We welcome Mr Wolfman, who could possibly be mistaken for the wookie Chewbacca from a distance. But no, this is Voolvif Monn. He was a Shistavanen Jedi Master and a wolfman who served as a Jedi General during the Clone Wars. He was a powerful and loyal fighter who rightfully earned his Jedi powers through genuine skill and prowess. Monn is part of the newer Clone Wars collection, so you won't see him in the older films. He has been made into an action figure by Hasbro, which is great because the furry characters are often the most visually interesting.
The figure is one of the best of the newer batch and I adore his chirpy looking face. There is a cartoon esque appeal to it, even though the savage look still comes through. His gnashing teeth are a expressive and ghoulish, while his eyes seem to hide dark secrets of the force! Hasbro have done his fur very well with a vivid level of texturing and articulation around his chops.
He sports a basic gown of armour, which is minimal yet practical. None of the Jedis wear fancy clothes and this toy echoes that sentiment. Monn has a bland looking tunic, but the colour scheme is accurate. What endears me to this figure is the unique pose. He has been given some truly buoyant leg movement, rather than the straight forward legs which have no sort of shape or pose about them. This really brings Monn to life.
As with all Jedis, he comes with a green lightsabre which can be removed or held in either paw. The best bet is to buy at auction sites, but boxed figures retail for about five pounds. This is one of the best of the newer creatures and he is one of only a few wolf creatures from the Star Wars saga, excepting Lak Sivrak from 'A New Hope.' Tremendous fun for collectors and children alike. Please not that the illustration here is actually for an Anakin, not Voolvif Monn!
