Heavy Battle Droid from Star Wars: Battle Front II (I reviewed it Saturday) and the other is Jedi Knight Revan from Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Revan has long been a popular character so it's understandable why GameStop and Hasbro would want to offer up a second version of him for the market. Unfortunately, Jedi Knight Revan suffers from GameStop's new price hike: If you preordered him he was $24.99, but in stores now he's marked as $29.99 (though GameStop's online store has him on sale at $24.99). This version of Revan is largely a repaint of the 2016 release, though the repaint really does change the look of the figure. Let's check out Jedi Knight Revan after the break and see how he turned out...
Height: 6 inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double hinged knees, swivel thighs, balljointed
hips, balljointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge
elbows, swivel/hinge wrist, and a balljointed head.
Accessories: Lightsaber with removable blade.
Non-Scalper Price: $25-$30 dollars
*On the left is Jedi Knight Revan while on the right is the previously released Darth Revan. Both figures use the same molds and come with the same purple lightsaber (Jedi Revan only has one lightsaber) but the robes are different. Jedi Revan doesn't have a cape and his robe isn't ripped and torn like Darth Revan's. Articulation and sculpt wise, they have all the same positives and negatives, so this is going to be a review with a lot of reused text from the previous reviews. Deal with it!
* Revan's sculpt is quite impressive. The paintwork is sharp and there
is quite a bit of interesting detail on this guy. The chest armor actually looks better on Jedi Knight Revan since it's bronze colored with a nice wash to bring out all of the details. I really think Jedi Knight Revan might be the more interesting looking figure. He kind of reminds me of one of the Jedi Temple Guards from The Clone Wars.
* It was tough to make out all of the details on Revan's helmet on the evil version of the figure since both the helmet and the hood were so dark, but it's actually easier here. The helmet looks very cool with a lot of painted details very neatly applied.
* Rather than a battered and torn cape and robe, Jedi Knight Revan has a very neatly tailored khaki robe that matches the rest of his outfit. It's nicely tailored and looks great in this scale.
* Overall, Revan has some really nice articulation. Even with his
waist robes his leg motion isn't hindered too much. All of the
joints below the neck work perfectly and allow you to out this guy in
some pretty wicked cool poses. He also feels very solid and sturdy,
which seems to be par for the course with this line.
* This version of Revan only includes his purple lightsaber. This is not only a cool looking
blade but the hilt is incredible. It's very unique and has some teeny, tiny paint details.
* The lightsaber blade is removable, like most others in the line, but the pegs feel so flimsy that I don't recommend that you do it. Seriously, I wish everyone just came with lightsaber with a blade and a separate hilt piece.
