazing.
— A viewer
AWESOME!! — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
I'm writing this review with the bust at my side...there are no words!!!If I have to find a fault, it's a shame you can't put the helmet on Anakin's head, but it really doesn't take away value from it!! a must have!!!

Impressive is an understatement — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
I received the exclusive version a few days ago. I was fully prepared for an amazing piece and Sideshow did not disappoint. I can't stop looking at it.
Truely a finish as a new car — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
Mindblowing, huge, smooth, highly detailed masterpiece from Sideshow - I have collected since 1979 and this is the centerpiece of my or anyones Star Wars collection - a true grail
— Lasse Lund
Impressive.... — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
....most impressive. This piece DEMANDS attention. Easily the best Vader collectible yet. If you miss this, you will be kicking yourself. The only downside, more boxes to store.

Museum Quality! — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
Superb Museum Quality for this high end collectible! The detail is all there! I plan to purchase a heavy duty turn table so the entire bust with portrait can slowly turn to reveal Anakin's back of head to reveal Anakin's battle scars and detail! Perfect job Sideshow! A must for high end collectors!

Exclusive Darth Vader Bust — Reviewing the Exclusive Edition
The Darth Vader 1:1 Bust is simply amazing! The sculpt paint job and the attention to detail is top notch. This has to be the best Darth Vader collectible ever produced. A must have for any collection or home theater setup!
I find your lack of faith disturbing
I just recieved my Vader bust a few days ago and it is by far the best one in my collection. I placed him next to Grievous and I can't wait for Boba Fett to arrive next! Everything about this piece is perfect and anyone who loves Star Wars should get this one!
What a wonder peice! You did it again Sideshow!
I received my bust yesterday and what a wonderful job side show. Love it! I even modified mine so he could wear mask and head at same time. It's so very cool. Thanks side show for making this peice.
— Aaron Egawa
This is the ultimate Vader setup, I love the fact that it was decided to use the look of the original actor from ROTJ and not Hayden made this bust perfect for my collection, love the original stuff! thanks Sideshow and to all who made him come alive.
