This single boxed Black Series Mara Jade figure was exclusively released through the Fan Channel in March 2023
Mara Jade is based on Timothy Zahn's Dark Force Rising novel from 1992
The figure comes with a purple lightsaber, a blaster, a removable goggles/scarf combo, and a harness
To remove the harness or the goggles/scarf combo, you need to pop off the head first
The goggles/scarf combo is sculpted as one piece and can only hang down on the front, an extra hat/goggles combo would have been nice to include here so that Mara Jade could be displayed the way she is seen on the cover
The lightsaber hilt can be hung from the belt
The purple lightsaber blade easily detaches from the hilt
Mara Jade can hold the lightsaber only loosely in the right hand, but she has a good grip on the blaster
The blaster fits snugly into the holster
The head sculpt and photo real print are both impressive in person
The paint application is well done, but some unpainted details on the belt remain
Mara Jade's skin tone on the arms is accurately represented, the flesh tone is not too bright and not too dark
The arms look good and besides the elbows there aren't any other joints in the arms which would be distracting aesthetically
All in all, the figure does a commendable job representing Mara Jade, and if you're a fan of Timothy Zahn's '90s novels, then this figure is certainly worth your consideration
Mara Jade was once Emperor Palpatine's Hand, his most trusted assassin. Five years later and now a successful smuggler, the last thing Mara expected was to stumble upon her former arch-enemy: Luke Skywalker.
