I just love this figure. High quality and likeness on point as expected from Hot Toys! And in my opinion the throne is a must have for an evil display. And thanks to Sideshow for the ultrafast oversea shipping!

I'm glad I held out for the deluxe version

This is an awesome figure, but the throne definitely makes it for me. Although he looks pretty gnarly with the lightning bolts attached, I simply love the menacing evil of seeing the Emperor sitting on his throne. Darth Vader on one side and a royal guard on the other, and this figure is the centerpiece of my cabinet. I definitely recommend picking up the deluxe version if you are on the fence. You won't regret it.

So Be It

Great figure all across the board the Throne is heavy the Palpatine figure is very detailed from head and hand sculpt too outfit. He has all the qualities one comes to expect from Hot Toys products

Impresionante figura

Esta es mi primera figura, son increibles los detalles que tiene, llegando a tener las pupilas perfectamente hechas, mola mucho estar haciendo las diversas poses que tiene, aunque yo lo he dejado sentado en el trono pero con la espada laser en la mano, entregandola, sin duda, repetire otra Hot Toys (corriendo de que mi mujer me tire de casa....); respecto al servicio de Sideshow, es una gran ayuda los planes para pagar que tiene y el envio es rapidisimo (completamente pagado el 28 y recibido el 5 del mes siguiente), lo unico que hay que contar con aduanas pero si quieres alguna figura en particular, no suele haber para elegir en otras tiendas, tienes que comprar en distribuidor.
