A Fat Old Man: Darth Vader Unleashed Action Figure
I had never seen or heard of the Darth Vader Unleashed action figure until I stumbled across a mention at Candice Gilmer's blog, An Unpublished Author's Mind. I couldn't make out the photo, so I looked it up at Star Wars.com and was in awe. I always hated that shot in ROJ where Luke takes off the helmet and we discover the fearsome Darth Vader is just a fat old man. But that figure makes him look way cool. I gotta get that.
Check it out yourself:
Somebody at theforce.net has way too much time on his hands, trying to analyze and describe the injuries of Darth Vader. Oddly enough, it doesn't look like he updated it much with the new info from Revenge of the Sith, though. Guess he didn't have that much time on his hands.
NOTE: It turns out that Candace was referring to a different figure. Whereas I was referring to the Anakin Unleashed figure, she was referring to the Darth Vader Unleashed figure. Both good figures.
