Compare this Galen Marek figure
Galen Marek (Starkiller) in his Ceremonial Outfit was released in 2008 as part of an Evolution 3-pack in the 30th Anniversary Collection - together with 2 other versions of him. The set was later repacked in 2009's Legacy Collection. Galen Marek is the main character in The Force Unleashed video game - and he is seen wearing many different outfits - with the Ceremonial Outfit being a bonus outfit - which can be unlocked.
Marek is super articulated with 14 joints - but unfortunately Hasbro decided to give the figure swivel instead of ball-joints in the elbows. Other swivel joints can be found in both forearms - the waist and both legs. The neck - both shoulders - knees and ankles are ball-jointed. The Jedi stands pretty well on his own without the need for a stand. The lightsaber - and the lightsaber hilt fit very well into Starkiller's left hand - but they are both very likely to fall out of his right. The hilt can be stowed away in a non-removable holster - which is located on the right side of the waist. It's a very tight fit - and you might have to pull hard to get it out - and push it hard to get it in. The hard-plastic hood is easily removable and just sits on top of the head. It's a good fit and covers the entire head well. The figure has two soft-goods cloths hanging from both arms which can also be removed.
Starkiller is kept in a pristine condition without any weathering on the figure. Basically - the only colors you find on the outfit is brown - and off-white on the upper body - a lighter white on the soft-goods skirt and some gray colors no the forearms. The mold is nicely done - and the face looks pretty close to what Sam Witwer - the actor who portrayed Galen Marek - looks like. The face sculpt is also very different from other Galen Marek figures in that it shows a "happy/good version" of him with a different hair style. All in all - this Galen Marek in Ceremonial Outfit is a good figure - which should please fans of The Force Unleashed video game.
