This Galen Marek action figure was released in
2012 in The Vintage Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure 14 points of articulation and included
ten accessories (2 gauntlets, chest armor, 2 lightsaber hilts, 2 blue lightsabers, removable harness with belt, removable loincloth, removable back panel).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Jedi:
- This version of Starkiller is based on the appearance from the second video game released in The Force Unleashed series
- The blue lightsabers fit well into both hands
- The lightsaber hilts fit well into the hands, and they can be plugged into both belts
- The back panel (backpack? armor piece?) plugs firmly into a hole in the back of the figure
- Both, the harness and the loincloth can be removed and interchanged, which works surprisingly well
- It's tight to get them on and off, but it works and fits very well
- Having a second outfit with the figure let's you recreate either the look of Marek from the beginning of the game, or the look from towards the end of the game
- The chest armor is a great fit and can be put on or taken off the figure by popping the head off first (easily doable)
- Both gauntlets can be snapped onto the forearms, which works OK
- Starkiller has no balancing problems even in more dynamic poses
- The head sculpt is done very well
- The paint application on the figure mimics the appearance of the character's outfit from the video game very closely
- All in all, this is an extraordinarily well done figure, which is super articulated, has fantastic character likeness, comes with basically two outfits and a ton of accessories
The articulation details are as follows: ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, 2 swivel wrists, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees, 2 ball-jointed ankles
