Definitely one of my favourite figures from the CGI Clone Wars collection, Roron Corobb is certainly one of the most interesting looking creatures to have graced the toy line up. Many might recognise his species. There was a hammerhead in ' New Hope' who sat in the cantina. Toymaker Kenner made an action figure of him, simply called 'Hammerhead.' The figure was rather dull looking though and the colour scheme was wrong. Many years later, Hasbro produced their version of the same character, this time around he was christened Momaw Nadon and actually sported some better fatigues.
Roron Corobb is not to be confused with Momaw Nadon, despite looking similar. He still has the same hammerhead shaped neck, but this chap is a Jedi General. A wonderful colour job on his head and neck seems him take on a slightly more off-brown colour. The colours looks more like those you would find on a squid or a worm and suit him very well. Excellent texturing on his face gives him charm and intrigue and his neck has been sculptured really well, with a broad chunky abode about it.
His costume is typical understated Jedi, slightly off-white robes tied by a simple belt around his middle, he looks calm and collected and the robes seem to fall gracefully into place around his stocky guise. The top section overhangs his slacks, a bit like Luke Skywalker's very original costume. His hands and feet are alluring with wonderful shaped toes and fingers, looking distinctly alien. He stands up very well.
He comes with his very own lightsabre, which is different in colour to a lot of the lightsabres. This creamier colour is unique to Corobb and a welcome touch. He is poseable on all limbs so you can create your own poses and for under five pounds he has to be one of the most desirable characters in the range. Super all round!
