Pretty awesome turn around of the upcoming Ahsoka Tano from the Star Wars Black Series 6″. I just saw this posted by the figure’s creator on his blog. You can check it out and a bunch of other cool looks at this figure and some other stuff he’s done here: http://www.coroflot.com/rpbennett/Digital-Sculpture
So my Action figures finally got here!
Huzza! Behold how my Captain Plasma towers over Rey and some of my
other action figures. (Tom Servo just randomly shows up whenever
there are that many awesome ladies in one spot).
The first thing I noticed about the Rey
action figure is she is really well articulated and they did a great
job hiding the joints. I’m guessing all black sires figures are like
that; but since this is my first, I am impressed. Her wrists twist and move up and down, same with her head. That’s way
more movement than any of my other action figures have. She is also
adorable! Rey does have a hard time standing up on her own but I
figured out how to use the staff to balance her. BB-8 is super cute
and his head moves around, sadly there is no thumbs up lighter
The Captain Plasma figure is heavy.
Like the first thing I thought when I picked her up is “I could
kill a man* with this.” My Malgus statue is well made, with lots
of detail, but his potential to inflict blunt force trauma is sadly
limited. I understand that this is not a metric most people use to
judge the worth of things, but that’s because most people suck. All
I’m saying is if you try and break into my apartment, while I’m
there, maybe wear a helmet. Any ways Plasma isn’t not quite as well
articulated as Rey, and has a hard time standing up on her own.
Unlike Rey however, she comes with a stand.
Over all I must say I am very pleased
with my purchase. Captain Plasma may have found a permanent home next
to my keyboard, judging me.
*It wouldn’t have to be a man. It could
be anyone really, regardless of what gender they do or do not
identify with. The Elite sires Captain Plasma, much like death it’s
self, does not discriminate.
You don’t know me, but for a good chunk of my life, I’ve known you through your Star Wars 3 ¾” action figure line. Once upon a time, I was a die hard collector, buying at least one (and often times multiples) of everything in that line. Then I started college and didn’t want women thinking I was too weird, and so my collecting went on the back burner until I learned to accept myself…
The Rey action figure has just come out here, and my five young cousins, all boys, are over the moon that they finally have the main character! It makes me so happy to see them so excited about a female action figure <3 they are the cutest!
