December 24 – Darth Vader

The re-moulded mask for Darth Vader is pretty spot on, particularly given that it comes in two parts, with an awesome face printing for Anakin Skywalker too.

However, there are a couple of issues when it comes to how it sits on a minifigure torso, namely size and angle. Even for LEGO, it appears to be a little too big when compared with the minifigure torso and legs, whilst the angle that it is at is also frustratingly off – he’s constantly looking up.

This build looks to rectify both those issues with a more flexible brick built body, offering that little extra menace to his appearance. His height difference to Luke has been matched as accurately as possible to how it was in Return of the Jedi.

Rob Paton

As one half of Tiro Media Ltd, I mix a passion for print and digital media production with a deep love of LEGO and can often be found on these pages eulogising about LEGO Batman, digging deeper into the LEGO Group’s inner workings, or just complaining about the price of the latest LEGO Star Wars set. Make a great impression when you meet me in person by praising EXO-FORCE as the greatest LEGO theme of all time. Follow me on Twitter @RobPaton or drop me an email at [email protected]
