The Star Wars toy universe is vast so choosing which ones you want to get is an arduous task, especially as each figure seems to come in at about seven pounds. People just cannot afford to buy every figure these days, so you need to weigh up which ones are the most worthy. So A Rebel Trooper, marking the Star Wars 30th anniversary...how important is this figure?
I am generally pleased with the overall package on offer here. The packaging looks smart with a good illustration and stylish artwork throughout. The toy itself is sturdy, made from plastic and shaped in the mould of the infamous Rebel Troopers from the films. It has been adapted slightly for this release though, so is not identical to Hasbro's original designs on the figure.
Standing at about four inches, his uniform is crafted well and the colour matches are pretty good. I love the greys and whites and blues, which all compliment each other. His torso is bulky and his helmet is shaped very nicely, covering his head and offering protection from gunfire.
The slacks have been coloured well and are offset with brown boots which look smart and accurate. You will be able to pose him at all the joints, allowing new poses to be struck. The figure also comes with a small blaster and a collectible coin. Is he worth buying though? In all honesty, not the most exciting figure available and really an excuse to redesign someone for the anniversary. That said, his price has held steady so you might be able to pick up a boxed one for around the five pound mark. Maybe one for Star Wars purists and not for the casual buyer though.
