One of the most beautiful things throughout the STAR WARS Saga is the dynamic between villains... and the different levels within their ranks. For every smooth gangster like Darth Vader, there's a governmental jerk nearby, like Grand Moff Tarkin, for example. And in Tarkin's shadow in the era of STAR WARS REBELS is Agent Kallus, a member of the Imperial Security Bureau, which creator Dave Filoni refers to as being "sorta like the F.B.I." Kallus also has some of the finest facial hair in the galaxy, and his helmet is designed specifically to protect said beardness. Agent Kallus was one of the first figures to be released from the STAR WARS REBELS collection, and is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar!
