Here is another of those blink and you'll miss it characters from the newer Star Wars films. The legendary Saesee Tiin. Saesee Tiin was a male Iktotchi Jedi Master and also served as a Jedi Council member. Tiin held an important role as a General in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, but met an untimely death at the hands of the evil Darth Sideous.
I am delighted that he has been turned into an action figure, as he is one of the most visually gripping characters from the newer batch of films. His squid like head calls to mind the grim Bib Fortuna from 'Return Of The Jedi.' The head has been moulded really well with an old, slightly sneering face. I love the way the face seems to have years of Jedi experience etched all over it. A great use of colours here make his ruptured skin come to life.
His robes are glorious with tremendous flowing movement down them. The cloak really has buoyancy about it and he looks like he is in the middle of a Jedi battle. The older Kenner cloaks were lifeless and made of vinyl, which was prone to snagging. This newer cloak is sturdy and bulky and looks so much better.
He comes with a bright green lightsabre which he can grip in either hand, a slimline weapon and quite delicate so be careful not to snap it. You can mould him into new poses at the head, arms and legs which allows for new play scenarios. The only part of the toy that I do not like is the white carded packaging, which fails to capture the magic and mystery of the older Kenner black boxes, Despite this quibble, you can buy him boxed for about five pounds and loose figure go at auction sites for about a pound, making him afforadable and an asset to a busy Star Wars line up.
