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.

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.

Wow. This is an unexpected surprise! It looks like Emperor Palpatine will be coming carded separately in the Force Link basic figure line as evidenced by this eBay auction. Check out on eBay! This figure will probably be in the same case assortment with the X-wing Pilot Asty lookalike character that was revealed at NYCC. Special thanks to JTA reader Josh C. for the alert!
TARGET has added a preview page of the Star Wars Force Link Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Battle three-pack. It has a release date of November 1st. It’s cool to know we’re finally getting that Emperor’s Royal Guard that was planned for the Rebels line a few years ago, although, it will be retooled to accompany the Force Link feature. Special thasnks to JTA reader Ginji A. for the alert!
