1/12 Darth Vader English Manual & Color Guide

1/12 Darth Vader Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released last year by Bandai for their Starwars line is the 1/12 Darth Vader. Built with the usual Bandai attention to detail and technological advances in injection mold casting, this is truly a specimen worth beholding. How's that for a PT Barnum impression? *snicker* But seriously this looks like a great kit, and with the current Bandai plastic kits released you know that you'll always get a well crafted product.

The 1/12 Darth Vader from Bandai is selling for $25.00 at Amazon.

1/12 Darth Vader Construction Manual & Color Guide

Construction Manual & Color Guide was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site.
