Darth Vader Water Globe
« on: February 10, 2007, 04:58 PM »
I was visiting the Christmas Castle today (going out of business sale) and stumbled across a Darth Vader water globe.  The helmet comes off to reveal Anakin and Obi-Wan in a duel.   When turned on, vader's breathing comes on and the globe lights up from the inside and you can see Anakin and Obi-Wan dueling through the eyes in the mask.  It was an awesome find and I just wanted to share a few pictures with everyone.






*crap-images loaded way to big...I'm still trying to figure this out...I guess you have to scroll over a little to see the whole thing.*

I've heard of this water globe but these are by far the best pictures I've seen of it.  Thanks Beth!

Thanks for sharing; I haven't seen this before.  This is a cool neat little thing (although I don't know if I can call it little).  I did picked up the small version DV with Death Star snowball snowglobe last year.

Beth, can you tell me how much it was if you don't mind me asking?  I've wanted that, but not for the outrageous prices I've seen...  We don't have those stores around but I'm curious nonetheless.  That and the AT-AT Snowglobe are the two I'd most love to have in my collection. :(

The tag was for $60.00 but everything in the store was 35% off so, with tax, it came to $41.73.  I have no idea if that was outrageous or not.  It really is a fun piece.  To look through the eyes and see the duel as the light flickers on and off, along with the breathing....well, it's just too cool.

I've got the ANH and AT-AT globes I really want to pick this one up but havent been able to find it in the UK I had to buy the two I do have  from the starwars site and after import tax they cost more than I would have wanted to pay for them so don't want to import this one.
