I love toys and collectibles way more than I probably should, but an e-mail today had me wondering, how many people would actually spend $2,600.00 on what is basically a giant Kenner action figure?
Don't get me wrong, I have a soft spot in my heart for the original Kenner figures, but as far as spending money on the Jumbo line and now this lifesize version, I personally can't do it. There comes a point where my love of high quality sculpts trumps nostalgia.
However, we are all different and one Geeks's fantasy is another Geek's horror, so here is the link if you want to splash some cash ... Life Size Darth Vader ... save some space and room though, Disciples of the Dark Side, there is also a lifesize Stormtrooper, you'll need a pair of those to flank Lord Vader.
Defenders of the Force need not despair, R2-D2 was available for a more reasonable $1200.00 according to Gentle Giant's website, although it is selling for much more on the aftermarket, but of course, this was not modelled off of a Kenner figure.
