I got this guy for 50 cents at my local comic store. He was in the "fodder bin", probably due to missing one hand and all accessories. My guess is that he is a Star Wars character (a Sith), but I'm not completely up to date with the franchise.

Maybe he is one of many versions of a Darth Sidious toy figure, and without accessories is more difficult to identify.

Is this guy a known Star Wars character?

    That looks more God of War than Star Wars to me. – amflare Jan 13 '18 at 3:17

    Is there any writing on the back or the feet? – Valorum Jan 13 '18 at 3:19

    Star Wars action figures almost always have their toes pointing out, and this guy does not. – Buzz Jan 13 '18 at 3:22

    Or maybe Mad Max – amflare Jan 13 '18 at 3:32

    First hit on Google Reverse Image search was "2017 Times person of the year". Something got broke in translation clearly. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 14 '18 at 5:51

Without having one to compare in person, and going by the photo you've provided, I believe this is the Palpatine figure from the Dark Empire 2 line released in 2008, except missing his cloak and saber.

palpatine figure from 2008. check out the foot.

The hair color and expression of the face are a match, and if you look at the exposed foot in the photo, it looks like he has a similar wrapping around his foot. Additionally, the figure was released in 2008, matching the production date on the figure. LFL C-001C is also a production code for Star Wars figures.

  • That looks like a dead ringer to me. Zoom in on the Palpatine pic and you can see the wrapping on the foot. You can also see wrapping on the hands. And the heads look identical. Good job on that pic find. – Joey Jan 16 '18 at 18:14
  • I've taken the liberty of adding a better pic and a video review of the toy. – Valorum Jan 16 '18 at 18:50

    In light of the latest image, I don't think you need to qualify "I believe" anymore. – ThePopMachine Jan 16 '18 at 19:40
