Here's my review of this figure:Articulation:
This figure, who really doesn't do much in the movie, has been given a very generous 12 points of articulation, 2 points shy of standard super articulation. This is very very cool, and his poseability is very good thanks to this. Sculpt:
Our miner has a very slight sculpting problem, and that is his legs are somewhat pre-posed for the amount of articulation they have been given. However, I'm fine with this considering that our insectoid friend really doesn't do much else in the movie. The rest of the sculpt is extremely detailed, and looks like it could be fresh out of the movie. The big H really nailed this one considering the very limited screentime of the character. Accessories:
This flea-ridin' bug has everyhing he needs to go mining. He has a very nice lava-ladle full of lava (how appropriate!). Also, the coin is pretty cool, too! I don't know what JJ will think of him having only one accessory though, that'll sure be interesting. Paint Aps/Deco:
Excellent! His armor is scorched from walking around in the lava (heck, your armor would be, too!) and the clothing is accurate. Value:
It is a great buy! A very interesting character, a well-executed sculpt and paint-job, and one of the coolest accessories churned out of Patwucket in recent years (nowhere near as cool as the gorg, though, that'll probably ALWAYS be my favorite accessory). And a cool coin! Total:
Paint Aps/Deco: 10/10
GO OUT AND BUY YOURSELF A MUSTAFAR LAVA MINER! You will not regret it, very enjoyable figure! I think he has really disappeared in this wave in people's minds, as he is a casemate of sought-after figures such as Galactic Marine, Super Battle Droid, and McTrooper. But he's really great, once you get to know him. Who needs a stinkin' Galactic Marine when you've got a bug that rides a flea and scoops up lava for a living? Not me!
This figure is a 'hot buy!' He's gonna be a hot buy because he's cool! Heh, get it?...No? Oh well...
