I gotta admit, Garindan's not bad... I still am always baffled by swiveling boot articulation but no knees... I mean, what's the point? It's the same as ankle articulation but no knees.
Either way though, Garindan has features VOTC/VTSC Han's both should've had, a separate legstrap for the pistol holster. I love that...
Too bad the Han's don't have it because that's perfect.
I like that they re-used Tessek's gun. I don't mind pistol re-uses like that and that's a gun we haven't seen again since Tessek I believe. So that's pretty cool I think... The lack of knees sucks, but the inclusion of a cloth cape is great to me. I'm surprised they ran with that. Not often they use cloth on basic figures afterall.
And the communicator on the belt? That's just amazing detail.
Now we have a communicator accessory for a hoped for future Luke Stormtrooper resculpt... He has to come with that.
It's nice to see that Garindan's arm articulation is on-par with what the basic line's standards should be too. He's a step up from Momaw who lacks a LOT of articulation.
Oh and the headsculpt is great... One flaw beyond the knees though is the goggles don't come off.
I'm a little bummed by that because I'd hoped to see a complete Garindan sculpt there... Be neat to see hte species' looks without the goggles.
Anyway, Garindan may be my favorite in the wave... It's a figure that REALLY needed a resculpt too, unlike Momaw who I honestly could've lived with what we have, especially given that they didn't improve it beyond the sculpt details. Sculpts great, articulation's just excuseless though... It's not a matter of what these characters do, but what kind of toys they should be... Hasbro's still years behind other companies with this line, so that's what's disappointing me.
Garindan's on my positives list though, I like that one.
