The first seven action figures released in The Retro Collection were revealed in Hasbro's showroom at the 2019 Toy Fair. The Darth Vader action figure featured on this page was released the following May along with Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, and Stormtrooper. At the same time, Hasbro released the very first classic Kenner style Grand Moff Tarkin carded action figure with a remake of the classic Kenner Escape From Death Star board game. All seven figures were released exclusively at Target stores on May 12, 2019, and saw wider distribution later in the year.
