Galactic Hunter is proud to bring you our first preview of the new Revenge of the Sith action figures. Hasbro launches a bold new packaging design aimed to capture attention in the aisles and let the world know that Vader's back and hotter than ever (pardon our lousy pun). Since Episode 3 is all about the Sith, we'll start things off with the villain Anakin Skywalker is destined to be, Darth Vader (#11).

Hasbro reintroduces action features and the Collection 1 category for ROTS. As you probably already know, Hasbro designated Collection 1 as the assortment aimed primarily for kids. Thus the action feature along with more pose specific articulation and dynamic stances. Consequently, Collection 2 will have figures and features (i.e. enhanced articulation) targeted more towards collectors. This ROTS version of Vader includes a "Lightsaber Attack!" feature,  which is activated by squeezing the figure's legs together causing his right arm to swing his lightsaber in a downward motion. The all new sculpt with soft goods cloak and skirt is representative of his "reappearance" in ROTS. The figure sports additional articulation in both wrist as well as a ball jointed left shoulder.
