Photo Guide: Republic Commandos Fixer and Boss

The Republic Commando video game was a huge hit with Star Wars fans and gamers alike, so it’s great for them to finally receive some attention in the form of Galactic Heroes.  The first 2 members of Delta Squad to be created are the green-striped Fixer and the orange-trimmed Boss.  Both figures are impressive, and really stand out among the other Clones created in the line.

Photo Guide: Cad Bane and Aurra Sing

Now that the Christmas festivities have slowed down, we can return to the job of photographing some more Galactic Heroes!  This time we get a look at two bad bounty hunters, Cad Bane and Aurra Sing.  I’m really impressed with Cad Bane, he’s got some great presence, though he does suffer from some rough silver paint application.   Aurra Sing looks great, but she has zero articulation except at the neck, which is a little disappointing.

Photo Guide: Padme & Senate Security Clone

Next in 2010′s Wave 1 is Snow Bunny Padme and the Senate Security Clone Trooper.  Both figures look fantastic, enjoy.

Photo Guide: Bomb Squad Clone & Super Battle Droid

We continue looking at 2010′s Wave 1 of 2-packs with the Clone Trooper (Bomb Squad) and Super Battle Droid.  Enjoy!

Photo Guide: Anakin and Ahsoka in Space

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m going to start up my Photo Guide, one pack at a time!

Today we look at the squabbling duo from The Clone Wars, Anakin and Ahsoka.  This set is from 2010′s Wave 1, where we see them in their Space outfits.  I’ve supplied a generic shot of the package, courtesy of Hasbro, since I had already opened before I started my photography.

Photo Guide: Slave I

I think it’s safe to say that the set I’ve been most excited to get my hands on is Boba Fett’s Slave I, so with it finally in hand, it will make a great start for my Photo Guide.

The Slave I Cinema Scene was released in late 2009 and includes 3 pieces:  Boba Fett,  Han in Carbonite, and of course the Slave I itself.  Boba Fett is the ESB version, meaning he has green gauntlets, but he is a resculpt from the previously released version.  Han is also a new version — the carbonite block is only 1/4″ thick compared to the older 1/2″ thick one.  Fett sits nicely in the cockpit and can be held in place with the footpeg. When the wings are rotated, the seat rotates as well, and as long as Fett’s blaster is tucked in, there’s no problem performing the rotation.  Han in Carbonite actually slips in through the bottom of the ship and it’s a pretty tight fit.  I found that sliding him in head first prevented him from getting jammed in there and he was still reasonably removable.  The other bit of articulation on the Slave I is the guns — they’ll also rotate depending on which way you want the ship facing.

If you open the packaging carefully, you’ll get a background of Cloud City for display.  It should even last a little while for kids to enjoy it for play purposes, though of course the cardboard will have a fairly limited life.

Overall, I have to say it’s a fantastic set.

Quick summary of included pieces:

  • Boba Fett – ESB (green gauntlets), bent arm – new sculpt
  • Han in Carbonite – 1/4″ thick – new sculpt
  • Slave I
