Cross over to the Dark Side with the Star Wars Episode VI Sideshow Darth Vader

We’re excited to announce this upcoming Sideshow Premium Format figure, set to be rendered in 26 inches of precision and detail. The craftsmanship on these types of creations is nothing short of astounding, the result of collaborative work across a spectrum of artisans. This Lord of the Sith is no different. Styled with his trademark helmet-mask and iconic black cape, he is perfected to look just as he is in the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

You can re-construct one of the most nail-bitingly significant duels in film history as Darth Vader is poised mid-step, descending the steps of his figure base reminiscent of the Death Star. Naturally, he carries his LED light-up blood-red lightsaber, ready to face his nemesis in a battle of galactic proportions for the Empire.

Display this work of art, available for pre-order now for delivery in the second half of 2016, next to Sideshow’s Boba Fett Premium Format Figure. It’s sure to become the focus piece of any Star Wars collection!

Okay, so we all know that in some ways, V-Day is a big corporate scam to get you to spend money on useless stuff in the name of “love”.

1. Heartbeats necklaces by Erica Weiner

Wanting to create affordable, vintage-looking jewelry with plucky pop-culture references, Brooklyn’s Erica Weiner started out as an art student and costumer for Broadway shows. She began making jewelry after work as a stress-relieving hobby, and now she works with eight to ten other women in her studio to bring her creations to life. Because we think it’s pretty cool to support all-lady owned and operated businesses, these badass Heartbeats lyrics necklaces get our stamp of approval. Whether your jam was sung by Fleetwood Mac, Beyoncé or the Talking Heads, you or your honey can wear some of your favorite lyrics around your neck. (I’ve got the R. Kelly one and I hardly take it off!) They’re $55 USD for oxidized silver for $65 USD for 24k gold-plated, so you can cop some lovely bling without hitting the triple digits. Nice!

3. Out of Print’s literary-themed neck candy

If your beloved’s always got their nose in a book, then Out of Print’s products (based on iconic and classic novels) will totally be their thing. I’m really digging the cursive “Doubleplusgood” necklace referencing George Orwell’s 1984, and this To Kill a Mockingbird inspired charm necklace. The special recipient of this gift can fondly recall The Bell Jar, The Catcher in the Rye, Alice in Wonderland and other legendary works of literature every time they look down. All of their pieces are approximately $30 USD, and if you throw in their Library Stamp tee, Out of Print will send a book to a community in need. Pretty fab!

Hot Toys Darth Vader will tempt you to the Dark Side this summer

Do you remember the first time you saw Episode IV: A New Hope of the quintessential Star Wars saga? If you’re a die-hard follower of the continuous struggle between light and dark, you’ll fondly recall the Rebel Alliance’s operatic struggle to destroy the Galactic Empire’s Death Star, entangling Skywalker, Leia, Obi-Wan and some very handy droids in a drama of astronomical proportions.

As the next selection in Hot Toys’s Movie Masterpiece Series, Vader bursts onto the scene in full 13-inch form. Naturally he is in 1/6 scale with film-accurate detail and craftsmanship, complete with his trademark breathing sounds and LED light action on his lightsaber and belt. He’s accompanied by an equally detailed Interrogator Droid and can be set up using the included figure stand.

Star Wars Black Series adds four new 6-inch figures

The Star Wars Black Series has been around since 2013, and since then it’s been the focus of acclaim and renown. Now, they’ve introduced some highly anticipated figurines into their lineup! Among them are Chewbacca from Episode Four, Darth Vader from Episode Five, Jedi Luke from Episode 6 and the Sandtrooper, classic character staples from the Star Wars franchise as a whole.

With the 3.75-inch line, the Series is venturing into the territory of obscure characters, and for now, they’re sticking with the more notable figures for 6-inch renderings. But we’re stoked to watch as they inevitably expand the roster further and further. Right now, Hasbro’s work on the sculpt and likeness of these four new additions is solid. Coming strapped with accessories seen in the movie, these figurines are about to be a big hit.

Jedi Luke is one of four new additions to the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch lineup.
