Compare this Nrin Vakil figure
This Nrin Vakil figure was released in 2009 - in a Walmart exclusive comic 2-pack together with an Ibtisam figure. Nrin Vakil was never seen in any of the movies and is based on the X-Wing Rogue Squadron comic books.
The figure has 14 joints - featuring ball-joints in the neck - shoulders - elbows - waist - knees and ankles! The only swivel joints are in the under arms and the legs. Hasbro included two accessories with the figure - a blaster and a removable helmet. The blaster fits well into Nrin Vakil's right hand - but sits very loosely in the left. The helmet doesn't cover the entire head due to the alien's head shape - but it snaps-on nicely and is a perfect fit. The paint application in the Quarren's facial area is superb - with very nicely done shades of brownish/reddish colors - which add a more realistic look. The paint job on the helmet is well done as well without any smudges or any colors looking off.
All things considered - this Nrin Vakil figure is another top release. It's a super articulated figure of a character from the expanded universe which has not been released before. If you need support for your X-Wing Rogue Squadron figures - you don't want to miss this one!
Ibtisam and Nrin Vakil seem destined to be enemies: Ibtisam is a Mon Calamari - and Vakil is a Quarren - two species that have been foes for centuries. Yet an unlikely friendship evolves on a mission to Malrev. Ibitsam finds herself becoming attached to the stoic Nrin Vakil - while Nrin's initial animosity turns to respect for the courageous Mon Calamari - proving that the bonds of friendship can rise above the blind hostility of the past.
