The Most Detailed Star Wars Figure Ever Is 13 Inches of Sith Glory

Putting every action figure ever released to shame, Sideshow Collectibles has announced an absolutely stunning 13.5-inch tall Dark Vader figure that's promised to be the most detailed Star Wars toy ever released. It includes everything from glowing electronics on his chest plate and belt, a selection of nine-different swappable posed hands to choose from, lit and unlit lightsabers, and even separate display stands for the Vader and his removable helmet.
When it's available in early 2014 it will sell for £165, but given it's already available for pre-order there's a slim chance any of them will still be available by the time next year rolls around. "I find your lack of faith disturbing." [Sideshow Collectibles via Newlaunches] Read More >>
