Grand Moff Tarkin, Admiral Piett is easily the most quotable of the Imperial officers so enjoy having Piett opine on bounty hunters, talk about older codes, or simply respond to Darth Vader. There's no end to the fun you'll have with Admiral Piett! Let's check this one out after the break...
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 wrists, and a
Accessories: Officer's cap and DL-21 blaster pistol.
Non-Scalper Price: $22-$25 dollars
* Here's a quick look at Admiral Piett next to Grand Moff Tarkin. Most of the Imperial officers use pieces from Tarkin and Piett is no exception. While the torsos have been reworked (to account for the code cylinders and plaque) the arms, legs, and waists seem to be the same.
* Admiral Firmus Piett is a shark looking figure. He's clad in the standard Imperial officer's uniform with rank plaque, code cylinders, and belt breaking up the grey. He's also wearing gloves to complete the look. While most Star Wars Black Series figures are completely unique sculpts, Hasbro had wisely been using the Imperial officer sculpts to crank out more figures in a shorter time. I, for one, am in favor of that.
* The headsculpt looks exactly like actor Kenneth Colley and is definitely a great example of the brilliance of Hasbro's work using the face printing technology. The level of detail on the sculpt, particularly around the eyes, is exceptional.
* Like General Veers, Admiral Piett includes a removable officer's cap. The cap looks great and fits extremely well. Sometimes removable hats don't look all that great in this scale but here it absolutely works.
* The articulation is excellent. While Firmus Piett mostly just stands around talking through viewscreens or checking out codes, it's nice to know he can join the
action if he needs to. Piett is sturdy and well made, so have fun and go
crazy with him.
* These officer's boots are shiny and intimidating. The Empire might be absolutely evil but they sure are snappy dressers.
* Also like General Veers, Admiral Piett includes a DL-21 blaster pistol
without the fancy muzzle. It looks great and seems to be the weapon Hasbro is giving to most of the Imperial officers. It's a great blaster design and it is tremendously well sculpted.
* If you look closely, you can see some paint slop on Piett's code cylinders and on his left arm. He still looks pretty swell overall but the work isn't as clean as I would have hoped.
Admiral Piett is a Good and a 1/2 figure and another solid entry in the Black Series. He's very well made but he doesn't have the cool extras like Tarkin's Interrogation Droid or General Veer's extra armor. He's also a few bucks more expensive since he is a online exclusive, so his price varies a bit. I'm still thrilled to have him and I'm loving having an expanding Empire, but he isn't as thrilling as some of the other releases, though. Still, Original Trilogy fans probably just can't resist this guy, right?
