Packaging - ***
Jorg comes on the same card as the rest of the new Star Wars Saga figures,
but with a special Celebration II insert. Seeing one carded won't be
nearly as rare as seeing a loose one though.
Sculpting - ***
It really does look like George, or at least how I suppose George thinks
he looks. It's sort of a cross between his younger, thinner self,
and his older, gray haired self. They certainly got the hair style
Paint - **
The paint ops on the body, helmet and accessories are all very good, with
clean lines and a fair amount of detail.
What hurts this score is the
terrible job I have seen on every face. The beards and moustaches
are usually crooked, sloppy and uneven. Considering that the face is
really the key here, it's unfortunate they didn't do a better job.
Articulation - **
Since this is the same basic body as the other rebel pilots, you've seen
this before. Neck, shoulders and hips don't give you a lot of posing
possibilities, but at least he stands well on his own.
Accessories - ***1/2
The accessories are really the best part of this figure.
George, uh, Jorg comes with a removable helmet, replica fighter with
stand, and blaster.
The blaster is fairly well
done, but without a holster it doesn't have a home. It does fit well
in his hand though.
The helmet fits on his head
fine, although in the package it seems they were all crooked and pushed
forward over his eyes. There's lots of detail on the helmet as well,
and it's nicely done.
The best accessory is the
small fighter replica. With nice paint ops and details, along with a
great little clear stand, it looks terrific.
There's also an background
insert, similar to the first sixteen figures in the Saga line.
Value - **1/2 to Bupkis
If you bought one at Celebration II, where they were $10, you'd be getting
the **1/2 stars. On the other hand, if you've had to pay $80 or
more, the value is bupkis. The only reason they are getting that
price is because of availability.
Of course, the theater
exclusive Jedi Luke went for over $100 each at one point, but now you can
find them for $40 if you're patient.
Overall - **1/2
If you paid $10 for him, he's a decent figure, and slightly amusing.
Otherwise, don't get too excited - remember, this is a George Lucas
figure, not someone that actually had screen time in the movie.
