  • This Elite Praetorian Guard (With Double Blade) was released in a shared exclusive 4-pack simply titled "Guards" late September 2017
  • The set could be purchased at Gamestop, ThinkGeek and Barnes'N'Noble stores and it retailed between $79 and $89
  • The four figures included in this set are the Senate Guard, the Imperial Royal Guard, the Emperor's Shadow Guard and the Elite Praetorian Guard
  • The Senate Guard, the Imperial Royal Guard and the Emperor's Shadow Guard share the same body and details underneath the robes
  • The Elite Praetorian Guard figure is a representation of the Guards from the Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • The Elite Praetorian Guard came with a double-bladed naginata
  • The naginata can be taken apart in the middle, which then creates two weapons
  • The weapon fits well into both of the figure's hands
  • The two shoulder bells plug into small holes and they move up and down slightly if the Elite Preaetorian Guard's arms are raised more than 90 degrees, this allows for a wider range of movement (nice!)
  • There is no head underneath the helmet
  • The Praetorian Guard has two swivel joints above the elbows, and two swivel joints in the elbows
  • With enough patience it's possible to bend each elbow by about 80 degrees
  • The paint application on the figure was well applied, the armor appears shiny and there is no dirt or weathering to be found
  • The sculpt seems to be a good representation of what Praetorian Guards look like in The Last Jedi, but since the movie isn't out as of this review yet, we can't comment on its accuracy
  • This Elite Praetorian Guard has no balancing issues


As the Supreme Leader of the First Order, Snoke was flanked by crimson-clad guardians, loyal protectors encased in ornate armor ready to defend the Supreme Leader from any thread.
