What It Is
The Star Wars: Anakin to Darth Vader figure is a 12-inch, 2-in-1 electronic figure of Anakin Skywalker that can be easily changed to Darth Vader.
Why It’s Fun
This figure lets kids recreate Anakin Skywalker's transformation into Darth Vader. The figure starts off as Anakin and then by adding a few of Darth Vader's clothing pieces, he becomes Vader. There are several elements to this figure that make for a fun toy. One of those is the lightsaber that lights up when you press the button on the figure's shoulder. The color of the lightsaber automatically changes from Anakin's blue lightsaber to Vader's red lightsaber when the figure is wearing the Vader outfit. Also, both figures say lines from the movies as either Anakin or Vader and the figure automatically plays the noise from Star Wars: Episode 3, Revenge of the Sith, when Vader's helmet is sealed when you snap his helmet onto his head.
Who It’s For
This is a fun toy for young Star Wars fans. All of the pieces snap on easily so even little Padawans around the age of four should be able to change Anakin into Darth Vader on their own.
We don't know how excited older collectors will be by this figure because there is practically no articulation and if you look closely, you can see Anakin's hair under Vader's helmet.
What To Be Aware Of
This figure requires one AA battery. A demo battery is included but may need to be replaced when you get it and you need a screwdriver to replace the battery.
