Go Back to 1977 With Hot Toys 40th Anniversary Vintage Darth Vader Figure

Hot Toys Darth Vader – Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (40thAnniversary) Sixth Scale Figure MMS 572 is available for pre-order now for $274.99 USD and is slated to release Q3-Q4, 2020. Pre-Order today & Enjoy 5% Cash Back with your Purchase!

On May the 4th of this year, otherwise known as Star Wars Day, Hot Toys announced two retro-styled figures in celebration of the 40thanniversary of the Empire Strikes Back. One was a Hot Toys Exclusive Boba Fett, while the other was the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader. If you’re not excited yet, you’re not paying attention.

Packaged in vintage art boxes designed to harken back to the old Kenner Toys 3.75” era, Vader looks amazing. 

Hot Toys has managed to come up with a presentation that both pays homage to that 1977 packaging while still retaining the somewhat recognizable flavor of their own boxes. This is a figure I’d be just as happy to display in the box as out of it.

If the classic box art wasn’t enough to tempt collectors, the figure itself and the accessories it comes with surely will. 

Various swappable gloved hands and a removable outer helmet piece are just some of the cool extras, but we’re betting that the LED-lighted diorama base that looks like it was ripped right out of Cloud City will be the favorite amongst fans.

While this 40thAnniversary Vader is basically just a re-release of the Empire Strikes Back Darth Vader release from back in 2018, that figure has since sold out. Collectors who may have missed that earlier version or who just want to have the ultra-cool vintage packaging will be excited to grab this iteration of the Dark Lord.
