With today being “May the Fourth”, Hot Toys was one of the companies expected to preview some new Star Wars figures and they’ve actually come out and showcased a handful of figures including their  1:6th ESB Boba Fett, Vintage Colour Variant but also a re-release of their 1:6th ESB Darth Vader.


Just like the Boba figure, this Vader release comes in a Retro-styled box with a large viewing window making it an excellent choice for those who like displaying their figures in-box which is not an option with most Hot Toys figures. Being a re-release, there’s nothing else new here but it does provide collectors with another opportunity to pick up this Vader without paying over the odds. We’ll keep you updated on the Western price point and release window as soon as it hits later today, in the meantime, catch a full breakdown below :
