  • This Black Series Carbonized Emperor's Royal Guard figure was released in Kenner-style tribute packaging single carded in Spring 2023 as part of a 2-pack with a carbonized Tie Fighter Pilot figure
  • The Emperor's Royal Guard was an Amazon exclusive and part of Hasbro's Return Of The Jedi 40th anniversary celebration in 2023
  • The figure is a repaint of this Black Series Emperor's Royal Guard figure from 2017
  • The Imperial Royal Guard came with a blaster, a removable soft-goods robe and a Force pike
  • The small blaster fits OK into the holster which is hidden underneath the robe
  • The head can be popped off the body, this way the soft-goods robe can be removed
  • The red robe covers the entire body well, but it feels pretty bulky
  • Because the robe is on the thicker side it will take time to make the robe look good on the figure
  • There is no head underneath the helmet
  • The blaster is too small for the hands
  • The Force Pike is a good fit for the hands and it's possible to have the Imperial Royal Guard displayed "in attention" with the weapon leaned against the shoulder
  • The helmet, the armor underneath and even the robes were given the carbonized treatment which looks surprisingly good on this figure
  • The Imperial Royal Guard stands securely when on display without any balancing issues
  • If you are looking for a gimicky figure which never appeared shiny like this in Return Of The Jedi, then this figure is for you
  • Here is a comparison picture of the regular Emperor's Royal Guard and this shiny carbonized Emperor's Royal Guard


Resplendent in crimson robes and armor, the Emperor's Royal Guard protected the Emperor. Imperial pilots were treated as expendable, but the Epire treated its TIE pilots as important parts of its war machine.
