Black Friday and the Knight of Darkness!
But no more, not for me. I do 90% of my Christmas shopping online and the rest at Walgreens on Christmas Eve. It's a simple plan that works.
Well, my aunt found this guy, the Knight of Darkness-- essentially a more art deco styled Darth Vader-- and I thought it was the coolest. He's still on my shelf in my studio.
I know what some of you were thinking-- he's just a lame ripoff of Darth Vader. Well, Star Wars creator George Lucas thought so too and sued Ideal Toys when this came out-- but the case was tossed out of court when it was revealed that the figure was actually a re-purposed Captain Action from the 1960s. The Knight defeated Darth Vader.
Which makes him the coolest figure.
