Pre-orders for the Bandai Movie Realization Samurai Darth Vader figure begin September 1 in Japan.
The Bandai Movie Realization Samurai Darth Vader figure, inspired by artist Takayuki Takeya, incorporates the traditional Japanese samurai style with iconic Star Wars armor to create a hybrid warrior. Standing at 180 millimeters–slightly over 7 inches–the Samurai Darth Vader figure is hyper-articulated and includes three pairs of interchangeable hands, a lightsaber with a blade shaped like a samurai sword, as well as an unlit lightsaber hilt.
The Bandai Movie Realization Samurai Darth Vader is priced at ¥9,504 (about $92) and is scheduled for a December release. Unfortunately for U.S. collectors, this figure will not be offered by domestic retailers due to licensing limitations and you’ll need to import the figure from Japan if you’re interested in purchasing it.
