Death Squad Commander was a figure released in 1977, part of the Star Wars collection.


This figure was renamed to the "more PC" Star Destroyer Commander on The Empire Strikes Back cards and has stayed as such on every card printed afterwards.

Though this figure became better known as Star Destroyer Commander, he was introduced to the original Star Wars Generation as Death Squad Commander. It didn’t take long for Kenner to reevaluate its "macabre" name selection and, in a truly Orwellian manner, ‘New Speaked’ it to the name ‘it always was called’.
