The long-awaited debut of the final pre-order images of Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious debuted this morning on Hot Toys Facebook page.
These images look like an improvement over the prototype shown at SDCC and other cons last year.
There will be two versions; standard and deluxe. The Deluxe version will include the Emperor’s throne with LED features in the top and arms as well as Luke Skywalkers lightsaber hilt.
Other accessories common to both versions include; six hand options, cane, force lightning, and stand. I do wish they had included an optional “scowling” sculpt – at least with the Deluxe.
No price announcement yet, but these should be up for pre-order soon. I would guess around $220 for the Regular edition and somewhere in the $$280-$300 range for the Deluxe.
