* The first figure I'm looking at is the Imperial Death Trooper, a figure I already reviewed back in early October. This is the same exact figure as the one released by itself except for the fact that this guy comes with some gear strapped to his body. Honestly, this one being re-released doesn't bother me that much. The Death Trooper is an army builder and the inclusion of the harness is definitely something new
Sandtrooper's equipment, really.
* The grenades across the Death Trooper's torso are really cool. Too bad they're not removable. Those would have been a really nifty feature.
* Let's look at the reason you're probably buying this set: Captain Cassian Andor. Dressed in an outfit that is just pure classic Star Wars (and not entirely unlike Lone Star's), Cassian really appeals to me. He's a solid, well built figure with the articulation you'd expect from this series.
* This isn't the perfect likeness of actor Diego Luna, but it's a decent headsculpt. The Black Series has a slightly caricatured look and Cassian Andor should fit in just fine alongside everyone else.
* I'm totally digging this outfit. The jacket looks great and the simple, muted earth tones look really cool. There are some really nice sculpted elements on the jacket, too, and they provide a rather interesting look when viewed up close.
* Cassian comes with his distinctive blaster pistol, although it's a bit different than the one included Eadu version of the character. It's nicely molded in a dark metallic looking plastic and fits securely in the very cool holster on Cassian's right hip.
* It seems to be a weird trend with this line, specifically the Rogue One figures, but the tops of Cassian's boots don't match the bottoms. Bizarre, huh? The colors are off a bit. It's actually a bit more noticeable in person.
exact same figure as the standard release, which most people probably picked up either on Force Friday 2016 or as one of the SDCC 2016 exclusives, where it was also released. Yup, Hasbro has now released this figure three times and the film isn't even out yet. I'd love to have Jyn in her Imperial Ground Controller disguise, or in this same look without the jacket. Heck, had they included her blaster rifle, I'd be a little happier. This is just ridiculous, though.
For more Rogue One goodness, I've also reviewed the single boxed Imperial Death Trooper, the Eadu version of Captain Cassian Andor, and both the Eadu and Jedha versions of Sergeant Jyn Erso.
