This is one of my older custom action figures (created back in 2004). I wanted to create an Emperor Palpatine that was SA and could sit down on his Death Star II Throne chair. This was done at a time when the best Hasbro had offered us was a "salt-shaker" Emperor with working arms and head, but a solid body.

The most recent Emperor action figures from Hasbro are produced with soft goods robes that are far too poofy, and ruin the look of the character. Also, the face sculpts tend to reflect more of Palpatine's prequel appearance (scowling and jeering), rather than his deceptively weak old man appearance from RETURN OF THE JEDI...

Holy cow, he looks so evil, sinister and screen accurate! I can hear Ian McDiramid saying something evil and Emperor-y. Awesome job bud!

oh Geez, this is 3.75/ I thought it was a rebuild of the hasbro 12" figures. You've got a nice respect for scale in your work I'm seeing. Very nice. I've done a lot of refitting with the 12" figures to give them better articulation closer to the more recent and even further vintage 12" Gi Joes. They usually come out very nice.
