Sideshow presents the Royal Guard Premium Format™ Figure, prepared to stand sentinel in your lineup of Star Wars™ collectibles.
The Royal Guard Premium Format™ Figure measures 23.5” tall on a sleek black Death Star base as this imposing Imperial keeps vigilant watch under Emperor Palpatine. The Royal Guard is a loyal servant of the Empire, robed in red fabric and armed with a Force Pike, creating the intimidating silhouette of this iconic Star Wars figure.
The Royal Guard Premium Format™ Figure features a mixed media costume composed of a polystone body beneath the crimson fabric cloak, elegantly draped to create the plunging lines of the red uniform. This elite Imperial soldier also wears a face-concealing helmet with a visor, as is customary of the Emperor’s personal bodyguards.

Sad news arrives that Jay Benedict, Deak in the deleted Tosche Station scenes of A New Hope, has passed earlier away from COVID-19, better known as the coronavirus. Born in Burbank, California on 11th April 1951, young Jay and his family left the States for Europe and saw him develop a career that included The Rocky Horror Show on stage and a slew of highly regarded roles in the West End and at the Edinburgh Festival whilst on film he took roles in Hanover Street with Harrison Ford, Victor Victoria with Julie Andrews and played Newts father in Aliens. In the realms of the galaxy far, far away he is best known for playing Deakon ‘Deak’ Starkiller, Luke Skywalker’s friend in the deleted Tosche Station scenes of A New Hope. We were fortunate enough to chat with Jay back in 2016, an interview you’ll be able to hear on this week’s episode of Making Tracks podcast. #jaybenedict #starwars #covid19
