The figure has robes that connect to his hood. Arms are separate jointed pieces, as are the neck and hips. Thanks to the robes he won't be doing much sitting, but the belt, boots, and everything look really slick. The face looks a lot more like the make-up, and I have to wonder if they had a superfan or improved reference for this one. If you're a fan that just wants the best-looking Emperor for a display, this is it.
This is the Emperor you want. This is evidence Hasbro still has a booming creative force inside that can make awesome things for us when they so choose - it's uncommon, but it's real, it's here. It's great. While I expect the set may hang around a bit, support something awesome and go buy it for yourself or a collector buddy at (or near) regular price. Send Hasbro a clear message that when it comes to exclusives, all-new sculpts of original trilogy figures are most welcome.
Force Link Notes: "Wipe them out, all of them." "In time you will call me Master." "You will bring him before me." Sith lightning sounds.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Target. It was on sale for 25% off.
