Lots of products on show at the UK Toy Fair sported a new look featuring Darth Vader.  The Yoda packaging will be replaced at the end of July with the Darth Vader packaging below.  Most manufacturers will make the change, including Hasbro, but some others including LEGO will stay with the Yoda packaging throghout 2013.

Expect to see this new Darth Vader packaging from August onwards to tie into the 3D release of Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.  When looking through our UK Toy Fair galleries you’ll see products with both packaging designs.
