Star Wars The Emperor Jumbo Action Figure: Power of the Force Edition
It was 37 years ago in The Empire Strikes Back that the feared Sith Lord Emperor Palpatine first felt a great disturbance in the force. Fearing the possibility of Luke Skywalker becoming a powerful young Jedi, he commands Darth Vader to hunt him down and destroy him… or turn him to the dark side.
Palpatine will prey on Luke’s anger, fear, and desire for vengeance to realize his sinister goal. The path to the dark side is one travelled well by Palpatine, for he has led another powerful young Jedi down it before. So unfolds the Emperors plan in Return of the Jedi to lure Luke into confrontation with Vader and, ultimately, learn his true destiny.
Inspired by the vintage Star Wars figures of your childhood, Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the Emperor in jumbo size! Digitally scanned from mint 3 ¾” vintage originals and reproduced in 12” scale, no detail has been overlooked. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this fully-articulated jumbo figure includes a faithfully re-produced cane accessory and POTF coin. To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged this figure with a Power of the Force-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, the figure comes in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition figure.
FN-2199 Trooper Star Wars Mini-Bust
The First Order Stormtrooper FN-2199 has several nicknames. Fans nicknamed him TR-8R after his famous first line in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In the Star Wars comic books, he was called “Nines.” No matter what you call him the one thing we know about FN-2199 is that he hates defectors!
Armed with his blaster, shield and his Z6 riot control baton FN-2199 is ready to take on any unruly crowds or former friends now wielding lightsabers.
