He does look slightly better, but, to me, he still slouches far too much. In stills I've seen from the movie, his feet do touch the ground, but, he also sits more upright than the figure can. Modding the seat so he can sit further back would fix it, but, I don't think it can be done.

CHEERS!

Can't agree with you there -- he leans back into the throne. We've been over this; go back and look at the photos from the film already uploaded in earlier posts in the thread.

I did, and, his head is much nearer the top of the throne in movie stills. It was people replicating that which led to the dangling feet issue. There's a combination of the figure and the throne at work here and I think putting the figure on a body with longer legs and fixing the throne would be the most complete fix. Here's the still from your own post:

You can see where his head needs to be there.

CHEERS!

Ok, yes, in this photo the head looks closer to the "ceiling" of the throne. But:
(1) I was talking about the angle of the body leaning back into the chair, and
(2) If you look at the top of the throne, you'd see the upper side of its "ceiling," indicating that the perspective shows it from slightly above, not straight from the side. This would reduce the perceived distance between the top of his head and the underside of the "ceiling" in appearance.

That said, longer legs in addition to the slightly shortened throne would not be a bad idea.

Yeah, that would definitely work.

Here's an example of the little bit of repaint on the HS, done by Mandible:

Nice!

For the original Emperor in the 80's cut of TESB they put in the eyes of a chimp. So, next time you want a detailed look at Sith eyes, have a look at a pic of a chimp!

CHEERS!

Oh yes, they certainly made the eyes sparkle, so to speak.
