View Full Version : Why can you see Sidious's face?

I dont get it. If you cant see his face in Episode 1 why would hasbro sculpt his eyes in the action figure.

Well, how would YOU do it, sculpt the face blank from the nose up, paint the area above the nose black? I don't know why, but I know that Lucasfilm approved it.

Duct tape is like the Force. There's a light and a dark side, and it still holds the universe together.

I cant find a picture, but there is a Pizza Hut Darth Sidious toy where you can only see his nose and eyes.

I actually remember seeing a promotional picture from EPI of McDiarmid wearing the dark Sidious robe and 'looking' (full face in view) right at the camera.

Yeah...over at StarWars.com it's featured in the Darth Sidious profile.

I asked the same question. But when you think about it, they had to put eyes or the figure would be completely messed up.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is the pic that Hasbro was given to sculpt the figure.. I mean, they had to start work on the figures from day one of E1 shooting, even then..

If it really bugs ya, take an airprush, load it with black paint, give it a little spray in the eye area, it'd look pretty cool!
