This figure, like many before it, was first available from
Why should you get this figure? Five reasons:
1. The only ghost you get to own from the vintage line.
2. Re-create his action-packed smiling! The slight nod to Luke!
3. Change the scene a little: Luke: “Oh, so you guys can appear here too? Well, thanks for all the help everywhere else you bastards!”
4. Another thing you can put in the Ewok Village – besides Ewoks!
5. Those stylish robes!
For the full backstory on Anakin, check out my previous Darth Vader posting. It is interesting though, since the last change in the “Special Editions,” Hayden Christensen has replaced the previous actor as the ghostly Anakin. This change essentially means that this figure never existed. However, soon before this final Special Edition, a figure 3-pack of the Force ghosts, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Yoda were put out in the 1990’s line.
