Kotobukiya ARTFX+ Emperor Palpatine

Sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has just listed the new Emperor Palpatine ARTFX+ figure from Kotobukiya. Despite its slightly larger scale, this set may serve as a great way to enhance your 6″ Black Series dioramas.

Kotobukiya’s next ARTFX+ statue is none other than Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi! Emperor Palpatine is sculpted in incredible detail, from his calculating face to the creases in his robe. The figure can be removed from the throne.

Each duo retails for $79.95 and is limited to an edition size of 1,000.

UPDATE: Another 40th Anniversary Vader Legacy Pack Variant

Joining all of the wave 2 card variants for the 40th Anniversary Collection, the Darth Vader Legacy Pack box has also received the text adjustment for the age recommendation – switching to all UPPER CASE.

UPDATE: This text change also extends to the Darth Vader cardback inside the box making for 3 distinct carded versions:

“Red Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – UPPER CASE text
