“Created by Roy Thomas and Howard Chaykin for Marvel’s 1970s Star Wars comics, the rabbit-like Jaxxon was recently fully adopted into modern continuity thanks to an appearance in a Star Wars Adventures tale by Cavan Scott.” This cult favorite character is an absolute must-have from this wave, so you’ll want to…hop on it as fast as possible. It includes two blaster accessories.”
“Inspired by the comic book adaptation (written by Mike Baron and illustrated by Olivier Vatine) of Timothy Zahn’s seminal novel (Star Wars: Heir to the Empire”, this Luke Skywalker figure depicts the Jedi five years after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.” The figure includes a lightsaber accessory along with a lizard-like ysalamiri – a species that were capable of repelling the Force. Note that the ysalmiri is sculpted to fit around the neck of the Black Series Archive Grand Admiral Thrawn figure.”
“This version of Darth Maul comes from a 2000 comic series set pre-Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Written by Ron Marz and pencilled by Jan Duursema, Star Wars: Darth Maul offers a glimpse into Maul’s Sith training and sees him dispatched to handle a new threat to his master.” Includes his signature double-bladed lightsaber. Does not include a shirt.”
“A student of the dark side and a rising Sith Lord, Carnor Jax was first introduced in 1997’s Star Wars: Crimson Empire comic miniseries, written by Mike Richardson and Randy Stradley with art by Paul Gulacy.” This figure is a Carnor Jax update to the Black Series Imperial Royal Guard figure. Includes a double-ended vibroblade accessory.”
