Who Would Win In A Fight Between Batman And Darth Vader?

James Earl Jones Was Originally Paid $7000 For Voicing Darth Vader

If you can believe it, James Earl Jones was paid just $US7000 for doing the voice of Darth Vader in the first Star Wars film. That’s about $US26,000 adjusted for inflation, but still not anywhere near a huge payday for a major motion picture.

It has a 526hp engine and is no doubt capable of some serious road rage in the wrong hands.


Life-Size Darth Vader Hot Wheels: That's No Hoon

When he’s not making life miserable for the Rebellion in his custom TIE Fighter, Darth Vader must surely spend his days cruising around the Death Star in this awesome life-size Hot Wheels vehicle bearing his unmistakeable likeness.


A Vader Suitcase Can Even Squeeze Into A TIE Fighter's Overhead Bins

Even though it’s designed for kids, it’s going to be hard for adult Star Wars fans not to trade in their carry-on luggage for this awesome 3D Vader suitcase — even if they are Yoda-sized.


Darth Vader Will Run For President Of Ukraine

In perhaps the most unexpected turn of events in Ukrainian politics, RT News says that Darth Vader, Sith Lord of the Galactic Empire, has declared himself a candidate in the Ukrainian presidential election. The political force is strong with this one.
