Road to The Last Jedi: Supreme Leader Snoke (Throne Room) from Star Wars: The Black Series Phase III by Hasbro
Height: 7 1/8ths inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double hinged knees, swivel thighs, ball jointed hips, ball jointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel biceps, double hinged elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, a hinged neck, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Belt and 2-piece throne
Non-Scalper Price: $39.99
* Snoke has an unusual build as he is very tall, very slim, and rather gaunt. The robe he wears is not removable but it is an actual soft goods robe and gives the figure a rather cool appearance. Snoke's built is removable, however. It's made from a pliable plastic and is easily removable.
* Snoke's headsculpt is incredible. The sculpt is very disturbing (down to his throat) and features all kinds of odd-looking scars and deformities. The paintwork is also really impressive and nuanced.
* It might be a little weird looking but there is something rather intriguing about Snoke's emaciated from. What is this guy's deal?
* I've seen a lot of criticism of Snoke's robe but, in person, it looks pretty cool. Again, it's a rather unusual design, but it has an impressive somewhat glittery texture woven into it.
* Snoke is as well articulated as any other Black Series figure, and perhaps even more so due to his double hinged elbows and his lanky proportions.
* He also sits perfectly in his throne! Man, I really want a throne made for the Emperor now, too!
* And here's the throne! It's a really large, sturdy accessory that has a great Star Wars-ish appearance to it. The sculpted details look great on this. It also should connect to the flooring that comes with the upcoming Kylo Ren (Throne Room) figure that is a Wal-Mart exclusive.
* The paint detail is pretty cool, too. There are lots of painted lights and buttons all over the sides of the throne as well as lighting around the middle.
* The back of the throne has some rather soft sculpting and no paintwork. It's a bit bland, really.
* Snoke's gold slippers are weird, but his massive ankles are weirder. Yikes!
