About this deal

I think it would have been better if they used the same explosion technique they did for the wall in the Lord of the Rings Helms Deep set. This is the first Chancellor Palpatine figure from the live-action films which has been released and he is excellent. My only complaint would be that he lacks his shoulder capes in this set, but I could always give him the shoulder capes from the TCW one. He wears a brown cape like Mace Windu (and the other Jedi included) which is the only change between this figure and the others.

Once the model was revealed however, I found myself a little underwhelmed by it all and although the Minifigures were all that I had hoped for, the actual scene left something to be desired. The current value for a new and sealed Palpatine's Arrest is estimated around ₩686,536 today with current average yearly gain of about 11% but will level off in the next year closer to a 10% annual growth making it a solid investment.The very compact nose has been emphasised on the figure which looks accurate, but slightly odd in my opinion, however the incredible detail more than makes up for this minor drawback in my opinion. Best of all in my opinion, we get two metallic gold Microfigures which represent the strange statues that Palpatine has throughout his office which are very rare indeed and look fantastic. The difference between the two isn't too large besides the fact that one has a TCW head and the other has a pupil one. His belt is dark brown and has some pouches on it which looks great and this belt is continued on to the back of the piece along with the layered Jedi robes, although this back printing is all obscured by the cape. It's pretty cool that all six of the figures are either a jedi or a sith, and it's also pretty rare to get this many lightsabers in one set.

The hair piece is identical, it is the same tussled hair as we see on the Clone Wars Anakin Skywalker, but here it is cast in dark brown which is much more accurate to his film appearance. He also comes with two lightning pieces which represent his Sith lightning, I find these superb personally and although they have been included in sets before, such as set 10188, Death Star, they are a lovely inclusion. The printing on the front is almost identical to that seen on his Clone Wars counterpart featuring dark tan Jedi robes with some creasing, a white under-shirt and some skin visible in the neck area. Mace Windu is okay, but I can't tell: is his face new or the same as the Seso fig from PoP Battle of Alamut?Palpatine’s Arrest was a set which I was very excited about prior to the release of images, due to the incredible scene from the movie, and also the fantastic characters who might feature in such a set. Whatever criticism you are being given CapnRex, I always read all of your detailed reviews as I find them excellent! There is only a single instruction booklet and unlike most of the new Lego Star Wars instruction manuals, this one has no comic in the back. Two faces are printed on the head piece, one of which shows his standard, more human, face with gritted teeth, blonde eyebrows, and many wrinkles which really expresses his anger as he fights the Jedi and is ideal.

At this point I'm just ready for the wait to be over because I feel like people's expectations and standards have gotten way too high, and I think the issues we have with what we've seen and heard will seem a lot smaller when we're actually able to experience the whole thing for ourselves. His hair is the same as that of the Clone Wars version, with a neatly tended hair style featuring some nice hair texture detail and a fairly accurate look for the figure. Episode III has five levels in this game, and four of those already contain major duels/battles (Anakin v. Of course this entire scene happened indoors in the film, but here Palpatine’s Office is displayed on a shot of the Coruscant cityscape with several huge towers visible and a couple of landing platforms. While accuracy may have suffered a little at the expense of play features, these features are good fun and this is an excellent representation of that fateful scene from Star Wars Episode III, the Revenge of the Sith.

The blade is the newer darker shade of green which looks much better than the old version and the hilt is metallic silver. The moulded detail of his tentacles is fantastic and the only thing that could improve this part in my opinion would be if the piece was not cast in rubber, but the standard ABS plastic. His chair does not spin and his desk is the same design as the ones used in the Venator and the Tantive IV. On one of these it is possible to see the Naboo Royal Starship (I think we are all hoping for a Lego version of that one day).

Just press it down like that and it will flip him up in the air, representing him flipping around the room. Mace Windu is a real favourite of mine and I still believe that Lego has yet to produce a really definitive version of this character; however, the figure is still very nice, albeit similar to previous incarnations. More Minifigures are nice, especially Palpatine, Saesee Tiin and the brand new Agen Kolar in my opinion. He has the same hairpiece as Eeth Koth as they are of the same species, but this one is very different in colour to that of Eeth Koth. There are quite a few highly desirable parts in this set, including many dark red pieces; this is a fairly uncommon colour and a very attractive one.

The torso printing is brand new and looks wonderful featuring some dark brown creased Jedi robes with a dark tan undershirt. Near this area, there are also two mechanisms that throw Palpatine in the air to imidate his flipping he portrayed in his fighting style during the encounter of the Jedi Masters. Now we move on to Anakin Skywalker, who at this point in the film is really struggling with his emotions. although if yours really did come with those extra plates then that's definitely a plus side to the set and fixes that problem. I confess that this may be due to my own prejudices, I've always preferred ships and vehicles to diorama's.
