  • Comments: Darth Vader was known and feared throughout the galaxy as incredibly ruthless and evil, one who used the awesome powers of the dark side of the Force to carry out Emperor Palpatine's horrific plans. But deep inside Lord Vader lay vestiges of the person he once was: young Anakin Skywalker, discovered on the planet Tatooine by a Jedi Knight who recognized the boy's special Force talents. Anakin showed much promise and grew to be a great Jedi. Finally, the dark side beckoned him - and Anakin became Darth Vader.

    Point of Interest: This figure was described as having a "double cape" which refers to the inner robe over the shoulder armor, a detail that was unique to Darth Vader's outfit in A New Hope. An extra detail of red-tinted eyes was also added to the helmet.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
