  • Comments: Appearances can be deceiving - a saying never more true than in the case of Emperor Palpatine. In his early days as a senator of the Galactic Republic, Palpatine seemed like an ordinary politician. However, as the Republic fell apart, the senator's hidden thirst for power grew and his true evil spirit became apparent. He declared himself Emperor of the galaxy, and used the dark side of the Force as a means to enforce his tyrrany. He nearly succeeded in wiping out the Jedi Knights, who stood as the most potent threat to his reign of terror. As destiny would have it, Luke Skywalker, the son of Palpatine's loyal apprentice Darth Vader, would ultimately bring about the evil Emperor's downfall.

    Points of Interest:
  • This figure was the first version of Emperor Palpatine to include individual legs, although the plastic robes hindered any type of posing.
  • The Force Lightning Bolts are longer than previous versions, and they attach to the figure's sleeves.
