LULS Darth Vader Returns

Postby Staff » Tue Aug 24, 2010 11:16 am

Sort of.


Vader display at Target


Spotted at his local Target, Jared Burks (Fine Clonier) of Fineclonier.com fame spotted this Light Up Lightsaber Maxifigure of Darth Vader. Not only does it light up, it moves! Apparently, there was no sound as is customary with LEGO display cases, and if there was it wasn't very loud, at least with this unit. Jared also adds, "Helmet looked a bit cheap like a blow mold instead of solid plastic, but who cares". Who cares indeed.

Yeah my Target had one too (as I suspect they all do or will at some point). It's really cool IMHO. I rocked it back and forth to see how secure it was and I gotta tell you that the one I was playing with wasn't going ANYWHERE without some tools. Oh well... :)

My friends and I do that with all the displays, must be just some deep set instinct we have... But yeah, they use some pretty strong glue like over the whole thing. Even the Hero Factory guys' hands were glued in place so I couldn't make their swords slash about.

Um, OK? Cute, but why does this need to be front paged? :roll:

Um, because it's LEGO Star Wars and this is a LEGO Star Wars blog site?

It's not that cool, though. I hope we're not going back to the point when random comics with the word lego in the get front paged again. :lol:

Is there anyway to buy this Darth Vader? My son has seen this display at Target and has asked Santa for it for Christmas. I talked to Target and 2xs I've been told it's promotional ONLY and it doesn't belong to Target and they have no way of selling it. I went to the Lego store here and they said it's not Lego property it's Lucasarts and unless you're friend with Stephen Spielburg no one can get one. I NEED THIS TOY!!!!! Any suggestions on how to get it????
