    Comments: When Anakin Skywalker falls to the dark side and becomes Darth Vader, he casts off his entire past. To further embrace this change, he paints his starfighter black and chooses a black astromech droid to replace his former droid companion R2-D2. The outer darkness of his fighter and droid mirrors the inner darkness of the new Sith Lord.






    Points of Interest:
  • R4-K5 is a repaint of 2005's ROTS R4-G9.
  • The display stand has the wrong logo. It should be the generic Star Wars logo that has been used for Expanded Universe characters.
  • Several typos have been found on the cardback: The words "Dark Vader" and "new the Sith Lord" have been found. On this particular card, "Darth Vader" has been fixed.
  • Photography by Dan Curto
  • Also included with this figure is a folding pamphlet that shows other toys in The Saga Collection.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
