The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the Samurai Taisho Darth Vader figure from Bandai/Tamashii Nation.
PROS: The minute I saw this figure previewed back in June 2014, I knew I had to have it and now that it has arrived, it’s probably my favorite collector item of 2014. The samurai armor has been beautifully merged with the Star Wars aesthetic and the result is an amazing sculpt with ornate details and paint work. The articulation is nearly perfect, allowing collectors to set a wide range of realistic display possibilities and intimidating postures. Accessories are plentiful with 3 additional pairs of hands for gesturing or holding the included katana-like lightsaber and/or hilt.
CONS: Admittedly the style isn’t for everyone, nor is the premium price for essentially a 6″ scale figure.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

Big Bad Toy Store is now taking preorders for Bandai’s Movie Realization Stormtrooper Foot Soldier. If you’re on the fence about this figure, you might want to get on this early as the Darth Vader version sold out very quickly.
