About this deal

We partner with Rakuten Advertising, who may collect personal information when you interact with our site. This torso does have back printing unlike Mace Windu and Kit Fisto which shows some more of his creased Jedi robe and the rest of the belt. I knew there was something really bugging me about the window, and when you made your argument that it should be shattering like the Helms Deep wall instead of just tilting forward i couldn't agree more.

When I want to find out about a reviewed set, I invariably look to see if CapnRex has reveiwed it and will almost always read that one first. As the evil Sith Lord struggles to fend off the Jedi, will his newest recruit, Anakin Skywalker, come to his rescue? While Palpatine's Arrest has been only slightly overperforming the average yearly growth of many sets Star Wars sets, with an average annual growth rate of 11%, this set is strong investment for many LEGO collectors. He has the same hairpiece as Eeth Koth as they are of the same species, but this one is very different in colour to that of Eeth Koth. Best of all in my opinion, we get two metallic gold Microfigures which represent the strange statues that Palpatine has throughout his office which are very rare indeed and look fantastic.

So we just saw leaked footage of this scene in the game, and it's a cutscene rather than a playable mission or level. The horn and cranium piece is fantastic; it is exactly the same as the ones on the Clone Wars Saesee Tiin and features some very nice dark orange printing on the top and the speckled design around the edges of the part. The user who bought this set posted pictures and a review on this site and by doing this he shared the first impressions of the set with the public. The other face has a much angrier face with sunken eyes and the same scars and lines for cheek definition. It recreates the Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith battle scene in Palpatine’s office where Mace Windu leads a Jedi number to capture/kill Chancellor Palpatine.

Some sections of this set are better than others, but it does look nice when it's all connected together.The front however is highly detailed with a brown Jedi robe, a dark grey under-shirt and a dark grey belt. It consists of Palpatine's apartment suite with detachable features, a Jedi airspeeder with opening cockpit and dual flick missiles, and includes 6 minifigures: Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu, Saesee Tiin, Agen Kolar, Chancellor Palpatine, and Kit Fisto.

Star Wars Episode III Palpatine's Arrest set 9526 was released on July 23, 2012, retailing for ₩109,464, it has since been retired. The current value for a new and sealed Palpatine's Arrest is estimated around ₩686,536 today with current average yearly gain of about 11% but will level off in the next year closer to a 10% annual growth making it a solid investment. He also comes with two lightning pieces which represent his Sith lightning, I find these superb personally and although they have been included in sets before, such as set 10188, Death Star, they are a lovely inclusion. BrickEconomy, the BrickEconomy logo and all content not covered by The LEGO Group's copyright is, unless otherwise stated, ©2024 BrickEconomy.The detailed reviews give you a much better feel for the set than a mere pro/con list and I for one appreciate the effort CapnRex puts into his reviews. The torso is mostly tan in colour and he is wearing a simple tan Jedi robe with some creases in it and a brown undershirt. Lego star wars Palpatine's Arrest makes a great display for the the collector and also has lots of play value for the younger Lego collectors, with 6 mini figures of major characters from episode 3 of the films. If you have a minifigure, like Palpatine, standing on part of the brick in the office, and you press down the brick, it will catapult him. He has a very serious expression which is well suited to him, and a couple of lines for cheek definition printed on his face.

I think it would have been better if they used the same explosion technique they did for the wall in the Lord of the Rings Helms Deep set. The Palpatine's Arrest has 649 pieces and is ranked 1388 on the list of biggest LEGO sets ever made. Like Mace Windu, this torso lacks back printing, but again it would only be covered up by the cape anyway. Uniquely among these six Minifigures, this is the first time an Agen Kolar Minifigure has been produced and will probably be the last unless they make another version of this scene in years to come.

Here, his eyes are bright yellow due to him being corrupted by the Sith and his teeth are yellowed slightly which looks amazing. The pieces of lightning used by Sidious are great and perfectly fulfil the role of Sith lightning I think.
