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.

JTA reader Richard P. sends us a cool store report from Fred Meyer in Lacey Washington. Unbelievably they’re getting in kicker displays full of The Black Series [Phase III] Emperor’s Royal Guard wave which also includes Lando Calrissian, Tusken Raider and the revised K-2SO (among others). To date this case assortment has barely made an appearance at retail, so maybe they’re finally beginning to hit now.
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!

There has been constant speculation about the validity of the claim that the Imperial Royal Guard was available in a solid case pack. Because as humans we need visual evidence before belief, here you go. These images were posted on Star Wars Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook page by member Pete N. who found them at GameStop. As we have alluded to in the past, not all retailers were offered these which is why some may not know of this case’s existence.
Back in stock at GameStop if you need it!
