About this deal

Of course this entire scene happened indoors in the film, but here Palpatine’s Office is displayed on a shot of the Coruscant cityscape with several huge towers visible and a couple of landing platforms. He also comes with two lightning pieces which represent his Sith lightning, I find these superb personally and although they have been included in sets before, such as set 10188, Death Star, they are a lovely inclusion. This looks quite good, but is not accurate at all and I would like to have seen a chrome gold at least, as the piece is in fact cast in pearl gold, making it a little less special.

Here's his double sided head It's pretty similar to one of the faces that he had in the Interceptor set, except this time he's not gritting his teeth. He has the same hairpiece as Eeth Koth as they are of the same species, but this one is very different in colour to that of Eeth Koth. Mace Windu is okay, but I can't tell: is his face new or the same as the Seso fig from PoP Battle of Alamut? Like Mace Windu, this torso lacks back printing, but again it would only be covered up by the cape anyway.

The difference between the two isn't too large besides the fact that one has a TCW head and the other has a pupil one.

On the back of the box is another shot of the set with various smaller pictures demonstrating the features.When I want to find out about a reviewed set, I invariably look to see if CapnRex has reveiwed it and will almost always read that one first. One day it may go on sale even cheaper but once it hits a dramatic cheap point, they will likely sell out quickly. I for one appretiate a detailed review and would love to see more of the huw and captrex101 reviews going forward especially on the important sets.
