He is Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander. Born in 1592 in the Highlands of Scotland, and he is still alive.
He is Immortal. For 400 years, he's been a WARRIOR, a LOVER, a WANDERER, constantly facing other Immortals in combat
to the death. The winner takes his enemy's head: and with it, his power. I am a Watcher, part of a secret society of
men and women who observe and record, but never interfere. We know the truth about Immortals. In the end, there can
be only one. May it be Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander.
For six seasons Highlander fans across the globe were given the chance to witness the triumphs, the sorrow, the loves and the losses of Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander. Now Rittenhouse Archives captures the excitement in a huge 126 card set covering all six seasons, 119 episodes in all, in The Complete Highlander: The Series Trading Cards.
