I purchased this as a gift for the Vader fan in my life and he absolutely loved it.

From Ralph McQuarrie prints and sketches, to behind-the-scenes pictures of the actors and Vader promotional shoots, there is a lot to enjoy.

Authors Ryder Windham and Pete Vilmur did a great job of keeping the book fun to read and avoiding a dry historical account.

Who will ever forget the first time they saw Darth Vader. Having grown up in the 70's as a child, Star Wars was the ultimate movie experience, and Vader was the ultimate villain. I was lucky enough to pre-order this book and receive the slipcased version of this hardcover masterpiece!!!

Once you get a hand on this book its almost impossible to put it down... the pictures that illustrate the souns are fantastic and the binding for such a large book is impressive!!! If you love Star Wars, you will love this book!

This hardcover book is full of interesting facts and information on this hated enemy of the Rebel alliance. This is a must have collectable and rare find of a book!!! If you can afford a copy, snag one of these! You won't regret it!!!!

The Complete Vader is a great read for any Star Wars fan. Authors Ryder Windham and Pete Vilmur did a great job of keeping the book fun to read and avoiding a dry historical account. The book has lots of fun facts about Vader and Star Wars. Yet there is a lot more to the book than the story when you take into account the tons of beautiful artwork and photos that are included. From Ralph McQuarrie prints and sketches, to behind-the-scenes pictures of the actors and Vader promotional shoots, there is a lot to enjoy. For collectors, a lot of Vader merchandise is also covered. On top of it all, there's also a lot of fun interactive elements such as fold out pictures, hidden pockets with loose articles, and even copies of film cells. Definitely a book that's worth the money.

I purchased this as a gift and immediately wanted to take it for myself. Full color illustrations and sketches portray the development of the greatest movie villain of all time. Long term exposure to this tome might cause side effects such as: attempting to Force-Choke people in traffic, wearing capes, and finding others' lack of faith disturbing. A great book.

when i saw this book on here, my jaw dropped and i had to have it. waited by the door and it finally came. it is a big book, nice hardcover with vader from front to back. just amazing pictures and details of how vader was born and up til today. the concept photos and background of how he began is amazing. totally changes your outlook on star wars as a whole. plus amazing extras such as hand written script of luke i am your father scene, pop out posters, just too many extras to write down. if you love star wars and the dark lord then you must have this. who cares what the price is, just click order and wait by the door til it comes. thank you for your time and may the force be with you.......

My husband is a huge Star Wars fan, and I go this for him as a present. He LOVED it! It really has some great information about the character of Darth Vader, the toys that were made, some copies of original script, and tons more. A great purchase for a Star Wars/ Darth Vader fan of any age.

I didn't think I would like "The Complete Vader" and never intended to buy it until I browsed it in the bookstore. It is not what I expected. There are replica posters, stickers, and script pages throughout. It reminds me of the "Star Wars Vault," though less extensive.

The story of Vader includes his initial incarnations, the evolultion of his character, and the casting and development of the young Anakin. It even includes the backstory behind the ostracization of David Prowse. Until now, I've only read innuendos.

Included are details about merchandising and toys, but that did not interest me nearly as much as the photos, inserts, and Vader's story itself.

This is a book that is sure to please the adult Star Wars fan. I am happy to add it to my collection.

As far as fun books go about Star Wars, count this as one. Though the price is not cheap, there are myriad details, inserts, unfolding pages and pictures that add a lot of flavor to this book on Darth Vader. The book goes into some substantial detail about the popular cultural reception of Darth Vader, the vast amount of Vader-inspire products, toys, serials, and toys. It is a large coffee-table book, that should be good for a great deal of fun and reflection.
