I really do like these and the details on them. Darth Vader screams “The Devil Wears Prada” but it really fits here!  The price per doll is a bit high, but when I collected Barbie dolls back in the day, I saw much higher prices!

  1. From the thumbnail I didn’t think they worked, but then I saw the other images… wow. Those are actually really awesome and creative.

  2. Lucas seems to have let anyone have the toy rights to star wars after the kenner deal from the 80’s ended. Disney is keeping that going. Bandai Spirits has Feudal Japan versions of stormtroopers and Vader.
