  • 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.

    Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
