Oh Evolutions... How Do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
Yeah, all good things must come to an end, and in this case I've rounded out reviewing the Evolutions Assortment
by taking my usual in-depth look at the last in the series, The Evolutions: Sith Lords
The set is fantastic from top to bottom... Darth Maul's the weakest in the set, but when your weakest is only that way because of angle-cut elbows, you really can't argue a whole lot. Dooku and Palpatine both chime in as super articulated incarnations of their characters, and Maul does too besides his elbow joints.
With lots of softgoods accessories like skirt extensions, capes, and robes, the trio are quite poseable.
As with the usual though, some extra accessories or more neutral headsculpts would have been appreciated, but not necessary really. Check out the review though to see what all hit and missed with this, be prepared to read for a little while though, and of course come back and chime in with your thoughts.
To me, it's probably the best set overall out of the Evolutions series... Quality in this set wasn't matched by the other two, so while the characters weren't necessarilly the most looked forward to, the execution was quite nice and shows Hasbro stepping out with their best foot forward in action figures. Big ups to Hasbro for another knock-out in the short-lived series...
Now will they make more? The question hangs there unanswered and nobody seems to want to ask Hasbro if they're considering this for the future. Personally, if I had their ear you know I'd be nagging them about MORE Evolutions figures folks! You know me, ever-persistant and all that crap.
