Sideshow is currently taking pre-orders for their new battle-damaged Darth Vader, complete with flaming saber (and we didn’t even know lightsabers could catch fire)!
Priced at just over $600, the piece comes with an incredibly well-detailed base and an interchangeable “Anakin” helmet. For even more info, check out the specs below, or on Sideshow’s website. Also, for you avid collectors, be sure to get your pre-orders in soon. This is a limited edition release and may be harder to find after launch.
The Darth Vader Mythos Statue measures 24.75” tall and 24.4” wide as the menacing Sith Lord stands atop the flaming wreckage of a Rebel X-Wing™ engine, battle-worn but not backing down until he claims victory for the Galactic Empire. With lightsaber drawn and his armor in disarray, the dreaded villain shrugs off the enemy fire while channeling his fearsome Force powers. Capturing the crossroads in his character evolution, this Star Wars statue includes two distinct portraits — one featuring his iconic helmet with slight battle damage, and one unhelmeted to reveal the scarred visage of Anakin Skywalker™ completely consumed by his own darkness.
Anakin Skywalker was weak. I destroyed him.
The Darth Vader Mythos Statue features a fully sculpted costume recreating both the intricate hardware of his cybernetic life support systems and the dynamic, flowing movement of his windswept robes and cape. Detailed tatters and tears in his black uniform reveal the burns he sustained during his most fateful duel as well as the mechanical limbs he was gifted with by his new master, Darth Sidious. Darth Vader’s robes also feature striking paint applications that reflect the glow of the flames and the red lightsaber in the figure, adding depth and dimension to the scene.
The Exclusive Edition of the Darth Vader Mythos Statue includes an additional third portrait with a cracked helmet, exposing just a sliver of the man beneath the mask and showcasing the villain’s duality. The powerful Sith Lord also includes a swap-out lightsaber blade designed with a flamelike effect, adding drama and danger to this formidable weapon. Unleash the Emperor’s most lethal protégé in your collection with these exclusive display options.
