Check it out!

The throne environment will be sold separately, but looks pretty cool.  I'm expecting it to look very similar the Thrawn's command chair.

Pre-order is Friday 18 December.

Wow, that is nice.  The chair is a nice touch.  Way out of my price range though.   :P

This is a must have!  Especially since I'm only getting the Jedi & the Sith from Sideshow's 12" line.  And that reminds me, I still haven't gotten the Vader 12" figure yet.

Looks great.  Since I want the throne and he'll be sitting anyways, I'm just going to get the regular version.  Hopefully he comes with his cane and it's just not shown in the pics.  I have a **** ton of reward points available, so I'll be using those on this bad boy.

Well I really want the exclusive and the chair, but Jesus that's a lot of mula to fork over.  Why in the hell is the Emperor $90.00 to $94.99?  I know they are a small company and all that jazz but come on that is more than an armored figure.  But damn it looks good!

I really do love the way this figure looks and there is something iconic about seeing him sitting there with Vader standing next to him.  However, I just can't convince myself to spend that kind of scratch today.  I guess this is a regretable pass.

I think I might pick up the chair and hope to acquire Palpatine cheaper later.

The site was a little slow but I got my order in.  Thankfully they're offering the flex pay on the throne.

I ordered the Ex. and the chair... but I will more than likely pass on this. That's a lot of money.
