At an impressive average of 6 inches, Hasbro’s infinitely popular line of STAR WARS: The Black Series of action figures has added an entirely new dimension of play and collectibility for fans and enthusiasts of adventures set a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. The line of highly-detailed, incredibly accessorized, and multi-articulated figures stand apart from their predecessors, even though the standard 3 ¾ line is still available and very popular. With the STAR WARS franchise consistently evolving, Hasbro has endeavored to keep collectors on their toes!

Following the success of the Disney+ Original Series, STAR WARS: Ahsoka starring Rosario Dawson in the current iteration of the heroine that was first introduced in the animated series The Clone Wars, the live-action adventure has brought together many of the saga’s most popular characters, and captured their likeliness for The Black Series line of figures. Fortunately, for fans, there is far more to explore in the limitless reaches of the STAR WARS universe, even with the next proposed trilogy of films still largely in pre-production, there is the era of “The Old Republic”.

The action figure is highly detailed!

In George Lucas’ galaxy, the stars are as old as time itself, and the war between good and evil, the Dark Side, and the Light Side of The Force itself has a complicated and lengthy history. Predating The High Republic, a renaissance of the Jedi Order comparatively 500 years before the consequential events of the “Battle of Yavin” there was a much more turbulent epoch categorized as The Old Republic, which is set 1,000 years before Episode IV: A New Hope. It is an era much maligned by the machinations of The Sith Order, a sect dedicated to corruption and chaos and wielders of The Dark Side of The Force.


Joining characters from across the franchise films and expanding mythology are foes and friends from STAR WARS: The Old Republic and among the first in the fray is the fearsome Sith Lord DARTH MALGUS a popularized opponent who first appeared as a major player of the STAR WARS: The Old Republic video game. The action figure perfectly captures the character’s very threatening visage and impressive stature, standing at approximately 7”, Malgus is larger than most in the Black Series line. Perfectly and powerfully detailed, the figure includes a red Sith lightsaber and a removable respirator.

An unconventional Dark Lord of the Sith nicknamed the “False Emperor”, Darth Malgus figured prominently in the days of the Sith Empire and led several campaigns against the Jedi Order and fought in the Great Galactic War against the Galactic Republic. Tyrannical in many ways, Malgus was responsible for the deaths of many Jedi when he was chosen to invade the Jedi Temple. He is mortally wounded in a battle and is forced to wear a respirator that gives him a similar appearance to Darth Vader.

The hulking caped and cowled design of this figure will remind many of Vader, and it’s a frightening reminder that thousands of years before the Rise of the Empire, there was an even more malignant evil that threatened freedoms and order in the galaxy. Many have believed that Darth Malgus went into secret seclusion, awaiting the precise moment to reemerge and reclaim his power base, securing his legacy in the Sith Order. The figure is among the first to chronicle heroes and villains from “The Old Republic” and is eco-friendly packaged and awaiting to take his place on your shelf.

STAR WARS: The Old Republic “DARTH MALGUS” | Hasbro’s STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES Gaming Greats 7” Action Figure is available for purchase now from most online retailers including here at the Hasbro Pulse for $33.99.
