Behold the awesomeness that is Bandai’s new “Samurai Taisho Darth Vader” action figure. Designed by Takayuki Takeya, this impressive figure was recently unveiled at the International Tokyo Toy Show 2014. Standing 7.8 inches tall, the design seamlessly “fuses the aesthetics of feudal Japan and imperial galaxy far, far away.” Look closely and you’ll noticed that Vader’s samurai armor features the emblem of the Galactic Empire in place of a Japanese family crest or kamon.
Also known as “Movie Realization Samurai General Darth Vader,” this fantastic action figure is set to be released in Japan during winter 2014. All of our fingers and toes are crossed in hope that it’ll be released worldwide later on.
