Some more intriguing aliens from the Star Wars universe are the Polis Massan aliens. They are peaceful creatures who mean no harm and once again you could be forgiven for not having heard of them. Hasbro have produced an action figure which will please hardcore collectors though, as it is very true to form.
The first thing you will notice is the inquisitive looking head. It has a rather primitive alien look about it and is also quite cute. Basic facial features are surrounded by a sleek looking purple head piece. Hollow looking eyes gaze longingly at you and the rest of the face is devoid of much detail. The overall look of the body is a graceful one, with a slender frame and soft features. The costume is not that interesting to look at, but the colour schemes have been captured accurately and the deep colours are vivid.
The figure has been given some pleasing touches, like the dainty purple hands which look well balanced and well groomed. The same goes for the feet, which look precise and guarded.
Polis is given play value thanks to moveable limbs, this includes the head, arms and legs, so you can create a variety of poses and positions. Unfortunately, I am not sure what kind of scenario you could shape for this alien, maybe you could have it as a background creature in the middle of a battle scene, but the alien just looks too gentle and timid to engage in a fully fledged fight.
The price is pretty good though, a Polis will cost you around the five pound mark as new and they are quite widely available. A fine addition to the toy range and an interesting looking alien.
