Star Wars Original Trilogy References

Jedi Temple Achieves is reporting a rumor that one of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens action figures will be of an iconic character from the original trilogy:

“Of particular note, there is an EPISODE VII Darth Vader 3.75” 5POA figure. More on this soon! (That may just be the spoiler of the year!)”

But why is Darth Vader getting an Episode VII action figure? Does that mean that the Dark Sith Lord appears in the film? Possibly in the form of a flashback? Or maybe a new sith takes on his armor? Probably not.

We know from the second teaser that Darth Vader’s helmet is in the film, and toy lines do this kind of thing all the time — including characters and different variant armors that don’t appear in the film at all. Its all about selling toys. I wouldn’t read too much into it. If anything, it could be a flashback (which the live-action Star Wars series has never done before) showing Vader in a time before he perished.
