Obi-Wan Kenobi Toy Reveals Best Look at Darth Vader’s Damaged Face (Photos)


Obi Wan Kenobi is one of the biggest projects in recent Star Wars history. Sure, Boba Fett’s Book was notable, but nothing beats the reunion of Ewan McGregor’s Jedi Knight and Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader after more than a decade apart.

While the series has received mixed reception overall, these two are universally considered the best part of the whole show. After all, who doesn’t want more of the iconic Sith Lord in their life?

The last audience to see Darth Vader in the series, he had just been beaten by Kenobi and walked away with a broken mask to mark the occasion. The moment provided a neat little parallel to his duel with Ahsoka in Star Wars: Rebels and will undoubtedly be one of the show’s most memorable visuals.

Luckily, fans now have an even better way to capture the big moment. Hot Toys has just announced a highly detailed new figure of Darth Vader from the recent Disney+ series, and it looks stunning.

Darth Vader Damaged Hot Toy

Hot Toys has officially announced a new Darth Vader 1/6th scale figure by Hayden Christensen from the Disney+ series Obi Wan Kenobi.

Darth Vader’s costume is as stunning and iconic as ever. The Deluxe Edition comes exclusively with the complete, undamaged version of Vader’s helmet and chest panel.

The real standout aspect of both versions of this particular figure is that they will include the character’s damaged face from Episode 6.

The detail on display in the head sculpt is absolutely amazing and arguably some of the company’s finest work.

Obi Wan Kenobi got close to Anakin’s charred face, but many details were obscured by the harsh lighting and composition of the shot. With this Hot Toys figure, fans get the best look yet for all the macabre makeup work done on Hayden Christensen.

The depth between the mask and his face is showcased pretty well, and the melted plastic doesn’t look cheap, which it easily could.

Anakin’s bloodshot eyes are truly haunting as the mask allows one of them to step into the light.

Another promotional image for the figurine shows the Grand Inquisitor to Vader’s left.

Included will be a USB-powered LED lightsaber, a unique rock base, various lightsabers and hands, a damaged cape, and a damaged circuit board.

The Deluxe Edition will exclusively include an intact Vader helmet, a new interchangeable control panel and an alternate light base.

Vader’s Defeat Immortalized

The artistry on display for this figurine is absolutely stunning. It’s hard to imagine there are any Star Wars collectors who wouldn’t want this piece in their collections.

Even if we do not generally collect objects from the Obi Wan Kenobi series, this Vader figure could easily stand alongside alternate displays. For example, although the damage is on the wrong side, it could still pair well enough with the Ahsoka Hot Toy, both the clone wars Where The Mandalorian versions.

So what could the company get out of the show next? Reva is an easy guess given its importance, but it’s certainly not guaranteed.

Based on these promotional images above, the Hot Toys team has, at the very least, built a prototype for The Grand Inquisitor. But will it see the light of day?

Obi Wan Kenobi is now streaming on Disney+ in its entirety.
