VINTAGE SUPER-ARTICULATED EPISODE III DARTH VADER - QUICK CUSTOM

Parental Supervision Required. Take the upper torso of the Young Anakin Darth Vader from that Target 2 pack and swap it with the Vintage Darth Vader with the ball jointed hips and call it a day.  I boiled both figures in hot water and then when the plastic the figures are made of got soft enough I swapped the torsos switching out the lower fabric as well.  Figures will be hot and you can definitely burn yourself.  I advise letting the excess water completely drain off the soft goods before attempting to touch the figure even with your oven mitts on.  

I like this project because it takes only a few minutes to create.  I need to grab one more of the Vintage Vaders so I can do an Episode VI removable helmet Vader with ball jointed hips and the Sebastian Shaw likeness.
