    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.
