The new limited edition Star Wars Elite Series Premium Action Figures, that will be released at this weekend's D23 Expo, have been revealed. One of the most prominent struggles our favorite heroes face in the galaxy far, far away is the decision between the light side and the dark side, now fans will get a chance to recreate those battles with these limited edition action figure packages which feature one hero from the light side and one hero from the dark side of the force.
Characters packages that you will be able to purchase at the D23 Expo - the ultimate bi-annual Disney fan event being held this year July 14-16 at the Anaheim Convention Center - include Princess Leia and Darth Vader from the original trilogy, Rey and Kylo Ren from the latest installments in the saga The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, and Jyn Erso and Director Orson Krennic from the first anthology film released last year, Rogue One.
A recent post on Nerdist revealed an exclusive first look at these light verses dark duos. Each set is priced at $79.95 and are limited to just 1,000, with each set accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity. The figures stand at 10.25 to 11.50-inches tall and are extremely flexible with over 30 points of articulation, and the female characters also feature rooted hair (sorry Kylo). Here is a look at the action figures, their accessories and packaging:
