Funko has unveiled the third figure in its new line of Star Wars Hikari vinyl figures, and it’s the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader! Is it me or is Vader’s head almost as big as his entire torso!?! That being said, this “Lightning” Darth Vader Hikari looks pretty sweet! It is cast in black soft Japanese vinyl (cast in China) and features ice-blue spray. This Star Wars line will soon be expanded to include Hikari figures of C-3PO, Bossk, a Clone Trooper, a Stormtrooper, and the vicious Wampa.
Hikari, meaning “light”, is a highly collectible line of clear/translucent figures cast in soft Japanese vinyl. Each “Lightning” Darth Vader Premium Hikari vinyl figure stands 8” tall, includes a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and comes packaged in a full color window box perfect for display. Limited to 1,500 pieces, this Star Wars Hikari vinyl figure is not expected to hit store shelves until April 2015, but you can pre-order one now at Entertainment Earth for $79.99 here.
