Collectibles company Kotobukiya has revealed a brand new Star Wars ARTFX+ statue of Emperor Palpatine. The 1/10 scale statue depicts the character, as played by Ian McDiarmid, sitting upon his throne from the throne room aboard the second Darth Star. The statue is based on the Emperor’s appearance in Star Wars – Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Here is the official description from Kotobukiya:
“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 in detail from his calculating face to the creases in his robe. Statue can be removed from the throne.
Display alone or alongside other Star Wars ARTFX+ statues like the Royal Guard, Darth Vader or the upcoming Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight!”
The Emperor Palpatine ARTFX+ Statue is available for pre-order now on the Korobukiya website and will become available Late January 2018. It will retail at $99.99. Take a close up look at the statue in our gallery by hitting the next button below.
