S.H. Figuarts has shared our first look at the new battle-damaged Darth Vader from the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series
S.H. Figuarts has given us a sneak peek at their new battle-damaged Darth Vader figure from Obi-Wan Kenobi. The toy company has designed a brand-new action figure inspired by his look in the series’ gripping final lightsaber duel. In the sequence, Vader and Kenobi compete in another epic lightsaber battle resulting in Vader’s suit sustaining critical damage. The result is a mangled helmet that revealed Anakin Skywalker’s burnt and scarred face. It was a showdown that helped Kenobi reconcile with the mistakes in his past. And now Tamashii Nations’ Figuarts line has captured that moment with this new figure.
The set includes interchangeable regular and damaged portraits, interchangeable hands, his iconic Lightsaber, a fabric cape, and more. But don’t take my word for it. Scroll down and check out the teaser images below.
It is worth noting that the figure has been crafted using several layers of soft goods for the cape and torso costume components. And sadly, this will affect poseability and the dreaded dust build-up. But when a figure looks this good, surely those are minor detractions. Especially if your glass cabinet is airtight!
Unfortunately, Tamashii Nations has not yet disclosed any additional information about the figure. Only that the figure is expected to hit the shelves in November. But now that the first reveal has been shared, surely it’s only a matter of time before this incredible new figure is showcased in all its glory. Either way, this figure looks exceptional and will take pride of place in any Star Wars fan’s collection. Expect this new Vader figure to set you back 9,900 Yen (about $69). Pre-orders should be available from July 3.
