Darth Vader Samurai Warrior Doll

Darth Vader as a samurai warrior. Hmmm, a strange mixing of metaphors, but it still fits. Trade the lightsaber for a sword, swap out the E-3778Q-1 mobile life support system and cape for ancient Japanese mobile life support armor and a jinbaori, and the helmet...well, the helmet can pretty much stay as is, given its similarity to a samurai's kabuto, and the fact that Vader couldn't possibly even be Bizarro Vader without it.

The Darth Vader Samurai Warrior Doll is made in the tradition of Japanese antique warrior dolls known as musha ningyo. This means he has pristine detailing spanning his regalia, from a kabuto affixed with the Empire crest to the artfully arced red sheath of his samurai sword, and an abnormally high price tag. Unique in appearance and meticulous in execution, Vader a la feudal Japan is certainly one for the Star Wars collectors. Statues are made of resin and aluminum and stands 20" x 14" x 10.6".
