Women of Halloween Part 11 - Nightsister!

A Sinister-Looking Sith Witch from Hasbro's Star Wars line 2012

I don't know much about this character except that she looks frightening as hell and she has been tempting me ever since she first started showing upon the shelves at Target a few weeks ago.  She comes in the Target exclusive Darth Maul Returns Battle-Pack and is still in stock at all my local stores.  I thought originally that she was Darth Maul's sister (she certainly looks the part), but in googling her, I discovered a whole mythology about the Nightsisters, including tidbits about several characters I am already familiar with (Asajj Ventress!)  It's actually pretty interesting and someday I'm sure I will dive more deeply into all the expanded universe characters.  This specific Nightsister appears to be the Nightsister Sith Witch who rebelled, escaped her prison, and continually sought out more knowledge about the Dark Side of the Force.  i.e. she's a galactic evil badass.

She comes with a lightsabre, a figure stand, and card for the Star Wars Galactic Battle Game

Time for some comparison pics!
