Supreme Leader Snoke may be Star Wars’ new villainous mastermind and adherent to the Dark Side of the Force, but that doesn’t mean Emperor Palpatine has been forgotten. Palpatine — also known as Darth Sidious — was a mainstay of both the original trilogy and the prequel films, where he was responsible for seducing Anakin Skywalker to the Dark Side. To honor him, Kotobukiya, which has previously released highly-detailed ArtFX statues depicting DC’s Reverse Flash and Marvel’s Deadpool, has revealed new images of an upcoming sculpture of the Dark Lord of the Sith.
Palpatine’s design is based on his appearance in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The 1/10th-scale sculpture shows great attention to detail, particularly in his face and robes. It’s also possible to remove the Emperor from his throne. While there are no images available of what Palpatine looks like without the throne, removing him reveals the control panels that his hands and robes cover up, and the chair’s highly-detailed seat and back.
The Emperor Palpatine ArtFX statue is currently available for pre-order and is slated for release in late January 2018. The statue costs $99.99.
Debuting in theaters December 15, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a production of Lucasfilm directed by Rian Johnson and starring Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke.
