While scanning through this years' Comic-Con exclusives, I came across this wonderful find.
A PINK Darth Vader bust created by Gentle Giant Studios, with permission from Lucasfilms, with 10% of each sale going to the Susan G.Komen organization in an effort to find a cure for breast cancer! Looks like Darth is leaving the Dark Side for a worthy cause.
The Pink Darth Vader bust, shown above, is limited to a production of 1,644, stands 8" tall and will ONLY be available at SDCC.
For every pink Darth Vader helmet sold from July 1 - July 26, 2009, Gentle Giant Ltd. will donate 10% of the retail sales price to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® with a minimum guaranteed donation of $5,000, in support of Komen's promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. This donation will go towards research as well as education in hopes that a cure can be found.
This item is currently available for pre-order and pick up in person with valid ID, only at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2009. In other words, if you're not going to Comic-Con July 23-26, you cannot order it. If you have any questions please contact customer service @ 818.504.3555 for assistance
