It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review!

This week, we're having a look at the Star Wars: The Black Series Starkiller and Stormtroopers set from Hasbro. Announced right before PulseCon and available right after the event, the set made its way into collectors' hands really fast! The 'Star Wars: The Force Unleashed' video game series has been a fan favorite for a long time, and finally getting more figures of Starkiller is great (there's also a new Vintage Collection one!). Starkiller comes with a ton of accessories, including 2 Stormtroopers!

First of all, the packaging. The set comes in a big box, with a sleeve that has the cover of the first video game on it (front and back). Under the sleeve, Galen Marek aka Starkiller is displayed with his force lightning hands next to him. Parts of the box unfold on the sides, revealing the Stormtroopers. A very nice box for a very nice set!

Starkiller comes with 3 different heads (normal, evil smirk and screaming), 4 extra hands, 2 force lightning effect hands, 1 force push hand, 1 lightstaber hilt with 4 options (red, moving red, blue, moving blue) and a nice big display base (force impact?). Also, the 2 Stormtroopers accessory figures come with their blasters (let's be honest, Starkiller is the star of the set, those Stormtroopers are accessories).

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was a fantastic video game in which you played Galen Marek, aka Starkiller, the new apprentice of Darth Vader. In the game, you can choose to be a good person (Jedi side) or a bad one (Sith side). During the game, you end up going rogue against your master, and defy the empire (and/or everyone else as well). A very interesting game with a stellar performance from Sam Witwer, who provided his likeness and voice to the character. This set allows you to have a blue or red lightsaber, depending which side you're on. The figure has the same suit as on the cover of the game. There are plenty of other suits in the game, so hopefully there are more to come.

In the second game, Starkiller could wield 2 lightsabers at the same time, so I was a bit bummed out to find only one hilt with the figure, but it turns out you can only have one in the first game (thanks Google!), so that's completely normal. I'll just have to wait for a set from the second game, then... (fingers crossed)

Did you play Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? Any good memories from the game? Let us know in the comments!

I've been wanting a Galen Marek (Starkiller) figure forever. While I am stoked they finally released one, I  was disappointed by the price on this set. Because of that, I will have to wait until they do the inevitable rerelease of the character a couple years from now. 

The price definitely sucks, but what annoys me more is the plain Stormtroopers. If they’re going to pad out $100 set with repacks, at least give them game appropriate deco that most people don’t have. Like the blue FU troopers.
