|Character Design||Jim Henson|
Review by JoshB
This is another 3-pack I picked up on clearance at Tattoine Traders, the gift shop outside of Star Tours in Disneyland. Muppets are cool. Star Wars is cool. Put them together and you get something double cool.
This set contains Uncle Deadly, Gonzo and Chicken as Emporer Palpatine, Darth Vader and Royal Guard. It comes on a blister card that evokes the feeling of classic Star Wars figures.
Gonzo as Darth Vader is a genius choice, and is actually something he did on the Muppet show as "Dearth Nadir". He comes with an interchangeable head, removable cape, cowl and lightsaber.
Although just labeled "Chicken", I prefer to think of this chicken as "Camilla", Gonzo's main squeeze. Here she is as an amazing Royal Guard with removable helmet.
My favorite figure in the entire series has to be this Uncle Deadly. Parody or not, this is a great action figure. Uncle Deadly has 10 points of articulation and the cloak is a separate, rubber layer. It's great fun and one of the figures I keep on my desk when I work.
Uncle Deadly includes a cane, lightsaber, and force lightning effects that clip onto the wrists.
I really should track down the rest of these sets.
