In there was an interview with Lou Ferrigno. Nothing particularly noteworthy, except there was a shot of the actor holding what I though was the most amazing Hulk Action Figure I had ever seen …

Darth Vader (Light-Up Lightsaber)

Today I’m reviewing something that is, evidently, a novelty figure. However, even within the constraints imposed to this type of toys, I have to admit Hasbro did a really good job with this Darth Vader (MH20), released as part of the 2012 Movie Heroes line.
