Star Wars is the ultimate space opera. The chords it struck in my brain when it first came out are still ringing. Effigy are to release a figure called the emporer and some multi-part guards.
They are not equipped in the cinematic style and do not carry their
staff weapons. Some carry a rifle or smg. With the peasant cap they look
very different to the Emporer's Guard. I could almost see them as a
guard at Ming's Palce. Others carry swords which have almost the quality
of a katana. The final group are equipped with a kind of halberd which
could easily have been taken from Jabba's Palace.
With the Space Pals models from Highlander Studios there are now almost enough figures out there to run a Star Wars game.
