  • Comments: "What is thy bidding, my Master?" Darth Vader asks, kneeling respectfully before the holographic image of Emperor Palpatine. They have both felt a great disturbance in the Force; Palpatine believes that Anakin Skywalker's son is the cause. Vader suggests bringing Luke over to the dark side to make him a powerful aly. "He will join us or die," Vader vows to his Master.










    Points of Interest:
  • Darth Vader is a repack of 2004's VOTC Darth Vader.
  • When the base is pushed, it plays the entire dialogue between Vader and the Emperor from The Empire Strikes Back.
  • When the hologram is disconnected from the base, only the first line of dialogue is played: "What is thy bidding, my Master?"
  • This set was available from TOMY during Star Wars Celebration Japan. It was also sold during San Diego Comic Con, but without the Japanese text labels.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
