This Darth Vader Throne Statue Will Force Choke Your Wallet


Iron Studios’ quarter-scale replica of Darth Vader sitting on his throne can now be pre-ordered, but for a non-refundable deposit and pricy cost.

Star Wars fans can now pre-order Iron Studios’ 1/4 replica of Darth Vader sitting on his throne, a fine addition to their collection — if they have the credits.

Though the Sith fortress was introduced in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ brought the throne room of Darth Vader’s Mustafar castle into live-action. Inspired by the Star Wars show, Iron Studios has created a scaled-down statue of the Sith Lord sitting on his throne, one that is 18.9 inches tall, 31.9 inches wide, 29.1 inches deep and weighs 33 pounds. However, for fans looking to pre-order this collectible, they will be required to make a $200 non-refundable deposit and must agree to pay the rest of the statue’s $999.99 price tag later on. The statue is expected to ship in the third quarter of 2023.

Details for the Darth Vader Statue and What’s Not Included

On the webpage to pre-order, Iron Studios has provided several photos of different angles and close-ups for the statue, showing its immense detail, such as the textures of Vader’s different costume pieces and the throne itself. There is a disclaimer present that the “product may vary” from what is shown, which also goes for an image imagining how the statue’s size will compare to a person about 5.7 feet tall. In that picture, the collectible stretches from the person’s shoulder to their waist, and is capable of covering their entire torso.

Regardless of its $999.99 cost, the statue does not capture the full scope of Darth Vader’s throne room. Iron Studios shares one photo imaging the item with a Mustafar backdrop and other elements from the room, but the collectible is limited to just the character placed on the throne. Based on the details given, it does not seem as if Vader can be positioned differently in the throne, nor is his holotable included. This table is seen in Kenobi and allows Vader to speak to holograms of others from his throne, such as Emperoror Palpatine.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Hasn’t Been Renewed on Disney+

As for Obi-Wan Kenobi, the show’s first season ran for six episodes between May and June 2022, and it has not been greenlit for another despite star Ewan McGregor interested in reprising his role further. Set after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005) and prior to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977), the show forced McGregor’s titular Jedi out of hiding to rescue a young Princess Leia Organa (Vivien Lyra Blair), placing him in the crosshairs of Jedi-hunting Inquisitors and Vader, his former Padawan and friend. Actor Hayden Christensen reprised his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader from the Star Wars prequel trilogy for the series, while James Earl Jones’ voice for Darth Vader was recreated using artificial intelligence.

The first season of Obi-Wan Kenobi is now available to stream on Disney+.
