Biggs Darklighter: Biggs Man On Campus!
Biggs Darklighter, son of wealthy food magnate Huff Darklighter, was a Tatooine native and friend of Luke Skywalker. Biggs made it off the desolate sandy rock that is Tatooine and joined the Imperial pilot academy. Biggs eventually rebelled against the Empire and the crew of the ship he and his squadron were stationed on and fought his way into the Rebellion. Later on he met Luke again before the battle at Yavin. Later on Biggs was shot down and Luke made that fatal shot and dealt a first major blow against the Empire. This version of Biggs--in his man-about-Tosche Station outfit from the 30th Anniversary collection is a pretty decent figure. He does however come with a soft-goods cape, a removable plastic vest and his trusty hold-out blaster. The top half of this figure has decent articulation but the lower half suffers from the stiff limbs of the old figures from the POTF2 era. Despite the lack of some essential articulation this Biggs is still a pretty cool figure despite the fact that he's a bit dated now. Besides he's one of the only guys in the Star Wars saga to rock a mustache!
