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.
