    Description of when the card is in Mara's lifetime:

    "Mara Jade, the Emperor's hand, went undercover and posed as a dancer for crime lord Jabba the Hutt. This identity was used from the time of The Empire Strikes Back till shortly after Jabba's demise.

    As "Arica," Mara was commanded by the Emperor to assassinate Luke Skywalker. She planned to eliminate him as he worked to rescue the fallen Han Solo. The final Arica card image was suggested by depictions of Arica in stories published by Dark Horse Comics."

    My opinion of the card is that's its an excellent image! :D Gone are the floozy (sp?) hair Lisa and Erica complained about since she's wearing a disguise. And its quite a sexy pic, with Jabba in the background (he's not the sexy part).

    Here's the link:

    Oh, also here's the card image of Prince Xizor:

    I'll post the link when other EU cards are added that I think are interesting. I've posted a link to Corran and Talon Karrde already.

    When they officially post Thrawn, Capt. Pellaeon, Guri, Mirax Terrik, the Wookie bounty-hunter Snoova, Dash Rendar, or any other image that I think is an interesting EU image, I'll post the link here, so stay tuned.

    I forgot to mention that there are things that I like and dislike about that Xizor image. But Mara as "Arica" more than makes up for any problems I have with it.

    I'm sure JediJeff13 will agree!

    Mara's hair is so much better as Arica. You are totally mistaken about the sexiest part of the card though, Sal. It's the Jawa in the back.

    Nope. Still take the regular Mara card over that one.

    I've didn't really feel like posting when this came out on the official website, but now I do. Here's the link to Guri's card and her first image portrayed by a model.

    The Guri card is OK, but I don't know why they changed the color of her costume. The Arica card is real hot, though. It's good to be the Jabba!

    I agree about Guri's costume, but I think the model they chose was perfect.

    Here's two more card images, both wookies:

    Chewbacca, Protector from when Chewie cut his mane to impersonate the Wookie bounty hunter on Coruscant:

    And the other is Snoova, the Wookie Bounty Hunter that Chewbacca impersonated:

    Okay, Mirax is cute. But NO WAY you can't put over me that she fell for Corran Stackpole Horn. Nope - I'm sorry, but no personality would make Mirax looking like that fall for Corran looking as he does. Not gonna buy it.

    Your just jealous JJ13 because she didn't fall for Wes! And in regards to Guri the costume looks like something out of dare I say Star Trek.

    Guri's outfit also looks a little like the uniforms in Crusade.

    Among those there are Thrawn, Guri throwing a chair or something ("Agents of the Black Sun/Vengeance of the Dark Prince"), a pic with Mara and Karrde ("Watch Your Step/This Place Can Be A Little Rough"), Leebo (Dash's Droid), The Outrider (Dash's ship), The Virago (Xizor's ship), Capt. Pellaeon, Kir Kanos, Jabba's Prize (Frozen Han), and a new Lukie and Palpy. As I said they will add Dash Rendar tomorrow too.

    You do that, Mara. I wear an XL shirt (I like the room), 36w x 34l jeans. 35" sleeve and an 18" neck is you get me a really nice shirt. No red, though. Red doesn't work for me too well. More in the blues, olive and black.

    Errr....that's what you meant, right?

    Eggs. Boiled, poached, over easy, scrambled and raw. That's all.
