Star Wars Darth Vader Electronic Talking Bank

continued from previous post...

"Impressive, most impressive... but you are not a Jedi yet!"

Darth Vader is a Dark Lord of the Sith responsible for wiping out the Jedi and executing the Emperor's evil bidding. Determined to hunt down and extinguish the Rebel Alliance, Vader commands the massive Imperial fleet and rules his forces through unquestionable terror.

This is the 1996 released Thinkway Toys Star Wars Darth Vader Electronic Talking Bank. After getting the Star Wars Electronic C-3PO and R2-D2 Talking Bank, this was the next thing on the list. The Star Wars Darth Vader Electronic Talking Bank features original voice and music from the Star Wars soundtrackand includes waving lightsaber with light and sound! There is the Star Wars evil Empire theme followed by Darth Vader talking as he raises and lowers his light saber when you activate the bank.

Box packaging with a "Try Me" button which is the "Star Wars" logo

When activated, Darth Vader's light saber lights up as he raises it. The lights on his chest and belt light up as well, along with the Star Wars music soundtrack and dialogue
