Packaging - ***
Actually, one of the better Hasbro packages I've opened up. Very few
twisty ties, and you can get things out without any damage if you like.
The box is fairly sturdy, but the top of the window will tend to get
dinged. You can see everything well, and the box graphics are good.
Sculpting - ***
The sculpt on the B-Wing is very good, and the battle damage actually
looks good. The spinning cockpit works great, and is very smooth.
The best part of this is the pre-applied stickers on the
interior. They look ten times better than if you were applying them
I don't have an original to compare, but it looks an awful lot like the
same mold. However, one of the legs pops down from what I believe
used to be the battery compartment, and the other leg drops from the wing
- the original didn't have landing gear, did it?
Articulation - ***
I'm stretching the definition of articulation here. Rather than just
count the figure, which has the usual neck, shoulder, and hips, but the
ship itself has moving parts.
The wings snap out cleanly and quickly with the twist of an engine, and
another button snaps out the landing gear. As I already mentioned,
the cockpit spins freely and smoothly.
