Looks like the real deal to me. Holographic figures must be the official craptacular replacement for the silver ones.

Plus they didn't even bother to make a new mold, it looks like they just used the same crappy Palpatine as the one early in the basic figure line.

I loved that scene where Palpy's hologram engages in a lightsaber duel and uses force power/lightning on the guy who's watching the hologram. :D

Yep, already another thread (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=29633) on it from the other day.

No big shocker there, the holo Aayla Secura is the same as 'in person' Aayla.

Man, that would look good if it didn't look like such a piece of crap.:whip:

Um, didn't we just get a holographic emperor last year?

Whew! Thank god for that figure, now I have $10 bucks I can move from my Star Wars fund and put in the Beer & Pizza fund. This figure looks like butt-cheek.

I may get it only because I didn't get the Holo Emperor from last year. But it's probably free with a $20 purchase or something, right?

They revealed this earlier this year at Comic-Con. It's the same mold as the horrendous ROTS Palpatine with Firing Force Lightning figure. This is a bizarre choice since in ROTS when he appears as a life-size holograph, he's not yet scarred (when he tells Grievous to move the separatists to Mustafar), and every time he appears after he kills Mace he's either small (to the clone commanders) or huge and only from the waist up (to the folks on Mustafar). It would have been better if they just re-released the Darth Sidious holograph figure from 1999. But oh well, I'll still get it anyway . . .

what i want to know is why people feel they must spend obscene amounts of money on something that will be most likely somewhat free, just to have it first?? It's just weird to me!

I'm pretty sure 95% of it is bragging rights. Maybe the other 5% is obsessive compulsion :confused:

Back in the day I used to pay double for some figures pretty much for the right to have it before everyone else. It's sad and that's why I don't do it anymore. I've still got holes in my collection only because Ebay doesn't deserve my money sometimes.

I'd rather spend my money on pizza and beer than on any action figure. Had somebody put it to me that way in '97, I would have got drunk a lot more than I have, which is quite often. Gimme an ice cold beer over a Star Wars Figure any day. They are cheeper, taste better, don't frustrate the hell out of you, stores are always well stocked, don't have to go to WM, Target, TRU, or KB to get them, and a-holes can't scalp them. Hands down, drinking beer is a much better hobby than collecting SW figures. On the flip side, collecting SW figures could also drive you to drink........

Just make sure you do the drinking after you go hunting. It would suck to wake up in the morning and find the the exclusive shortpacked figure you bought the night before turned out to be the lastest wave of Ninja Turtles. lol

I dunno, some butt-cheeks look pretty darned good...(You have surfed the net right? ha ha)

That I know of it's a TRU exclusive. It will be free with a $15 pruchase. THough I have heard the $20 and $25 numbers kicked around as well. Regardless, with the last dozen due out son, if this Holo Emp comes out around the same time, we'll have no problem spending the dough to get him.
