The inside cover of this dust jacket folds out to a mini poster, and the cover of the book is actually printed the same as the dust jacket, a first for a Star Wars book.

SYNOPSIS
From the first appearance of Darth Vader in the groundbreaking movie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars fans have known what terror feels like–and they loved it. But never before has Star Wars publishing ventured into the unknown territory of true horror...until now.

When the Imperial prison barge Purge breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope seems to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours, nearly all aboard the Purge will die. And death is only the beginning.

For aboard the Star Destroyer, amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all. For the dead are rising, soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

Poll
While it can be argued that both are important to many collectors, the Probe Droid wants to know, if given the choice, would you demand Hasbro brought back all the articulation or improve the paint applications.
Great Paint applications are more important to me.
I'm all about multiple poses, so I'd rather see all the articulation come back.
