Display alone or along side other Star Wars ARTFX+ statues like the Royal Guard, #ad Darth Vader or the upcoming Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight!

Available January 2018.

About Emperor Palpatine:

Scheming, powerful, and evil to the core, Darth Sidious restored the Sith and destroyed the Jedi Order. Living a double life, Sidious was in fact Palpatine, a Naboo Senator and phantom menace. He slowly manipulated the political system of the Galactic Republic until he was named Supreme Chancellor — and eventually Emperor — ruling the galaxy through fear and tyranny.

A Star Wars fan since 1978, he has a passion for all things Star Wars and wonders why May the 4th is not a national holiday. He lives in the wastelands of middle Georgia with his wife, two girls, and two dogs.

San Diego Comic-Con 2017 is now in full swing!  Last night was preview night for the convention, and tons of new images have been released online.  Today we are starting with the Kotobukiya Preview Night images.  Thanks to the fine folks over at Figures.com, we have a load of new images of the Kotobukiya Star Wars display.

Again, just like the Hasbro booth, this is preview night, so not a lot of new being displayed here, but rather upcoming stuff.

We do get a good look at the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens First Order Snowtrooper and Flametrooper (which you can pre-order via the affiliate link here), as well as a new First Order FN-2199 statue.

Star Wars Celebration 2017 Exclusive R2-X2 ARTFX+ Statue – $44.99
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Under the service of Rebel pilot Theron Nett, R2-X2 was one of the many causalities during the Battle of Yavin when the X-wing it was assigned to was shot down in the trenches of the first Death Star.

R2-X2 stands 4 ½ inches tall in 1/10th ARTFX+ scale. Magnets in its feet provide the perfect stability on the included metal display bases. As with other Celebration exclusives this release also includes a special commemorative collector’s coin.

 

Star Wars Celebration 2017 Exclusive R4-M9 ARTFX+ Statue – $44.99
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! A green and white Astromech Droid under the service of the Galactic Empire, R4-M9 played an instrumental role in retrieving data from the Tantive IV’s computer banks in conjunction to the whereabouts of the stolen Death Star plans.
