A key character in the Star Wars prequel, and arguably one of the most terrifying movie villains ever, Darth Sidious (a.k.a. Chancellor Palpatine, or the Emperor) is well represented in this fantastic, foot-tall action figure. Here, heís cloaked in dark, flowing, hooded robe fitted with a triangular, silver-colored medallion in the center. The hood opens to reveal the Sith Lordís rubbery face and slick, sinister smile; itís truly ghoulish. Comically, underneath it all, the old manís built like Arnold Schwarzenegger, with a rippling torso perhaps borrowed from a G.I. Joe. The action figure enjoys full movement; all the joints twist cleanly, and even Sidiousís fingers move to close around the handle of his sleek, red lightsaber (included).
