  • Comments: Trained in the deadly, secret art of echani and fanatically devoted to the Emperor, the Royal Guard from which these two men rose was the most feared group of warriors in the Empire. Treacherous usurper of the Imperial throne, Carnor Jax betrayed his brothers in the Guard and defiled the memory of the Emperor, earning him the undying hatred of Kir Kanos. Kanos, devoted to the codes of the New Order and Emperor Palpatine, embarked on a vendetta that rocked the shattered Empire to its foundations. Though Jax had trained himself in the dark side of the Force, his power was not enough to stay the burning vengeance of Kanos, at whose hand he met his death.

    Points of Interest:
  • Both Carnor Jax and Kir Kanos incorporate parts from the 2005 Royal Guard III-023 figure. New parts include a new torso, gauntlets, and heads.
  • Kir Kanos was revealed early on, while Carnor Jax was declared a "mystery figure" for months until he was finally revealed.

  • This set was re-released as a non-exclusive set at retail stores, and there has been a change to the helmets: for some reason, they both now come with clear visors.
