Gentle Giant Ltd. is back as they announce a brand new Jumbo Kenner Star Wars figure for their collection. This is not the first time we have seen Jumbo Kenner figures, but this is the first time we are receiving retro concept art, Darth Vader. That is right, the legacy of the Ralph McQuarrie designs live on, and Gentle Giant has captured the magic in retro Kenner style. Coming in at 12 inches tall, this concept art Darth Vader features a new concept-inspired head sculpt as well as a new black and blue deco. The figure will also have classic features like the iconic vinyl cape, retractable blue lightsaber and will come in blister card packaging.
This is a must have collectible for any Star Wars fan as it brings something new and old all together in one. It would have been a true wonder to see Ralph McQuarrie's concept designs come to life back in the late 70s with Kenner. However, Gentle Giant Ltd. is making this a dream come true, and fans can find the dark lord here for $80. Fans can also snag one up at their local comic shop in September 2021, so be sure not to miss out on adding Concept Darth Vader to your growing collection.
