    always wanted him but never did get one. I remember my cousin got Vader and Leia for her birthday. I was soooo Jealous. I only had Ben, the droids, Jawa and Chewie

    He’s great! I always loved this Kenner Star Wars line.

    I always thought it was weird how Kenner cheaped out on some figures and went all out on others.

    It just seems the limited joints light hollow non removable anything of Vader, Chewy, 3PO, Stormtrooper and Bobo Fett are a sharp contrast with the human figures --- almost like they belong to two different toy lines.

    Still cool figures

    12" Fett was deluxe IMO. Great line.

    I got this DV for 2 bucks at a garage sale including the cape and light saber. Horrible articulation and he couldnt hold the light saber. Still he was the main villain for the team of Steve Austin and Pulsar.

    Once of the best looking Vader figures IMO.

    I agree, Fett retailed for around five dollars more than the others in Canada at least, so he was definitely deluxe. I absolutely love this line, I wish it continued further.

    Beautiful photo. The head sculpting on that Vader, while maybe not Hot Toys accurate, was incredibly accurate for its time, and quite complex. It's a great toy.
    PLEASE HELP ME WITH THESE CARDS:

    Still have mine too. Now he is in a retro box.
    If a Mego figure of God did not exist, it would be necessary for EMCE to invent him.
