Cassian Andor figure is also given the (Eadu) designation, so Jyn at least has some company. I'm really excited to see K-Mart back in the exclusive game this time around as I really liked both the Kylo Ren and Rey they offered for The Force Awakens. I actually ordered this figure through K-Mart's site to store feature which proved to be very easy to use. No shipping costs and the figure was ready in just a few days. Let's take a closer look at Jyn Erso in her Eadu duds after the break...
Height: 5 3/8ths inches
ankles, boot swivels, double hinged knees, swivel thighs, balljointed
hips, balljointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge
elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, hinged neck, and a balljointed head.
Accessories: Helmet, pistol, E-11 blaster, cylinder, breath mask, and environmental base.
Non-Scalper Price: $25 dollars
* This version of Jyn Erso shares a number of pieces with the figure I reviewed yesterday (legs, right hand, and torso) which means it also has the same great articulation. Jyn can take a number of combat positions, even holding her E-11 blaster with two hands.
* Jyn has a different headsculpt from the standard figure and while I don't like this one as much, it still looks pretty good while fitting into the Star Wars: The Black Series aesthetic. Jyn looks a bit harsher here and her hair is pressed down a bit due to her combat helmet.
* Jyn's cloak has a really nice drybrushing effect that gives it a dirty, worn look to it. It really adds a lot of detail to the figure, something that's always a plus.
* Here's a look at Jyn's outfit from the front. To achieve the effect of this being a combat poncho or a parka of sorts, the main body of the garment is a separate piece permanently affixed over the standard figure body. The sleeves are nice and large, making this look like a somewhat bulky outfit designed to help keep out the elements.
* Jyn's blaster pistol is very cool. As far as I know it is yet
unidentified ( I cannot wait for the Rogue One visual dictionary!) but
it has a very cool connection to the blaster pistol of another famous rogue:
It resembles a German WW2 military pistol. While Han Solo's blaster is
based on a Mauser C96, Jyn's appears to be based on a Luger P-O8. This
pistol looks like it could pack a hefty punch.
* Jyn has a holster for her blaster and it's really cool. It's an actual
belt that rests over her hips and hands down her right hip. It's looks
awesome and works perfectly.
* I love this helmet. It's fits on Jyn's head perfectly and just looks really cool. There are some great paint applications on here, too.
* Sergeant Jyn Erso comes a BlasTech E-11 that I'm sure she acquired from some hapless Imperial. What's cool is that not only is this a
new sculpt but it features some sort of sensor or target designator on
the barrel. Lots of the Rogue One blasters have these designators, so I'm
wondering if this is a feature we'll see on the weapons in Rogue One.
* While we don't know anything about what Eadu refers to yet (probably a planet with a hostile environment) it appears that Jyn needs to strap on a breath mask at some point to navigate it. Her mask is molded in a soft, translucent orange plastic with a black strap. It looks extremely similar to the Roamer-6 masks Han Solo keeps in the Millennium Falcon. The strap is a bit large for Jyn's head but it fits on nicely when she's wearing her helmet.
* I have no idea what this cylinder that can hang on this hook on Jyn's bandolier is. My guess is that it's an explosive of some sort; perhaps a larger, cylindrical thermal detonator. It's a nice sculpt and I love how she can actually tote it around, but right now it's a complete mystery. I can't imagine this being Death Star plans, can you?
* The staple of these deluxe K-Mart exclusive sets seems to be an oversized diorama piece that connects together with another figure down the road. Jyn comes with what we can only assume is a craggy bit of rocky terrain. I love the look of this piece as that sculpt is really sharp, the paint gives it a richer look, and there are two indentations with pegs for Jyn's feet to attach. I wonder what figure will eventually attach to this base?
* While I like the fact that Hasbro used a softer material to replicate the bulky look of a ponch or parka, it does make the various details adorning Jyn's outfit look a bit soft and underdeveloped. I wish things were a bit sharper because there seems to be a lot of cool elements here.
