Bounty Hunters Three

"Both infamous and anonymous at the same time, Bounty Hunters are far more than mercenaries for hire - they're heirs to a professional legacy - an ancient brotherhood with a glorious history."
―Unknown

 Boba Fett is known as the galaxy's best bounty hunter of the next several decades, often working for the Empire.




Bossk the Trandoshan bounty hunter was one of the six bounty hunters Darth Vader hired to track down and capture the Millennium Falcon. Dengar  was a Corellian bounty hunter and one of the galaxy's most efficient mercenaries; his work teamed him with the likes of bounty hunters such as Boba Fett and Bossk.

Red 5: Luke Skywalker and R2D2






Red Five was Luke Skywalker's callsign in the Battle of Yavin, during the Galactic Civil War as a member of Red Squadron. The squadron was an Alliance Starfighter Corps X-wing squadron active during the Galactic Civil War and gained the distinction of being the unit that brought down the Death Star's defenses as well as ultimately destroying the station itself. But the victory came at a price. Almost the entire squadron was destroyed, except for two X-wings flown by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles.  -- paraphrased from Wookiepedia

Imperial Stormtroopers





54mm Star Wars stormtroopers. The standing figure has a moveable arm so you can raise his hand up and down. 

Stormtroopers were the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire. Like Imperial-class Star Destroyers and TIE fighters, stormtroopers served as ever present reminders of the absolute power of Emperor Palpatine. These faceless enforcers of the New Order were considered an extension of the Emperor's will, and thus they often used brutal tactics as a way to keep thousands of star systems throughout the galaxy in line. At the height of the Empire, stormtroopers had effectively become symbols of brutality and terror. With few exceptions, they were distinguished from all other military units by their signature white armor. -- paraphrased from Wookiepedia
