    Sidious/Palpatine 2-pack... more than just a rumor.

    I was checking all the coverage of Comic Con. I was there, but couldn't make every event. Paramount was covering Indiana Jones and Star Trek at the same time as SideShow, so I went to Paramount's presentation.

    Anyway, on Rebelscum, I found their coverage of SideShow and it said there were indications of a Palpatine 2-pack with Darth Sidious and The Emperor.

    I don't know for sure how it could look, but the coolest possibility would be:

    Supreme Chancellor in red from the Mace Windu duel in ROTS
    Emperor Palpatine from his "formation of the first Galactic Empire" speech in ROTS

    We have Hasbro's ROTJ version, and the ROTS Yoda duel version. I'd love something different. The outfit from the fight with Mace is on my want-list for sure. However, they could repack the hologram from the Mechnochair as well I suppose.

    Too bad they have a ROTS one. If they had an OT I'd be all over it...

    I don't actually know what they might have. There's no info on it that I know of as of yet. I was just hoping they'd include what I'd want - which was different from you.

    I don't think they're correct, from what I saw at the Sideshow panel, the clues suggest to me a Sidious/Dooku 2pack.

    That's my hope. I'd rather have ONE Sidious figure with interchangable portraits and robes along with a Dooku than wasting a 2 pack on two of the same character (albeit in different guises).

    Dooku would also make a great companion piece with Assaj Ventress or in a duel display with ROTS Obi-Wan and Anakin....more flexability with what we already have. (That may be wishful thinking, but hey...)

    Hopefully we'll know soon enough...

    Thing is:

    Dooku is a pretty decent seller. His Hasbro figure did really well. It was one of the best 12" they ever put out.

    Palpatine is a pretty terrible seller, no matter if the sculpt is good or bad.

    Thus SideShow would be well-aware they could sell Dooku at any point.

    If they include him to help sell Palpatine, sure that would work. However, if you got 2 Palpatines in a pack, that might also sell Palpatine and SS could still sell Dooku anyway.

    Sidious would be an AWESOME seller! So would Dooku.

    Let me put it to you guys this way:
    Lords of the Sith page in the catalog is shown, they said this was a clue to the 2-pack (which we already knew was prequel-themed) and they showed 4 figures, 2 that were already released and 2 in silhouette - one was wearing a hooded cloak-shape and the other had a longer neck and a cape shape around the shoulders and was the shape of Dooku's head.

    It could be a 2-pack of one of the last scenes in ROTS where Dooku meets up with Sidious. That would be sweet. I think this is the best was for us to get a pre-disfigurement Sidious/Palpy. A post-disfigurement one (ala battle with mace) could come with 2 interchangeable heads and the hooded cloak. This would really be fine on its own. However, I do agree that Dooku could easily be sold on own. I hope is Sidious and Dooku...

    I would be interested in this set at least its new characters and not another Luke.
