You know, I look at that in the chair, and now all I can think of is Seth MacFarlane's "what the hell is an 'aluminum falcon'?!?" voice.

It looks good, but besides the Robot Chicken-esque nature of it, I just don't know if I can drop $225 on this set. That's the price I'm assuming it is since that's what it is for the 12" Thrawn figure with similar chair. Gonna be a thinker.

Yeah, the $200 plus price (as its gotta be) is gonna be rough.......

The exclusive is the angry grimacing head.

$140 for the chair? You have to be kidding me. Why, oh why?

Ordered both of them. Seems the exclusive Palps sold out in 16 minutes

I decided not to go for this. It's an old man in a robe, and as well-sculpted as the head seems to be, I only really dig the grimacing head and enjoyed the extra hour and a half I got sleeping in over the $95 + ship & tax I would have paid out. I think it's a well-sculpted figure, but I just don't see what justifies $90 about it when well-sculpted Lando who has 2 guns and a commlink was overpriced at $70. I mean, Palps here comes with a cane, that's it! He's got so little they had to pad his description with "shoes" and "pants". I can't always be their ATM, a line has to be drawn somewhere.

Missed the exclusive palpy but that's ok. the regular head woulb be the one I left on anyway. Got The regular Palpy and the throne ordered. Now all I need is 2 Royal guards to go with him.

Exclusive is waitlisted. If this clears, I'll get the throne. if not, I'll pass

This is a cool figure and set to have. Havn't preordered them myself, gonna wait till after the new year to see where I'm sitting after taxes and stimilus.

I managed to get both of these preordered & here's my one concern/complaint. For the $$$ they charge us...I feel Palpy's robe is dead, dead wrong & not movie-accurate. It looks like standard flat black material..and I remember the Emperor's robe having some knit weave pattern in it, at least in the hood. I even confirmed this when I looked at my old Don Post Emperor full-head mask with attached hood. Anyone else see this?

Sideshow's Emperor robe is a little flat. I checked out Dressing a Galaxy and there's a nice close-up of the Emperor's ROTJ robe fabric which is patterned. I won't fault Sideshow however, Trish Biggar used different patterns for the different Jedis' robes ie: Mace, Anakin, Obi-Wan all use different materials which Sideshow copied but not to the tee.

Thanks...I thought it looked like it had a very distinctive pattern weave.

I canceled the throne at Sideshow and ordered it at Razor's Edge. But kept the EX Palps at Sideshow.

I just got the Sidious/Palpatine pack, which makes me even MORE excited for Emperor then I already was lol. These are my first two Sideshow figures, and maaaan have I been missing out!:) Now I'm searching ebay for mib, and loose sideshow lol.

Palps came with three left hands though lol.

My Throne just shipped from Sideshow but not Palpy.

Glad these are starting to ship. Should be quite the impressive set!

Hearing good things about the throne. You'll have to sit other figures there in the mean time until Palpy arrives.

Very nice, but it sure makes their 12" Emperor look ridiculous. :p

Glad to see from the pix coming in from Comic-Con, they got the weave pattern right on Palpy's robe, and not that flat appearance it had in the early prototype pix.

Serg...did your Emp. throne show up in ok condition...I'm reading horror stories on other sites?

Dang, that Koto looks like the right scale. They say their line is 1:7, but that figure fits well through that pose into the chair.

No problem with my throne at all, it arrived in excellent shape. Read about others problems, quite disappointing from SS.

Indeed. They say the SS throne should have been a bit larger to be 1:6 accurate

I better open mine now. I was holding off until the Emperor was delievered. The box was a little banded up when I took it out of the shipping box, but that is unfortunately expected. I have had Sideshow send me about 5 new boxes over the years to replaced damaged ones.
