So this review of the "Endor Wave" rolls on and we're taking a look this week at probably the dullest of the wave... That's not to say that he isn't a figure people wanted though. Moff Jerjerrod was one of the Imperials that made many people's wishlists it seemed... So did Hasbro do him justice?
Well, in short I don't believe they did... In a recent Q&A it was asked by us here at JD, why exactly did you sculpt the face with a sneer, and the body with a wide leg stance in somewhat of an action pose? Moff Jerjerrod did none of these things in the film. He stood there, he took some **** from his superiors, he cowered a bit, but that was it. Oh and he kneeled some.
So Hasbro saw fit to beef up the figure with a more interesting look... I'm disappointed. Hasbro's creative license with figures is cook when it's fleshing out what Garindan's head looks like under that hood... Cool ****. Or what Greedo's holster looks like... Very neat.
But when they get fancy with a figure just because he's "too dull" for them, I have a problem with that... Moff Jerjerrod was the PERFECT opportunity for Hasbro to make a single, fairly poseable (add some knees) Imp. Officer sculpt that is GENERIC. Jerjerrod screams "generic". People would've bought it in droves had it had a neutral sculpt in every way, and some extra joints at the knees. Instant army builder for death star dioramas, instant custom fodder...
Hell Hasbro, you could've re-released him cast in black with different colors of hair and just said he's the vintage style "Imperial Commander" figure. Slap a new head on it and you've got an even better army builder...
Anyway, read the full review... Jerjerrod is unfortunately a flop to me, and one we'll most likely never see again. I'd be amazed if they revisited him anyway. I am a little dismayed they still think to go tot he "action pose" and stuff from time to time. Didn't 2002 teach you anything guys? Yech!
They can't all be winners folks, and this is proof positive of that.
