So I have a Target gift card, and I was on their website, looking for some stuff to buy. Of course, I go to the Star Wars section. Then I come upon this odd thing called Legacy of the Force, which apparently is the next booster set. I don't know if you guys have seen this picture before, but...

A picture http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/4 ... SS260_.jpg

So, I have a question. Who is the person on the cover?
I'm not too well-versed in the EU, so if somebody could help, that would be nice.

There is a debate on the WotC boards going on about who that is - we probably won't know until the set is released.

My best guess: One of The Solo's or Skywalker's kids.

Yeah, I thought it was Jacen Solo.

Could be Anakin Solo on the Vong ship just before he was killed.

It seems a little to old for him though, he was killed when he was 11 or 12

I think he was middle teens, like 16 or 17.

If he was only 11 or 12 then I am going with Jacen.

This has to be the first set where people can't even 100% decide on the cover of it; much less the three minis on the side!

EDIT:. from the poorness of the pic, i thought the lightsaber was gren. after further looking, i see its blue. then you look at the way the persons body is, knnes bents, bodies tilted, for balance if you will. then look at the alfit, black. look at the hair, long. the backround is read and yellow, lava perhaps. then loom at the lightsaber, closely. it appears to be anakins ep 3, or lukes ep 4-5. i would say it may be anakin ep 3 on mustafar. but thats the best i can do.

Yeah, but that doesn't explain the weird tube on his back.

It looks like luke to me, but the background of the picture looks kind of like mustafar so its probably anakin hopefully, its about time they made another anakin that doesn't have armor.

If I were a signature collector, THIS would be one of the best ever!

Anakin Solo on Sernpidal perhaps cuz that thing in the back sure looks like a moon that is coming very close to him. Maybe we'll get a super-uber Chewie that represents him in his last hours would be cool no?

well the saber being Anakins open the door to a whole legacy of Skywalkers.... As Mara used it right until death.... then Ben has taken it over.... but Anakin Solo never had or used Anakins Saber

I would personally think that even if they have an Anakin in the set it would not make the Box art as it is Legacy of the Force collection and that would be in the future past the New JEdi Order Series

Forgive me, as I'm not too EU oriented, but Mara's death?! :shock:

Not a day ruiner, but still a little shock. Oh well, looks like I need to start reading more EU books.

When did Anakin or Jacen have a silver lightsaber people?

Its Draco Antares Imperial Knight from the Legacy Comics, I'll put money on it.

Also, Cade Skywalker is one of the figs on the side. The middle one.

Doesn't look anything like ANY of the Imperial Knight pictures we've seen so far though. Not a bad guess, and could be based on some image in the comics between now and March. The lightsaber hilt does look suspiciously like Anakin Skywalker's though.

Judging by the attachements and the background I would wonder if it was Jacen after he was captured by the Vong.


I like this guess. I will go with it too.

Of the three figures on the side, when you zoom into to check them out, it looks like the bottom one has a green header, thus New Republic.

You also notice it is tall and built (probably a male), somewhat odd shaped (not human), and holding what appears to be a cane or staff leaning on the ground (doubtfully a lightsaber, but possible). Oh and as mentioned, he has a short name.

Is there anyone from the New Republic that fits that profile?

If he was shorter I'd say Borsk Fey'lya, but there is really no way to tell how big the figure actually is relation to the card since it's just a picture and never really to scale.
