Years ago, when the Sith attacked the Jedi at Ossus, Cade Skywalker disappeared in a fiery blast. Everyone believes he's dead except Wolf Sazen. And as it turns out, Cade's former Jedi Master is right. Cade is now a disillusioned bounty hunter and pirate who carefully hides his true identity from everyone. But through a series of circumstances, Cade must face his past – and battle the ruthless Darth Talon, the Emperor's newly chosen assassin.

When Hasbro re-launched the Comic Packs line in The Legacy Collection, they thankfully treated fans to mostly all-new sets. (At the start of the line, only one set was a repack from the 30 (77-07) line.) On top of giving collectors all new additions to the line, Hasbro thought it was high time to offer collectors some really great all-new figures as well. They succeeded with this release and provided both art and value in one package to collectors. The Darth Talon/Cade Skywalker set is a perfect example of what fans expect Hasbro to provide for purchase on store shelves. While repacks and retools are inevitable, Hasbro needs to continue to up the ante on what they will decide to release as quality products. Including two very popular Expanded Universe figures, the set also gave us two super-articulated figures with very good likenesses that have very few (if any) issues. Based on the Star Wars: Legacy comic series, the Darth Talon/Cade Skywalker set will make a lot of fans very happy because it is an awesome set.

Cade Skywalker is brilliantly sculpted. His costume is loaded with detail very faithful to the comic books and he has a "grit" in his face that is perfect for the nature of his character. While his eyes look too big and round when compared to the comic book character, very other detail about him is near perfect. His hair is loaded with the various streaks and highlights as should be there and his body is athletic and not too tall when compared to Darth Talon. You may be interested to know that he was packed without a lightsaber for quite some time after his release. Hasbro did fix this issue late in the run, so the version with his lightsaber is quite a bit harder to find. There is also a packaging error. Early sets were numbered "2" but it was ultimately fixed to "4" right before it stopped shipping. These things can drive completists absolutely crazy, but if you're a long time collector, you know this is inevitable from Hasbro. But whichever version you choose to add into your collection, know that Cade Skywalker is a refreshingly cool new figure to get into your collections. Cade Skywalker, who was promoted from pirate/bounty hunter to Jedi, is an example that anything is possible to change and rise up from where you are to carry the Jedi legacy forward.

Darth Talon should make fans of Twi'leks and Zabraks (Darth Maul specifically) very happy. A Sith lord, Darth Talon was adorned in the same tattoos that were seen on Darth Maul. Darth Talon served as Sith Master to Cade Skywalker, until her quickly renounced the Sith and became a Jedi. He ultimately defeated Darth Talon in a lightsaber battle that also included Darth Nihlus. Her action figure is beautifully done. She is athletic, sleek and sexy and she has a very dismissive look on her face. Hasbro did an astounding job on this action figure and you can bet that this first release will be the definitive version of her. She is that good. Both Cade and Talon are outfitted with their appropriate lightsabers and Cade also comes with a gun. There is a great deal of value and it is a worthy candidate for addition into your Comic Packs collection. The Legacy series has a lot of bleak moments and a lot of lightsaber battles, so readers are treated to some intriguing and action packed moments in the Star Wars saga. Hasbro has selected two ideal candidates from the series as action figures and it will undoubtedly make many fans very happy.
