The Confirmed Epic Podcast) but at this point I think it's probably tied with Rogue One as my favorite Star Wars film of the Disney era. Solo may take the advantage, however, because it definitely seems like a film I could watch at a moments notice whereas I kind of have to be in the right mood to watch Rogue One. Anyways, let's talk about Qi'ra. Played by Emilia Clarke, Qi'ra was definitely one of the unknowns going into this film. We knew Han Solo, we knew Lando Calrissian, and we knew Chewbacca, but Qi'ra? Completely new character! I'll share some thoughts about the character at the end of the review but for now I'm going to focus on the figure. This figure represents Qi'ra in her outfit from Corellia which is essentially just the first few minutes of the movie. It wouldn't have been my first choice for a figure of the character but it turned out well. Let's check her out after the break...
Height: 5 1/2 inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double hinged knees, swivel thighs, balljointed
hips, balljonted waist, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows,
swivel/hinge wrists, and a double balljointed head.
Accessories: Monlitzer S-195 double-barreled blaster pistol
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* Qi'ra's outfit is interesting. I've heard some comments from collectors that don't think it looks very "Star Wars-ish" but considering the vast array of outfits we've seen over the years, that seems like an odd thing. I kind of like it. Don't get me wrong, I like Qi'ra's other outfit better, but this definitely looks like something you'd see in the Outlander Club on Coruscant. The outfit consists of a red shirt, a black skirt of some sort over black leggings, and a heavier coat. The paintwork is overall quite nice and the red adds quite a bit of color to the costume.
* Hasbro does a nice job here with another face-printed headsculpt. In the film this version of Qi'ra is supposed to be younger (around 18) so the face does seem to be quite a bit more youthful looking. The hair is also very different from what we see later on and Hasbro captured it well, too. The resemblance to Emilia Clarke is quite stunning.
* Qi'ra has lots of little extras on her costume such as a cool little bracelet on her left wrist, a compass bracelet on her right (that's what the Official Guide calls it), and some lock-picking spikes in the loops on her belt. I love little extra like these and Hasbro typically manages to include them.
* Qi'ra's skirt is covered with a layer of something white. I think this is actually supposed to be the remains of salt from the briny water of Corellia's oceans. It's a cool paint application that adds a little bit of extra ruggedness to the figure.
* Qi'ra as the same excellent articulation scheme that most other figures from the Black Series have. While the elbows are a bit more limited than usual due to her heavier coat sleeves, everything else works just fine. The skirt has high slits on the sides meaning she can pose her legs largely uninhibited.
* The paintjob on the fur collar of Qi'ra's jacket looks great but there is quite a bit of slop in a few places on the jacket itself.
This is the first figure of Qi'ra I've reviewed. For more figures from Star Wars: The Black Series, check out the following:
