#35 Palpatine **SPOILERS**
« on: April 26, 2005, 04:39:45 PM »

Hello to all,

Just bought this figure at walmart.  I thought it was supposed to come with Sidious' red lightsaber, I got Darth Vader's red saber.

Is this supposed to be, I'd feel cheated if Canada got the wrong lightsaber mold the right colour, referring to original US blue lightsaber.

Anyways, if anyone can enlighten me, please do.

Thanks

I was looking around at some pictures of this fig and noticed even the blue lightsaber was Anakin's hilt and that the red was the same handle. I wonder why he doesn't have his own lightsaber.

Due to the fact that I've seen a few threads about this figure marked "SPOILER", I'd suggest that the movie will straighten out why he comes with the different sabers. Only time will tell.  ;)

Palps has 2 sabers in the story. His first is lost in the duel vs Windu. As far as I can tell the sabers are identical makes....He uses his backup against Yoda. Still a little unclear though on whether Windu destroys the saber or Palps simply drops it.

Maybe to you - but there is a LARGE (and EASILY ANGERED) group of us out here that have been doing our best to remain FREE OF SPOILERS. It's a choice we're making so that the LAST STAR WARS MOVIE EVER will be as enjoyable as possible when we see it in the theatre.

It's common courtesy to mark the thread or post with a warning - period.

I agree with the others.  Okay, for ROTS, I've let myself get spoiled, but with TPM and AOTC, I knew next to nothing about either one up until I saw them in the theater.  

I avoided all spoiler threads, and didn't even look at the backs of figure cards until the movie opened.

It's increasingly difficult, but far from impossible, to remain spoiler-free right up to a movie's release.  Please respect the wishes of those who want to enjoy the movie unfold and not know how it turns out.

Of course, it's probably safe to say everyone knows Anakin turns into Vader.  ;)
