With these amazing collections, you can create unforgettable battle scenes from a thrilling new chapter in Star Wars history.


Prince Xizor:
Underlord of Black Sun crime organization. Over 100 years old but looks 30. This reptilian-like villain exudes pheremones, which make him irresistible to human stock females.

Emperor Palpatine:
Self-appointed ruler of the Empire after overthrowing the Republic and destroying most of the Jedi Knights. The Emperor watches as Darth Vader and Prince Xizor attempt to curry favor with him.

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.
