Rogue One Darth Vader POP! Review
The upcoming wave of POPs from the Star Wars movie universe come from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film will be set between Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV - A New Hope. If we're going back to the original trilogy timeline you know what that means....Darth Vader! I can't wait to see the mighty Sith Lord back on the big screen taking care of business. He's sure to be one of the highlights in the movie and a major promotional tool for both the movie and the new toy line.
We're taking an early peek at #143 Darth Vader and he looks better than ever. We finally get a new mold with a more movie accurate helmet shape and style. We also get nice new shiny paint job with better chest and bodydetails. The longer wrap around cape and classic pose looks great and intimidating. He has an overall smaller stature than previous versions but it’s not a major problem. I just wish they would have made one of the larger characters at 6 foot 8 inches just a little bigger. No light saber this time but I'm sure we will get alternate versions down the road that include one. I'm impressed with the overall detail and look of this figure, I recommend it for any Star Wars or Darth Vader fan. Funko seems to be getting better and better with the details on these POP! figures and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of them later this month. Pre Order at www.ToyWars.com or buy in the Vista, CA store starting September 30th.
