You know him, and you love him... The TRUE star of Episode III... The one, the only... Palpatine (Lightsaber Attack)
OK, yeah that intro was a bit much... I dig the old coot though, and thought he was the highlight of Revenge of the Sith. Unfortunately though, it looks like I'm gonna be waiting a while for a red-robed Palpatine that I really can dig.
This figure's static, "salt-shaker" sculpt and his unfortunate habit of falling over are just kind of disappointing. This is one Hasbro may not be itnerested in touching though, as what I want is a nicely articulated Palpatine (ala his early ROTS figure in his robes he wore on Grievous' ship), with maybe some cool shiney softgoods robes... Something that can kick some Jedi ass, hold a saber, and maybe features these interchangeable head/hands that this Palpatine has?
I'd dig seeing those, as they're a great feature for the character.
By all means though, Read the Full Review Right Here

This figure's just not one I was real big on after I got him home and opened the packaging... I have visions of how this guy could've been done in Collection 2 though and they are grand. Hopefully he's revisited by Hasbro sometime. Some Evolutions style figure would be much appreciated for this Palpatine.
