Five years have passed since the Battle of Endor. Luke Skywalker is the first Jedi in the fledgling Republic, but the dark legacy of Emperor Palpatine still threatens him. The smuggler Mara Jade has long wanted to find Luke and kill him because of his role in the death of her former master, the Emperor. Her chance to strike arrives at last, but events cause her to join forces with him to escape Imperial forces.|
Points of Interest:
Both Luke Skywalker & Mara Jade are all-new figures, done up in comic-book style and deco.
This means that some coloring "mistakes" have been made. Mara's outfit is purple instead of black, and Luke's lightsaber is blue instead of green. Which may explain the colors, but not why Luke has Ben's lightsaber.
A variation has been found where Mara Jade has a green lightsaber blade.

Also included with this figure is a folding pamphlet that shows other toys in The 30th Anniversary Collection.
