COMMENTS
This issue prints the first 8-pages of artwork from what would become Tales of the Jedi #3, "The Saga of Nomi Sunrider". When reprinted later, it would feature a different colorist and letterer.

There is also a two-page Afterword also written by Tom Veitch that is similar to the Dark Empire write-ups. Here we discover a little about the creation of the Tales of the Jedi book, including notes such as Vima Sunrider is the great-great-great grandmother of Vima Da-Boda from Dark Empire.
SYNOPSIS
While the story of Ulic Qel-Droma was an important turning point for the galaxy, there is another tale of a Jedi, adept in the arts of Battle Meditation that will never be forgotten, Nomi Sunrider.

Jedi Knight Andur Sunrider, his wife Nomi and their daughter Vima gather their things and board their ship the Lightside Explorer on a mission to find the Jedi Master Thon. Andur has some Adegan crystals that he is bringing in exchange for training him further in the ways of the Force. His droid Threedee prepares the ship and they make the jump to hyperspace.

They land at a spaceport near the Stenness system to clear customs for their trip. The travelers and their Adegan crystals are noticed by a local Hutt crimelord and his associates, who plans to steal them and sell to the highest bidder. As 3DO returns to the table with food, Quanto and Rek, two of the Hutt's henchmen, create a diversion while Gudb and his pet gorm-worm Skritch sneak up behind Andur and attack him. The poison from the gorm-worm works very fast and soon Andur is lying dead in front of his family.

The spirit of Andur Sunrider appears to his wife, urging her to pick up his lightsaber and defend herself.

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.
