This release marked the 3rd time that Star Wars Collectors got a Prince Xizor action figure. The figure is far superior in it's overall look and it's appearance when compared with the Xizor action figures from the mid-90ties, however the figure is not without it's problems. For one, Xizor can't stand by himself, even though he has 14 joints! Because of his hard-plastic cape you can't position the legs correctly. Luckily Hasbro included the peg holes in his feet so that he can be placed on a stand. It is quite frustrating though that Hasbro still releases figures which can't stand on their own. The details on the figure are nicely done, especially the soft-goods drapes hanging from his arms add a nice touch. The face sculpt is outstanding, and the paint is applied nicely. Hasbro included a staff with the figure, which Xizor can hold tightly in his left hand. Overall, this is a great looking figure and an overall improvement to earlier versions of this character, but considering that fans had to wait for 13 years for a new Xizor figure, it should have probably turned out better.
As Leia struggles to save the Alliance from being crushed by the Empire, she learns that bounty hunters are after Luke. She infiltrates Black Sun to find out why that crime syndicate wants Luke dead. The leader of Black Sun is Prince Xizor, who sees Luke as a way to get his revenge upon Vader and, at the same time, gain favor with the Emperor. Her mission is in jeopardy when she meets Xizor and finds herself unable to resist the prince’s strange power.
