Don't most of us already have like 60 of these red royal guards?

It's not even cloth or anything!

Medicom has never released a single figure by itself that wasn't carded. My guess would be it is a placeholder for something that wasn't ready yet, like maybe a 400% version. That would still be lame, but slightly less so.

The cloth cloak would have been a lot more interesting - good suggestion.

I'd bet money that the guard is going to be a carded release. When is another issue.

From memory the silver TC-14 and the Shadow Stormtrooper amongst others, were shown at the Parco show before release uncarded.

I'm betting this is a  ROTJ carded figure. 400% would be cool to but with a cloth cape...
