This Darth Talon figure was released in 2008 in a Comic 2-pack together with Cade Skywalker. Darth Talon's character was never seen in any of the feature length movies, but had quite a few appearances in the Expanded Universe.
Darth Talon has a total of 12 joints. Because of lacking elbow articulation, it's quite difficult to pose the figure in a more dynamic pose, especially the way she holds her lightsaber is very limited. The paint application is pretty cool with tattoos all over her body including the back and front, face and Twi'lek tails. The figure stands well on it's own, but Hasbro included the typical peg holes in the feet, so you can use a stand for a more secure stance. The only weapon included with the figure was Talon's red lightsaber which comes with a removable red blade. The hilt is unique and looks like Talon's lightsaber in the Legacy comics. Luckily, the figure can grab the weapon tightly with either hand.
All things considered, it's a cool Darth Talon figure, and if Hasbro had included ball-jointed elbows, this figure would have received a higher ranking. Unfortunately, it really does limit the positions you can place the figure in without any elbows. However, it's still cool looking and it'll make a great addition to your Sith figures. And, it's probably the sexiest Star Wars figure released so far, besides Princess Leia in her slave outfit!
