Darth Vader even ponders like a badass in this unbelievable new statue

The newest entry in Sideshow's awesome Star Wars Mythos statue line is Darth Vader. While he's had more than his fair character of statues made of him already, I think you'll agree that this new one is particularly interesting as it is outrageously badass. As Sideshow describes:

For our Star Wars Mythos version of Darth Vader we chose a moment in time between the trilogies, where he has returned to his symbolic birthplace on Mustafar for a moment of deep reflection on his choices. He is caught in a pose reminiscent of Shakespearean introspect, Hamlet-esque with an ‘alas poor Yorick' view of his helmet. Somewhere deep inside the man who was once Anakin Skywalker a deep torment foments as he contemplates the partial machine he has become. Whether his thoughts waver toward this new reality being a tragedy or a triumph is a matter left up to the viewers' imagination.

Well, seeing as he's looking at his own helmet and thus is thinking "Alas, poor me" I say it's probably tragedy, but I'll allow it. The statue comes with an alternate helmeted head and various arms, to allow Vader to clench his fist in anger or wield his lightsaber — although his badass levels remain maxed in each position. You can pre-order the statue at Sideshow's website here for $350 — but I wouldn't wait too long if I were you.
