Exclusive Holiday Star Wars Darth Vader Action Figure

Star Wars: Jay Cochran - 2005.09.13


From Shop.StarWars.com:

- Unique red metallic finish (not vac-metallized), can be displayed with or without the base

- OTC-style card depicts a Ralph McQuarrie-inspired backdrop of the Executor bridge

- Keeping with tradition, a figure-exclusive holiday greeting card is also included

- Comes with the StarWarsShop-branded collector star case

Darth Vader bares his true colors in this decidedly Sith-inspired 2005 holiday action figure available exclusively here at the official store. The very first Vader figure to make a holiday appearance, it's also the first to be designed for display in a variety of showcase settings with or without the base.

This exclusive edition has a red metallic finish (not vac-metallized, as previously reported), and would make a standout addition to the silver series figures released in recent years. Also, with the color red so closely associated with the Sith (lightsabers, royal guards, Darth Maul), this red Vader represents a rare but fitting diversion from the man in black's iconic dark décor.

But for those who prefer to keep their scarlet Darth in the holiday spirit year-round, this figure makes a fantastic presentation piece both on and off the card. Displayed loose on the base, Vader fits perfectly alongside the previous holiday edition figures. On the card, however, is where this vermillion Vader really shines.

The classic Original Trilogy Collection-style card not only features the standard metallic wrap-around logo (showcased for the first time in red), but also depicts a Ralph McQuarrie-inspired backdrop of the Executor bridge decked out in holiday décor. Additionally, a figure-exclusive holiday greeting card is also included, this time illustrated with a whimsical scene of Vader building a "snowtrooper".

The reverse of the cardback calls out the fact that this figure is a StarWarsShop exclusive, and will be sent securely in a StarWarsShop-branded Star Case. This 2005 edition is limited, so make sure you pick one, two, or three up for yourself and those on your gift list this year!
