This Palpatine action figure was released in
2005 in the Revenge Of The Sith Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure seven joints and included
five accessories (darth sidious head, 2 darth sidious hands, 2 blue force lightning pieces).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- This Palpatine (Lightsaber Attack!) action figure was released individually carded
- First the figure was released mistakenly with a blue lightsaber, Hasbro fixed this and then released the figure with a red lightsaber
- Both lightsaber hilts are wrong and don't look like what Palpatine's lightsaber looked like in the movie
- Pictured here is the second and corrected version with the red lightsaber, the error version is here: ROTS Palpatine (blue lightsaber)
- The lightsaber is permanently attached to the right hand
- This figure came with an extra head, an extra set of hands and blue force lightning
- The head can easily be replaced by the second head by just pulling it off the neck
- Both heads are sculpted beautifully and capture Palpatine's regular appearance and the Darth Sidious look very well!
- Both hands can also easly be replaced by the second set of hands
- The blue force lightning pieces attach nicely to the wrists
- When the figure is pressed down, the right arm moves up and down (Lightsaber Attack!)
- Palpatine's body is one solid piece of plastic, so it's a surprise that the figure leans a little bit to the left
- The figure stands OK without help from a stand
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, 2 swivel elbows, 2 swivel wrists
