Yeah, I sure didn't get the Jakks Pacific giant Vader either. Something a clueless Aunt would buy a kid to try to impress, but not a toy to be played with at the end of the day. But at least it is a perceived value...and the "shampoo bottle" figures fill the large cheap niche even better, and are manageable enough in size.You couldn't be more wrong. I grabbed a Jakks Vader for my son, and one for my nephew, clearance at Target. My son loves this toy and is playing with it constantly. He has saber duels with him, he chokes out the Jar Jar plush. He loves it.
