Never mind how many times Palpatine did actually used his lightsaber because, you know you want his lightsaber anyways. And want you can with the Star Wars The Black Series Emperor Palpatine Force FX Elite Lightsaber from Hasbro. A mouthful the product name is, but you can’t deny it is gorgeous piece of Star Wars collectible (in an undeniably ostentatious way).
Featuring advanced LEDs and movie-inspired sound effects – activated with the buttons on the hilt, a metal construction, and design and deco, this is indeed a faithful replica of the darkest of the dark Sith’s weapon as seen in the Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
Like the The Black Series lightsaber that came before it, the Star Wars The Black Series Emperor Palpatine Force FX Elite Lightsaber comes with a stand so you can proudly display it as fan trophy of sort, albeit in an rather unusual orientation, IMHO.
The said stand can also display the lightsaber without the blade too. And yes, you can totally remove the blade if you so desire. That (without the light blade), if you ask me, is a nicer display option. Not for children under the age of 4.
The Star Wars The Black Series Emperor Palpatine Force FX Elite Lightsaber is available for pre-order now on Hasbro Pulse for a Emperor kind of pricing of US$249.99. Galaxy credits not accepted, btw.
