  • This Emperor Palpatine figure was released in a 6-pack exclusively as a PX Previews exclusive
  • A PX Previews exclusive meant that you had to get this set through a specialty shop, like your local comic book shop or online
  • The set is based on characters which appeared in the Crimson Empire comic book series
  • The other figures in this set were Darth Vader, Alum Frost, Carnor Jax, Kir Kanos and Lemmet Tauk
  • Palpatine is a re-release of the 2005 Emperor Palpatine figure but this time there was no Force Lightning with extra hands included
  • Hasbro gave Palpatine his red lightsaber, a cane and a removable soft-goods Sith robe with clasp
  • The robe fits well but it is unfortunately too long and bulky
  • The clasp which holds the robe in place can be taken off (the head needs to be removed first, which is easy to pop off)
  • The lightsaber and the walking stick fit well into the right hand
  • The left hand is sculpted in a grip-like, force-reaching pose
  • The paint application on the figure is very well done, especially the details on Palpatine's lightsaber hilt look great with golden highlights and a black/silver grip
  • The aggressive face expression looks cool too, this Palpatine is ready to fight anybody who wants to mess with him!
  • The super articulated figure with nicely hidden joints stands well on display without falling over


The Royal Guard is Emperor Palpatine's elite security force. Clad in striking red robes, they are respected and feared throughout the galaxy for their elegant and deadly fighting skills. Candidates are chosen from the ranks of the Imperial squads and trained on the barren world of Yinchorr. They work hard to master the lessons being taught to them, for their very lives are at stake: When Darth Vader tests them in the Crucible arena, they do not get a second chance if they fail the test.
