This is one of my relatively older custom action figures (created in 2004) The goal here was to create a richly-detailed 4 inch-scale action figure of Anakin Skywalker as the powerful fallen Jedi Knight that he ultimately became. The first thing I decided was that ALL of his robes and cape were to be made of soft goods. Also, I wanted this custom action figure to be able to unmask with the correct THREE stages of head gear (rather than Hasbro’s typical two at the time.) Most importantly, I wanted a custom action figure that just looked elegant and STATELY when standing neutrally at ease. As always, custom Vader had to be correctly scaled in relation to the rest of the STAR WARS action figures in my collection (including other Customs).

“If you only knew the power of the Dark Side!”

Thanks for the nice words, guys. The tiny circuitry details on his chest panel and belt boxes was a challenge. But in the end, only about 50% of it was hand painted by me. The rest of it I rendered in an illustrator program and printed out as water transferable slide decals. The three "coin slot" switches with the red lights in them (on the chest plate), and the sets of six outer buttons (on each belt box unit, were decals.

Dude... the paintjob on the electronics alone is outrageously awesome, but the paintjob on his face just says "I will consume your soul" Awesome job bud!
