DARTH PLAGUEIS: THE BLACK SERIES

Finally opened the only figure I've anticipated so far this year, Sith Lord and Master of Sidious/Palpatine, Darth Plagueis.  Impossible to believe a figure of a Muun was in high demand but had been a mystery since Palpatine mentioned him in Episode III.  I'm not sure who decided the species of Plagueis but Hego Damask is unlike most whiny-voiced Muun's and hated stereotypical Muun behavior to begin with, even if he tried to fit in with them.  Like Palpatine, had killed his family, except he used a quack doctor to "treat" his paranoid family, worried about dying young because of some bad genetics passed down from their father (Damask had a different mother than his siblings).

I was expecting Plagueis to be a little taller, as all Muun's are tall, skinny and have long arms, but beggars can't be choosers and this is much better than the San Hill (Muun from the Banking Clan/Separatist Council) figure made about a decade ago.
