Want to see just how bad a job Hasbro can do when they take repaints the one step that goes "too far"? Well look no further than......
Yes, we're taking a look at one of the "final 12" this week with Commander Gree (Battle Gear)
. The good commander who met his demise at the hands of everyone's little green friend, Yoda, is here and I think it's pretty well set that everyone wants a new version of this figure already.
Amazing isn't it?
Inaccuracies abound and I didn't even touch on all of them in the review I think... Namely the holster I forgot to mention because I didn't have a good image of him showing the little pistol and holster on his hip. Damn, I'm slacking.
But yeah I'm really disappointed in Gree, couldn't you tell? Bad paintjob (and no the variation on the visor doesn't fix this guy), the lack of "suspenders", lack of holster and other details... Hasbro just needs to quit stretching their budget with this figure. They easily could have delivered a repaint of the SA Clone sculpt as an Utapau Grunt or even an "EU" Clone (people would have bought it and you know it. Green Commanders and Black Pilots sell out and so would a Green Grunt) Trooper. Instead we get the most half-hearted of Commanders, and one of everyone's favorites from ROTS.
I've found Gree makes a neat quasi-EU grunt as I leave hope for a "real" Gree figure. He's not bad then when you think of him as a Trooper instead of the Commander, but he still is lacking in a big way.
Hasbro... you got some 'splainin' to do...
