An astute political operator, Senator Palpatine shrewdly uses his clout with the young Queen Amidala to maneuver his way past Chancellor Valorum to leadership of the entire Galactic Senate. But as followers of the original Star Wars
trilogy may already know, Palpatine's tactics foreshadow the rise of an evil empire that will eventually dominate the galaxy. This collectible action figure comes cloaked in his officious senate robes, a Senate Cam Droid at his side. Innovative new CommTech voice chip technology (included) enables Palpatine to utter "The republic is not what it once was," and two other phrases. (CommTech reader available separately.) --Jerry McCulley
A generation before Star Wars: A New Hope... In a galaxy far, far away, an evil force is gaining strength and threatens an entire civilization. Two courageous Jedi, a young queen, a Gungan outcast, and a slave boy named Anakin, band together to save a planet under attack as the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance. Hasbro continues the Star Wars adventure with this line of action figures for Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. This Senator seems to be an ally of Naboo and the Republic, but he has a dark secret. Senator Palpatine comes complete with Senate Cam Droid. Each figure is approximately 4 inches in scale, is fully posable and articulated and includes an individual Comm-Tech chip which acts as a display stand for the figure and interacts with the Comm-Tech Reader (sold seperately) to make the figure talk! Collect them all, each sold seperately.
