Working together with HIROMOTO－SiN－ichi, the well-renowned artist of the STAR WARS comic series, we present to you the latest artist concept of The Ultimate Evil!
A “”Hiromoto-Vader”” based on Darth Vader™ from STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE™ rises and comes to life as a 1/7 scale ARTFX model-kit.
The statue features Vader’s eyes reimagined in the artist’s signature design letting off rage that could easily shake the galaxy as he stands over the empty robe of one-time Jedi master, teacher and friend, Obi-Wan Kenobi™.
Add this figure that has been newly designed to the minute details to your collection and appreciate his unique style!
The original illustrated artwork of The Ultimate Evil will be included as an art print.
