Anakin Skywalker was a great Jedi Knight, who fought for the Republic before the Dark Times. His decent into darkness was brought on by the evil Darth Sidious, who would go on to convert Skywalker to the Dark Side. When that happened, Darth Sidious crowned himself Emperor, and named Skywalker 'Darth Vader, Lord of the Sith.' Sculpted by Gentle Giant's master artisans, this Darth Vader statue recreates a scene from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, as Lord Vader bows in devotion to the Emperor. Each limited edition hand painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching Certificate of Authenticity.
