The sculpt of the vintage ‘The Emperor’ action figure kind of gives me the creeps. Compared to most other vintage Kenner action figures, it’s remarkably detailed. Under normal light and with the naked eye, you don’t really notice it. But turn out the lights and get up in his grill with a magnifying camera lens? He really looks like he’s staring me down and ready to wipe that smirk clean off my face. Another excellent example of Kenner doing extraordinary work in the later years of the original Star Wars toys.
