Comments: This is the European version of this release, as evidenced by the small multilanguage sticker on the back.
Description: The sound of his mechanical breathing makes blood congeal on your veins. His shadow blankets a person, a starship, a planet… and when it passes, only death and destruction remain. His name has come to personify crushing power and remorseless cruelty, a name spoken with trepidation and fear. He is the Dark Lord of the Sith. He is… Darth Vader
Comments: This figure was packed with a coin book, a library to hold all of the 30th Anniversary Collection coins. The images show the figure with the coin book.
Description: Vader is obsessed with finding the young Rebel who destroyed the Death Star, believing him to the the offspring of Anakin Skywalker. Following up on a probe droid lead, Vader identifies the Rebel base on Hoth but arrives too late, as the last of the Rebels flee echo base.
Description: (from the back of the US card since the Canadian cardbacks were generic rather than character specific): Darth Vader has waited many years to confront his former master. But Obi-Wan has one last lesson for his former Padawan, the Force transcends time and space. As Vader witnesses Obi-Wan become one with the Force, his victory is bittersweet, for he is deprived of the satisfaction of seeing Kenobi’s lifeless body at his feet!
Species: Human, from the parched desert world of Tatooine
Status: The most powerful person in the Empire next to the Emperor
Weapon of Choice: Lightsaber and the power of the Force
Characteristics: Hungers for revenge on those who he feels betrayed him
Comments: This is the Canadian version of the US carded figure. Both the US and Canadian figures had a subset of 12 which had gold highlights on the card and a gold coin rather than a standard silver coin.
Description: This is was the final release of the Vintage line, and included a Collector’s Coin. This mold would be released only once more, in the 1995 POTF2 “Classic Edition” Excusive box set. We hope to run pictures of this later!

Description: This is the Canadian version of the Saga Legends Darth Vader. This appeared on at least four different generic multilingual cardbacks. Check back in a few weeks to see comparisons.
Description: While scouring the asteroid field for the Millennium Falcon, Darth Vader communicates with the Emperor via a hologram projection pod that transmits a flickering image of the sender. Vader coldly assures his Master that young Skywalker “will join us or die.”
Description: Darth Vader was not originally supposed to wear a facemask. Ralph McQuarrie’s concept drawing of Vader boarding the Tantive IV was based on the idea that Vader would fly through space to reach the ship, requiring him to wear a breathing apparatus. The facemask remained and has become a modern-day icon of chilling doom.
Artist Profile: The vivid imagination of conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie brought to life the characters and worlds envisioned by George Lucas. McQuarrie’s paintings and drawings were instrumental in the push to bring Lucas’s saga to the big screen, giving shape and form to a multitude of fantastic individuals, creatures, planets and technology encompassed in this epic tale. Developed in collaboration with McQuarrie himself, this remarkable action figure series pays tribute to the man whose art defined some of the most memorable characters in film history.
