Darth Malgus and Starkiller Galen Marek are joining the Star Wars Black Series

Darth Malgus, Great Galactic War Sith Lord, was born Veradun before he became a definitive instrument of the Dark Side. As he was raised by his adoptive father on the planet Dromund Kaas, he was trained in the ways of the Sith, which would prove ominous harbingers of what was to come for him. Later on, he would come to be recognized for his ever-present respirator, a necessity after he was brutally wounded during the fatal battle on Alderaan. A fierce and ruthless warrior with a command of several alien languages, Malgus believed he was born to fight for the Sith Empire, through which his life’s purpose was realized.

“He’s definitely not a hero, and he’s not an anti-hero,” Paul S. Kamp, developer of Malgus for¬†The Old Republic: Deceived, has said about the Sith’s persona. “My goal was to create a character that readers can respect but still abhor. I very much enjoy writing characters who live in a moral twilight.” Add this enigmatic fighter, pictured below, along with fellow new release Starkiller Galen Marek, to your collection today! They stand 3.75 inches tall and are perfect for re-creating true-to-scale battle scenes.

Darth Malgus killed his own best friend in order to free himself from the shackles of emotion. It's hard to get more ruthless than that.
