Darth Vader may be an evil villain from Englands West Country (Dave Prowse is from Bristol) but I bet most kids wanted to pretend to be the Sith Lord whenever they played Light Sabre battles in the school playground. Of course, it wasn’t the same without the rasping breathing and cool black costume, but it was still fun.
If you are one of those 30-something kids who buy light sabres still using the excuse of being “a collector”, but really are waving it around with gusto when nobody is looking, then you might be interested in this cool Darth Vader T-Shirt! OK, you’ll still need to get the voice changing helmet and a cloak from somewhere but at least you’ll look a bit more the part next time you pretend to be old Mr. Skywalker.
Darth Vader not to your liking? OK, there are also Storm Trooper, Chewbacca and R2-D2 versions available. Thanks to my work mate James for bringing the website 80sTees.com to my attention. They’ve got loads of different T-Shirts and other clothing and goodies available, and whilst they are based in the US, they do deliver to the UK as well!
