For those not in the know, Mighty Muggs is Hasbro’s stab at the designer vinyl without the price tag and pretension. Their motto is “Made from 100% recycled awesome.” We are still not sure what the awesome originally was before the recycling process but I think with enough journalistic detective work we will get to the bottom of that particular mystery. But solving that mystery is not within the scope of today’s article.
Today I am showing you my latest addition to my cuddly “Villains Gallery” that I started with Mola Ram, Darth Vader!
He stands about 7 inches tall and is made of soft vinyl. Vader features 3 points of articulation. His head and arms turn, that’s about it.
The paint application is pretty good, but in true mass-produced fashion, there is a paint smudge on my Vader’s chest plate. It’s not really noticeable on the shelf but in these pictures, I think it stands out.
The helmet comes off and there’s an old Anakin under the mask!
But wait that’s not all! His hand is removable!
Mighty Muggs’ Darth Vader is just plain awesome. I may have scoffed at the Mighty Muggs concept when we first saw it at Toyfair 08 but I am certainly won over at this point. For $11.99 it’s hard to go wrong.
