Our friends at Past Generation Toys provided us with a look at this ultra-rare item that any serious collector would love to have in their collection. This is the original wax sculpting for the Kenner POTF2 Dewback, only one exists and this is it.
Variation hunters rejoice/commit seppuku. Despite Hasbro’s insistence that running changes are too hard to manage, it appears that another switcheroo has been made in the kid targeted Saga Legends line. Joining Obi-Wan and the Battle Droids is Darth Vader (SL06) which now sports the “500th Vader” sculpt. Initial production runs of this Legends release included a repack of the TLC BD08 sculpt. Tap the image above for a closer look.
PROS: The definitive ROTS Anakin/Pre-Suit Vader. Takes the TAC version and gives it the arm articulation it deserved all along. New head sculpt is pretty sweet too.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
