One of the greatest bad guys in movie history deserves a figure that stands more than just six inches (15cm) tall. So Sideshow Collectibles has finally done Anakin Skywalker some justice with its upcoming quarter-scale Vader that's just over 26 inches (66cm) tall. That's just about the size of a newborn infant, minus the dirty nappies and constant crying.
When available starting sometime in March of next year the $US500 figure won't be quite as articulated as other highly-detailed collectibles. Vader's head can turn, but that might actually be the limit of this figure's range of motions. It's impressively-detailed, though, with over 11 artists being credited for its sculpt and paint job. But most importantly this Vader's lightsaber does light up and glow, which is the only detail most of us ever actually care about when it comes to Star Wars collectibles.
