Bail Organa is not a name you hear mentioned that much, despite making an appearance in the newer batch of Star Wars films. Bail Organa lived on the peaceful planet of Alderaan, which was nuked by Grand Moff Tarkin in the film 'A New Hope' in 1977. He and his wife might have been shortlived but they left behind a legacy in the form of Princess Leia Organa.
Bail has been made into two different action figures and in this guise, he is ready for battle. The other outfit is far ore regal and pompous, whereas this one ignites play value and makes him look like a hero!
Bail's face looks rather like Lando crossed with Ming The Merciless. His slicked back hair is a disaster fashion wise, but has been captured nicely, as his neatly trimmed facial hair. He could easily pass for the next member of Village People.
Bail wears a tight fitting grey outfit, which is verging on the kinky I think. His black belt offsets this, as do the sexy looking knee high boots. The main attraction is the flowing grey robe which hangs over his shoulder though. This can give him protection from enemy eyes and also from harsh weathers. I love the movement and texturing of this piece and it really enhances what could have been a bland design.
Bail comes with a weapon which he can grip and you can also pose the figure at the head, arms and legs. The question remains, is he worth getting. Considering boxed versions have come down to about a pound in price, I would say yes. Not an awe inspiring toy, but a cheap purchase to help bulk out a collection.
