  • This Imperial Royal Guard was released single boxed in May 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 bulky and thin at the same time
  • It takes times to make the robe flow good on the figure, but it's possible
  • 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 belt is its own piece and it's plugged into the back of the figure, it is possible to remove it by stripping it down the legs (we don't recommend this)
  • The accurate red color tone on the outfit, the sculpted details underneath the robe, it all makes for a great looking figure!
  • The Imperial Royal Guard stands securely when on display without any balancing issues
  • This very same figure was later in the same year (2017) re-released as a Gamestop/ThinkGeek and Barnes'N'Noble exclusive: Imperial Royal Guard


Resplendent in crimson robes and armor, the Imperial Royal Guard protected the Emperor. Secrecy shrouded the Guard, with rumors abounding about the sentinels' backgrounds and combat capabilities.
