One of the most pivotal moments in the star wars saga is captured in gentle giant ltd.'s Darth Vader 'emperor's wrath' mini bust. As this point in the story we know Darth Vader is more machine than man, as he coldly brings his son before his master to be turned to the dark side of the force. Or die. After Luke denies the emperor his prize, the Sith lord formerly known as Darth Sidious turns his force lighting on our hero. Unable to stand by and watch his only son perish, lord Vader exhibits a father's love for the first time in his life to stop his child's suffering. Vader picks up the emperor and is engulfed in his force lighting. Just before casting his master into the void, Vader is pierced by the lighting and it illuminates his skeleton and shows us that he is still a man.
