Darth Vader - Vintage Star Wars

Darth Vader, one of the greatest film villains of all time. This is a figure every boy owned in the late 70's and early 80's. It's a classic. I always wished he had just a little more bulk to him, but how can I really complain? For the time of his original release he's action figure perfection.

I was born in 1982, so by the time I knew what Star Wars was the toys were out of the stores. I thought his name was Dark Vader when I was in first grade. I didn't see Star Wars until I was in 2nd grade, and then it change my life and became an obsession. So my Vader was probably bought 2nd hand at a local comic shop, but I'm not sure. I never had his lightsaber so he was armed with a red toothpick from my Grandmother's house. That toothpick is still more intimidating than the piece of plastic he came with, but it doesn't retract.


  1. Love Darth! Gotta get one one day.
