This Darth Sidious (Palpatine) action figure was released in
2005 in the Revenge Of The Sith Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure four joints and included
three accessories (2 force lightning effects, extra right hand with lightsaber attached).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- This Emperor Palpatine (with glowing Force Lightning) figure was released in the "Deluxe line"
- The figure has a lever in the back, which when pressed down rotates the head and switches it to Darth Sidious
- It also raises both hands and turns on the blue light, which shines out through both sleeves
- The two blue force lightning effects can be plugged into the holes in the sleeves
- The right hand can be exchanged with an extra hand that came with the figure, it has the lightsaber permanently attached to it
- The main body is one solid piece of plastic, which helps the figure to stand very securely on its own
- There is a screw in the bottom, which enables you to get access to the batteries
The articulation details are as follows: 2 swivel arms, 2 swivel wrists
