    Points of Interest:
  • Captain Needa is a partially-new figure that uses the legs from 2007's TAC Death Star Trooper, along with a new upper body.
  • The rank badge and cylinders are glued in, but they can be removed. This allows for a potential army of different ranks of Imperial Officers to be made in the future.
  • This figure contains an extra "Droid Factory" piece to Build-A-Droid. This figure includes U-3PO's left leg.
  • There is a variant edition of the Build-A-Droid figure in this wave: it comes painted in either a silver or a champagne finish.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
