The team at Gentle Giant are adding to the Star Wars Day festivities by revealing a Jumbo Kenner Darth Vader statue
Even Darth Vader celebrates Star Wars Day!
May the 4th 2021 has been exquisite. So far, we’ve had reveals from ShopDisney, Hasbro, and Regal Robot. And now, the team at Gentle Giant is adding to the fun by revealing a Jumbo Kenner Darth Vader Figure. The figure is an exact recreation of the vintage figure that was released for The Empire Strikes Back in 1980. And just like the vintage version, this 12″ replica has a vinyl cape and an extendable Lightsaber.
GENTLE GIANT’S JUMBO FIGURE
Silver foil accents adorn a classic Empire Strikes Back blister card commemorating 2020’s 40th Anniversary of one of the greatest sequels of all time. Packaged in a re-sealable clam-shell blister, our limited edition Darth Vader has a newly updated glossy sheen that more closely resembles the luster of its original 3 ¾” counterpart. Recreated from authentic Kenner figures and 3D scanned geometry, this 12” scaled Darth Vader retro-collectible features an extendable orange bladed lightsaber and vinyl cape. Just like it was when you were a kid… only bigger!
This exceptional jumbo Dark Lord of the Sith will set you back $80 and is available to pre-order now. There is no release date listed as yet, so stay tuned and we’ll update the post accordingly.
