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.
Trevor is a New York-based Creative Director and owner of The Brand Counselors. He has a growing collection of 150ish 1:6th scale stock and custom figures (and more and more Lego sets). Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and – in his mind – justifies the ridiculous money he spends on these things. When he’s not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building seemingly endless custom figures.
