SH.Figuarts Mandalorian And Palpatine Revealed!

SH.Figuarts have revealed two all-new Star Wars figures. One of them is actually not just a figure, but a set. First there is the Mandalorian, as you have seen him for about 10 minutes in the show before he gets his first piece of new armor. He comes with a cloth cape, looks very crisp, as usual, but maybe his helmet is somewhat too small, which is a common issue with many helmeted SHF figures.

And then there is the set with Emperor Palpatine from Return of the Jedi. In the set, you will get the Emperor, two Royal Guards (that are basically just statues), and of course, you get his throne. The Emperor comes with several extra pieces and bits. Including alternate heads, hands, Force lightning, and alternate legs and robes so he can sit on his throne. While the Mandalorian is a regular release, the set with the Emperor is a web exclusive and it will cost around $180. Going by the photos released by SHF the likeness is maybe not the best. The Emperor also seems to be a bit tall in the comparison photo with Vader (and Vader’s height is pretty accurate).

Both figures are expected to be released in May 2020. Pre-orders go live on Friday, November 22nd. If you want the Emperor you get a pre-order window. Everyone who wants a figure will get one. This is how the Bandai web exclusives work, figures are made to order. However, if you miss the pre-order window you will have to pay a lot on the aftermarket once the figure is released. Check out more photos on the SHF homepage!

Will you add these two figures to your collection?

Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: The Emperor - ROTJ - 1984

Hasbro, if you don’t MILK the appearance of Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker for an opportunity to bring The Vintage Collection collectors a super-articulated 3.75″ action figure of Emperor Palpatine, it may go down as one of the biggest mistakes of your career developing toys for the Star Wars brand license. Now, we know you’d likely be tempted to release it on a TROS card back, but we’re sorry to inform you it would have to go on a Return Of The Jedi card back so we can check off one of the Kenner original 92. Thank you. (Feel free to release a second version in a box with a throne too.)

A user on Reddit found out an interesting detail about the newly released The Rise of Skywalker teaser poster. The shadowy image of Emperor Palpatine is not a photo of actor Ian McDiarmid in makeup! Instead the artist(s) who created the poster used a Hot Toys figure of Emperor Palpatine! Is that a first that an official Star Wars movie poster uses an action figure instead of the actual character? Are there no decent promo photos of Ian McDiarmid as Palpatine in The Rise of Skywalker? Either way this is certainly flattering for Hot Toys. Lucasfilm must have thought that the figure looks so convincing that it can stand in for the real character. However, several people had remarked – before it was known that a figure was used – that something seems to be off about Palpatine in the poster. At least now we know why.

I’ve been a fan of holeintheground productions’ work for quite some time. Most recently they have put a gorgeous 3.75″ scale Emperor’s throne up for sale. Thanks to Scott M. for pointing us in their direction. And we agree… A new Emperor who can sit in this throne would be wonderful!! Do you have any pieces from them in your dioramas? Let us know in the comments!

SW [TLJ] Emperor Palpatine Hits NJ Walmart!

Wow! A store report of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Emperor Palpatine basic figure has been made in Rebelscum’s forums. There are also other NJ Walmart sightings of this figure too. This confirms our rumor report that this figure would likely make its way out to retail in some capacity. Interesting, huh? Special thanks to JTA reader Rich K. for the news and alert! You can see Emperor Palpatine and the rest of his wave in our exclusive look in our RDRs right now!. If C’ai Threnalli and First Order Flametrooper start showing up I think Entertainment Earth has some reason to be upset!

We have a sneak peek for you of the last wave of Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Force Link figures. Although most of these cancelled figures have been saved by Entertainment Earth, this line has shown everyone that new Star Wars Entertainment is arriving at a pace that doesn’t benefit merchandising and can’t be sustained by retail. Anyway, be sure to check out C’ai Threnalli, First Order Flametrooper and the single-packed Emperor Palpatine right now in our RDRs. Reviews start Sunday!
