I found the Holo Emperor at my TRU today, like Brent mentioned they rang up at $7.99 then add my little tax of 7% so a total of $8.55 CDN or $7.26 US.  ;D   :-*

I picked up 6 of him.  ;D

Saw some holo emperors today.  Left them hanging.

I think this one ranks up there with the Lava Vader as worst exclusive ever.

I kind of like this one, though it's a little unnecessary if you have a holo Sidious.


I think the new Lava Reflection Obi-Wan and Anakin and the Holiday Vader join the Lava Vader as worst exclusives ever.

Well I wasnt able to purchase the Holo Emperor outright like I did the Holo Yoda. So I didn't get one cause I have everything and dont need extras of any of the beat up crap they sell.

I hate it when I do this:

Saw them online last night, bought 2.  Saw them today at 1PM, bought 2.  Used my smart phone to log on to the amazon.com website and it was too late (already in process for shipping and can't cancel).  Grrrrr >:(  Now I have 2 and 2 more on the way!  I opened one and it's not that great.  I guess I got caught up in the excitement.   :(  Fortunately I got a gift receipt so I can take them back but I get stuck with the shipping...

How come? Unlike a lot of those others (Lava figures etc.) it's not just some crappy paintjob Hasbro cooked up to jack up the price. It's a representation of something that actually appears onscreen in the film.

True, he's already been done in EpI Holo Sidious and SWShop ESB Emperor, but neither one was what you'd call widely and readily available. Sure, this newest one has a promo attached, but something tells me he won't be half as hard to get ahold of as the first two.

I guess I just don't like the sculpt it's based off of. That's all. :P

Yeah, of all the very recent exclusives, he makes the most sense.  Lava this and Covert Clone that are really bonkers compared to figs actually in the film.  I'm not too hip on him, though, only because I have the Holo Sidious, and he's still tops in my book.

I like the holo Sideous the best as well.  I think it's the way the Darth Sideous figure's cloak is sculpted (very nicely).  I lucked out and found the holo sideous way back when and It's one of my favorite figures...kind of creepy and evil with a nice texture to it that makes the holo effect seem less cheap.

What adds more fuel to the fire is the fact that the lightsaber and force ball are included as well. 

I still haven't caved in on this one even though I have all the other lame ass ROTS exclusives.....

I kinda like this one.  The hood is removable so you can differentiate it from the Ep I version, at least a bit.  I didn't like the regular figure so much, but this is ok by me.  I can pretend it's all EU-y and some soon to be dead Jedi are watching a hologram of Sidious ambling around with a light saber.

With our TRU sale up here, the Holo Emperor which was $7.99 with tax at $8.55 CDN or $7.26 US, rang through at $3.97 with tax at $4.25 CDN or $3.58 US. Ya can't beat that deal!  8)
