Action Figure Review: Garazeb Orrelios from Star Wars Hero Mashers by Hasbro
Height: 6 inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge knees, swivel/hinge thighs, swivel hips, swivel shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, and a swivel/hinge neck.
Accessories: Bo-rifle and capture claw.
Non-Scalper Price: $12-$15 dollars
* I'm definitely starting to repeat myself here but, for the most part, these are fun, durable action figures. They're fun to play with, the mashing feature of being able to remove the lower legs, thighs, forearms, and head to combine with other figures is entertaining, and they are quite sturdy.
* I have to say that Zeb quite properly has the best accessories of any figure in this line. He comes not only with a cool, functional capture claw that can fit into the various portholes covering the figure but he also has an extended version of his bo-rifle, the traditional weapon of the Lasan Honor Guard. The bo-rifle is folded out into it's melee combat mode where it functions as a staff like weapon. It has a plug so it can also be attached to any porthole on the figure. I love the purplish plastic electrical bursts on the ends! Seeing this really makes me hope we get a Magnaguard at some point in this line.
* I love this sculpt! While the design aesthetic of this line depicts the characters in a more stylized manner, that's not really a big difference for the Rebels cast. Zeb looks really, really close to his Rebels appearance which is just fantastic. His outfit is nicely detailed and his facial expression is just perfect. While I can't wait until Zeb finally makes it into the 6 inch scaled Black series, this is actually a nice piece for Zeb fans on its own.
* The only problem I really have with this figure is the same problem I have with every other figure in this line: The swivel shoulders. Why oh why does the figure have useful swivel hinges everywhere except the shoulders! It makes no sense whatsoever!
I've reviewed a few other Hero Mashers sets if you want to see more of what this line has to offer:

Jedi Speeder & Anakin Skywalker
Luke Skywalker Vs. Darth Vader
