To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm, Hasbro is releasing four new Black Series figures of characters pulled from Expanded Universe, now known as Legends, books and comics. Luke Skywalker, Darth Maul, Carnor Jax, and Jaxxon represent 30 years of print characters.
Luke Skywalker is pulled from Heir to the Empire while the other three are from comics. Darth Maul, sans shirt and robes, is pulled from his own comic while Jaxxon, based on his recent Adventures comic, originated in the original Marvel run of comics from the early 1980s. Finally, Carnor Jax is pulled from the Crimson Empire storyline.
