The Gaming Greats Collection of The Black Series has had some great releases this year. The Shadow Trooper is absolutely incredible and the detail in the Stormtrooper Commander is mind-blowing.
Well, joining the Gaming Greats collection is Darth Nihilus from Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II now available for pre-order at Gamestop. He will release just in time for Halloween, too coming out on October 26th.
Darth Nihilus is a powerful Sith Lord who became so ravaged with a lust for power that he became a bottomlessly hungry void. He was found by Sith Lord Traya, who offered to teach him how to feed his endless hunger with the force. He agreed and became her apprentice.
Later, Nihilus became one of the three concurrent Dark Lords of the Sith. The three together formed the triumvirate. The trio chose individual names and Darth Nihilus became the Lord of Hunger, embracing his lust.
In his lust, along with Sion, the third of the triumvirate, overthrew Darth Traya, the Sith Lord who taught him everything and sapped her energy from her, severing her ties to the force and crowning himself Emperor and Dark Lord of the Sith.
Darth Nihilus is an infamous Dark Lord of the Sith who is not considered a part of Canon, but is a well-known and admired Sith Lord. Why, oh why, did George Lucas have to make the bad guys in Star Wars so cool?
