    Thinks Luke's Skills Are "Most Impressive."
    Tells Luke: "I Am Your Father.""
    Comments: Darth Vader has sinister plans to use Cloud Cityís carbon-freeze chamber. Reluctant to try this crude process on the Emperorís prize, Luke Skywalker, Vader decides to test it first on Han Solo. The process works, and although Luke finds his way into the chamber, Vaderís plans fail as Luke escapes and confronts him in heated lightsaber combat. At the end of this dramatic battle, Vader confesses to Luke the secret that has burned within him: He is indeed Lukeís father!







    Points of Interest:
  • This Darth Vader was previously released as: This time around, the right shoulder is painted with more "battle damage" and the helmet is glued on. For some reason, he'ss also a little bit shorter.
  • The Large Storage Crate is a repaint of the accessory from 2002's Hoth Survival Accessory Set.
  • The Small Storage Crate is a repaint of the accessory originally from 2003's Obi-Wan Kenobi (Kamino Showdown) deluxe set.
  • The Conduit Spool is a repaint of the accessory that was planned for the cancelled Yavin Hangar Accessory Set.
  • While the cape is removable, since the helmet is now glued down, the elastic doesn't stretch far enough around the helmet without damaging the cape.
  • The display stand is incorrectly embossed with the Star Wars logo, and not the The Empire Strikes Back logo.

    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.
