Has anyone else noticed that Emperor's Wrath Darth Vader's skull actually glows-in-the-dark when exposed to light. The lightning bolts even look more impressive in the dark!

I've had this fig for a while and I can honestly say I had never noticed that the skull glows...so I grabbed mine, stuck it in the light, and then ran to a dark place. It's kinda faint- but they skull does glow in the dark!

The skull most certainly glows... I put a pen light up to the side of it for about a minute and that sucker is big old "radiation" green!!!

I love it!!!!

Not too bad for a hunk of petroleum product! ;)

I guess I must have the ultra-rare non-glowing EWDV. I haven't been able to get it to glow even slightly. Oh well, it'll still make a great door stop.

Yeah it does glow!! I almost melted the plastic around my Vader (never take them out of the package!) by placing him above my lamp!

Its a really cool fig!

That is just TOO cool.:D It's a very faint glow but It's definitely coming from the head inside the helmet

Thanks for the info.

Mine isn't faint, it glows fine. It's not blinding, but it's a glow-in-the-dark toy, if you've had others, you should know what to expect here. Only 20 seconds under the lamp and it is quite viewable. The face seems set a bit too far back, but that's minor. Don't waste your time trying to get it to glow in the packaging, it's nowhere near as good as loose.

Mine glows...a little bit, not blinding though, like JediTricks said.

I love this toy.

It's taken me a while to get this figure (been almost 2 months since I've gone looking), and now I find out he has "secret" features? Next you're gonna say his right hand is removable!
;)
P.S. According to the Force File, one of Vader's allies is R2-Q9. Imagine that...

Vader: "I must obey my master. You don't know the power of the Dark Side." (Luke is taken away by guards. Small black droid enters. Vader kneels.) "My master."
R2-Q9: "Beep boop bop beep."
Vader: "It shall be done." :rolleyes:

This is seriously without a doubt one of the coolest toys ever. By far my favorite POTJ fig tied with 300th Fett. What a cool concept for a figure.

Next I want to see an Emperor's Wrath Luke, now that would be cool too.

As far as an Emperor's Wrath Luke goes, wasn't the Electronic F/X line a disaster? :D They could use the Buck-Toothed Luke head sculpt and add a glow-in-the-dark paint to make his teeth glow!

P.S. I'll bet Luke was hoping for rolling blackouts when Paplatine was "flexing his power" with those force lightning bolts! (California power supply problems inside joke)

It would have the blue boomer crud that came with the battle droid :)
