Ever wanted your own personal Sith Lord to do thy bidding? Need an astromech droid to record your day-to-day dalliances for the Galactic Empire? Both of those things can be hard to track down, but lucky for you, we just so happen to be giving those exact things away.
That's right, you can take home your very own R2-Q5 Imperial Astromech Droid and Return of the Jedi Darth Vader sixth-scale figures just because we like you. Sure this Darth Vader won't actually be able to Force Choke anyone that's giving you the business, but you can pretend he is. That's close enough, right?

Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month in Marvel's December solicitations certain characters slip into something a little more comfortable, a modern romance is revisited, and there's a mysterious new Star Wars ongoing.
Sideshow Collectibles has long been providing the collecting world with sixth-scale figures based on Star Wars. In fact, until Hot Toys jumped on the bandwagon ahead of The Force Awakens, Sideshow was pretty much the only place you could find high-end figures based on George Lucas’ creation. Still, in all that time, there haven’t been a tremendous amount of these figures released, with Sideshow carefully curating its collection with some unexpected choices.
Of course, you can’t have the Star Wars license without putting your own spin on the Sith Lord Darth Vader. As one of the most recognizable entities from the saga, Vader is a prime choice for an action figure. In fact, he’s such a marquee character, it’s the second time Sideshow’s released a figure for him. However, there are plenty of improvements with this revamped edition of Sideshow’s previous Return of the Jedi Darth Vader to make it more than a simple repeat viewing.
Droids are the unsung heroes of the Star Wars universe, and that holds true in the toy department too. Though the bigger droids of the franchise have been honored numerous times throughout the years, but those that have only appeared a few times across the saga haven’t had quite as much figural success. Yeah, you’ve got your GNK droids and your interrogation droids, but it’s rare these days for any true Imperial droids to get any play.
Where at least the droids that pal around with the Rebel Alliance have had some adventures beyond the 1/12 scale, it’s rarified air for anyone that doesn’t know a Skywalker personally to get any love --- particularly at sixth-scale. Sideshow Collectibles appreciates the little guy, and with the release of the R2-Q5 has finally given the 1/6 bad guys a droid all their own.
We don’t yet know if future Star Wars movies will deepen our understanding of the Force any, but Star Wars Rebels Season 3 definitely aims to make things … well, bigger. A new Season 3 clip introduces the mysteriously neutral Force entity “The Bendu,” voiced by none other than Doctor Who star Tom Baker.
Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca's Darth Vader series has stretched the bounds of what was thought possible with a villain-centric comic, and perhaps most impressively of all, it managed to cohesively link the Vader of the prequels with the Vader of the original trilogy in a convincing and compelling fashion.
Over the past two years, the creators have taken Vader on a perilous journey into becoming his own man and learning to slowly defy the Emperor, and in December's Darth Vader #25 everything comes to its epic conclusion. Marvel has sent out an unlettered preview featuring Vader, Aphra, and of course Emperor Palpatine, to whet our appetites ahead of the finale.
The closer we get to Star Wars Rebels Season 3's September premiere, the more all sides of the franchise start to converge. It’s Prequel Trilogy meets Original Trilogy meets Expanded Universe, as the latest Rebels Season 3 trailer brings Y-Wings, Destroyers and Thrawn, oh my!
If that barn-burner finale or a sinister new look didn’t make it abundantly clear, Star Wars Rebels Season 3 has Ezra moving closer to the dark side than ever. So it is with the latest clip from Season 3, as even Darth Vader would find Ezra’s use of the Force was downright cold.
It’s hard to imagine anyone providing Star Wars Rebels with more menace than James Earl Jones’ Darth Vader, but Lars Mikkelsen’s Grand Admiral Thrawn may just give him a run for his money. A new promo for Season 3 sees Thrawn poised to tear the team apart, utilizing his terrifying skill as a tactician.
