It’s beautiful! The Emperor Palpatine/Luke Skywalker/Emperor’s Royal Guard TARGET exclusive three-pack may not contain super-articulated action figures, but that doesn’t prevent it from being a fantastic multipack.

Emperor Palpatine/Luke Skywalker/Emperor's Royal Guard

Tags: , , , , , ,

Hasbro has produced one of the greatest 3.75″ three-packs the line has ever seen with this release. Love them or hate them, the 5POA figures included in this set represent some of the best/finest likenesses of three core Original Trilogy characters. Most of the figures in this set come with more than 5POA. The figures are NOT perfect, but the approaches made with them show that Hasbro is committed to creating products that are as faithful as possible to their onscreen counterparts. Emperor Palpatine is the best Episode VI version of the character ever. Luke Skywalker could not be more reminiscent of the 1983 figure. And, while as simple as it could be done, the Emperor’s Royal Guard is exactly what we need for  an “at attention” iteration of them. Start praying now that Hasbro takes the digital files, at the very least, of the Emperor Palpatine figure and develop a glorious The Vintage Collection version. We all have waited WAY too long for that figure. Also, be sure to come back and check out the review on Black Friday where I have a couple of cool snippets of trivia that you may or may not know about these figures.
