PROS: Since its announcement, the Royal Guard has been high on collectors must-have lists. The underlying sculpt is fantastic and the tailoring of soft goods robe really adds to the overall aesthetic, allowing for a wide range of unencumbered poses. Collectors will definitely want a couple to flank the Black Series Emperor figure.
CONS: The only one real negative I can find for this figure (aside from its inevitable hard-to-find status) is the included scout blaster. I feel that it is far too small in scale making it hard for the figure to hold convincingly – especially in the figure’s right hand. It should be relegated to the holster and treated as an adornment.
