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.
