The Dark Lord of the Sith made his debut in George Lucas’ first feature film 'Star Wars: A New Hope' as a menacing villain with a mission to destroy the Rebel Alliance. A former Jedi trainee and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s apprentice, Anakin Skywalker was remade into Darth Vader after falling to the evil of his master, Darth Sidious, with cybernetic parts, armor, longer limbs, and a intimidating mask.

The character was portrayed slightly differently in each of the seven Star Wars films, and his menacing stature has been the subject of hundreds of passionate fan debates. The tattooine native is often pictured towering over other characters, making him a fearsome and formidable presence in the galaxy.

So how tall is darth vader?

The actor that played the iconic villain in the original trilogy of Star Wars, David Prowse, was 6 ft 6 in. This was the height that the director wanted him to be. He is also the same height as his co-star, Hayden Christensen, who played the short-lived Jedi Anakin Skywalker.

Despite being shorter than his son Luke, Anakin was far taller than Padme, who is said to be around 5 ft 9. The character of Han Solo in the prequels is supposed to take after his sister and be about the same height as Padme. Jeremy Bulloch who was in the clone troopers and Temuera Morrison who played Jango Fett are both 6 feet 1.

This Life Size Darth Vader is the ultimate in Star Wars collectibles and would make a stunning addition to any home cinema, screening room, memorabilia display or collector's cave. This highly detailed, museum quality piece is meticulously reproduced in 1:1 scale, from the sculpting of his armor to the light-up chest plate and lightsabers, and every detail has been carefully considered.
