Darth Vader Unpainted Carbalon 4-up (258-003)
Showcased here is an unpainted Darth Vader 4-up. This particular pose, referred to as one of the beckoning poses, is designated by the number 258-003. The first three digits represent the Bespin Gantry playset, while the last three indicate the particular character/pose. While a large portion of 4-ups have surfaced in a green urethane referred to as dynacast, this one is part of a smaller number cast in a brown urethane called carbalon. Since far fewer carbalon 4-ups exist, I think it lends additional appeal to this specimen.
