The Sith, also referred to as the Sith Order was a sect of Force-sensitives who utilized the dark side of the Force. The term "Sith" originally referred to a species of aliens native to the planets Korriban and Ziost, who were later enslaved and ruled by exiled Dark Jedi from the Galactic Republic. These Dark Jedi had once been members of the Jedi Order, a monastic Force religion dedicated to peace through the use of the light side of the Force. The Dark Jedi, who refused to rely exclusively on the light side, challenged the Jedi by giving in to the dark side, which started the Hundred-Year Darkness. However, they had been defeated and subsequently exiled from known space, which led to their discovery of the Sith species. Following centuries of interbreeding and mixing of cultures between the aliens and the exiles, the Sith would no longer be identified by their race, but by their dedication to the ancient Sith philosophy. This religious order would survive in many different incarnations throughout galactic history. The rise of a new leader, or Dark Lord, would often cause drastic reorganizations in the cult, however the Sith would always be characterized by their lust for power and their desire to destroy the Jedi Order.
The Sith were the most infamous of all dark side religions, and the members of the cult were often seen as the pinnacle of power within the dark side. Throughout their long history, the Sith commanded several Empires and initiated many galactic wars. With such great influence, the Sith religion inspired many cults that weren't technically part of the Sith Order, nor did they consist of actual Sith. Instead, they were founded and made up of Sith devotees and other Force-sensitives dedicated to prolonging the teachings and the memory of the Sith. Such cults included the Naddists, the Disciples of Ragnos, the Krath, and the Knights of Ren.
The set includes 3406 pieces, which are used to make a frame and photo of any of the three Sith (Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and Kylo Ren). The frame is built from multiple Black bricks as a base with holes in the bottom, connected via Black TECHNIC connectors to the other bases, of which there are nine, each containing one portion of a Sith's face. A massive amount of 1 x 1 circular tiles are used to build them, with twelve colors each corresponding to a number. Black corresponds to 1, Titanium Metallic corresponds to 2, Dark Stone Gray corresponds to 3, Medium Stone Gray corresponds to 4, Sand Blue corresponds to 5, Bright Purple corresponds to 6, White corresponds to 7, Cool Yellow corresponds to 8, Bright Orange corresponds to 9, Bright Red corresponds to 10, New Dark Red corresponds to 11, and Dark Brown corresponds to 12. While the set is designed to be built with certain colors in mind, the correspondence of the colors can be switched around to form various shades of a Sith's face, as seen below. The set can be framed and attached to a wall, and the instruction booklet is a useful coffee table book that includes descriptions of the three Sith's LEGO history and Star Wars appearances. A 2 x 4 Black tile with the Star Wars logo is included, and a QR code is included in the booklet that connects to an hour-and-forty-minute long soundtrack featuring interviews from the designers of the set and the creators of the three Sith that one can listen to when working.
