    Not really because even though he originated in the 70's, he i still in pop culture and TV shows, and lots of other stuff. Retro is when it was a big hit then and now it's like it never existed. So Darth ain't retro.

      I look at it this way Darth Vader is retro because he is from the 70s wich is a part of my childhood so i think that any thing from your childhood (eventhough it may have made a comeback ) is still retro

          So I guess The Simpsons aren't retro either cause they've always been on even though they had that huge merchandizing craze in the early 90's.

            I guess Lego vader is not retro but of course star wars and the vadar character is a retro icon, tough one really

              Ehh, he's semi retro. Since he's technically in Episode III, yet he was introduced in the 70s, he's kind of borderline retro.

                greater question: Is star wars (IV-V-VII)considered retro?

                obviously the prequels aren;t because jarjar and the prequels are shit.

                  So when the new Smurfs movie comes out, will they no longer be retro as well?

                          Darth Vader IS retro. So is the Star Wars Original Trilogy.

                          Why is this even a question? Ain't it obvious?

                              I guess Transformers and the Ninja Turtles aren't retro either, huh?

                                      Absolutely agree! Vader is retro without a doubt.
