Revenge of the Jedi Darth Vader Celebration Exclusive
This version of Darth Vader comes from a poster that was originally used to promote the movie, then called Revenge of the Jedi. We all know how this ends as the title was changed to Return of the Jedi.
For the packaging, they included a poster in the pack so you can pull out the poster to reveal the figure. The box also has a secret display stand so you can display the poster.
This version of Darth Vader used the tampo technique that you see on the poster to mimic the look of the hemet to the rest of the figure. The texture from the poster was also used as inspiration for the cape and applied the same technique to the lightsaber.
The figure itself is cast in a very dark red and is a unique looking figure.
