There hasn't been a figure version of Prince Xizor since Shadows of the Empire (Star Wars) first came out in the mid-1990s. That's a shame, and I'm very glad Hasbro remedied that by putting out a great new version of Xizor. First thing's first: this Xizor can stand! Unlike the prior version, which notoriously could not stand because of the plastic cape, this one stood right out of the package - almost no manipulation required! Also, the paint, sculpt, and articulation are all wonderful. I particularly like the color tones, with subdued yellows and purples running throughout. It really gives the air of royalty, where the previous figure just looked like a big bully.
I took a star off of this set because the Leia figure is horrible. This set should have been the ideal time to make a figure of Guri, Xizor's sexy android aid, or a new Dash Rendar. Instead, the Leia is ugly, with thick legs, an unrealistic face, and a shawl that doesn't stay clipped on. Given the price, this set is worth getting for Xizor alone, but it could have been even better.
