May the Fourth Be With You 2 ... ...

Now for the icing on the cake on this May Fourth ... Sideshow Deluxe Darth Vader!

This is to date the best sideshow figure I have ever experienced. No wonder they dubbed this the Deluxe set. The joints are sturdy and the quality is almost superb. I used 'almost' for the nature of subjectivity.

The belt and chest units lights up and the battery compartment is stowed at the back. Collectors beware. Batteries are included. Please remove.

I've stripped him down to the body suit and attached the detail exposed Anakin's head.

The details on this piece has been wowing me from unboxing to photo shoot to typing this entry.

Everything laid out and this is really a very detailed and fantastic masterpiece.

All right, let's flick the switch and you'll realized the LED doesn't simply lit up; it flickers. See video below

The light saber hilt rest on the hook on the belt.

No, the light saber doesn't light up but your camera or photoshop can do the trick.

What else is included in this deluxe set? A base with the imperial logo and yes, it lights up and yes, batteries are inside.

"Luke, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy."

"You are free to use any methods necessary, but I want them alive. No disintegration"

Darth Vader is about 2.03m while Boba is 1.83m but Sideshow kind of went crazy with super sizing Vader here.

The next sweet accessory is this helmet and mask accessories with light-up Meditation Chamber display base. Oh yes, batteries included.

Check out the details that isn't really essential but really appreciate the effort by Sideshow.

Don't bother assembling this together because it's meant to be apart.
