  • Starkiller (Galen Marek) was released individually carded
  • This figure is a re-release of the very hard-to-find Galen Marek (Starkiller) #VC100 figure
  • Even though Hasbro included all the same accessories as before and used the same mold - this version was given a slightly different paint application
  • This is most notably in the facial area - especially the eyebrows appear to be painted quite differently and an overall lighter colored outfit
  • This version of Starkiller is based on the appearance from the second video game released in The Force Unleashed series
  • The blue lightsabers fit well into both hands
  • The lightsaber hilts fit well into the hands - and they can be plugged into both belts
  • The back panel (backpack? armor piece?) plugs firmly into a hole in the back of the figure
  • Both - the harness and the loin-cloth can be removed and interchanged
  • It's tight to get them on and off - but it works and fits very wellHaving a second outfit with the figure let's you recreate either the look of Marek from the beginning of the game - or the look from towards the end of the game
  • The chest armor is a great fit and can be put on or taken off the figure by popping the head off first (easily doable)
  • Both gauntlets can be snapped onto the forearms - which works OK
  • Starkiller has no balancing problems even in more dynamic poses
  • The head sculpt is done very well
  • The paint application on the figure's outfit mimics the appearance of the character's outfit from the video game very closely
  • All in all - this is an extraordinarily well done figure - which is super articulated - has fantastic character likeness - comes with basically two outfits and a ton of accessories


"Starkiller" is the code name of the Force-sensitive Galen Marek, who becomes an apprentice to Darth Vader during the dark era of the Galactic Empire.
