  • 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.
