So when Hasbro was kicking around 30AC figure photos, I don't know many that didn't excite me in some way... R2 perhaps, but even Obi-Wan was pretty cool looking. The early photos of this week's reviews, despite the character's background nature, were still exciting... I'm not so sure the figure lived up to my hopes though.

The Mustafar Lava Miner
gets the scrutiny this week in my reviews... He's neat, he fills a hole, but he's far from "ideal" action figure. I'd say he ranks as the 3rd most likely pegwarmer of the Wave 1 30AC figures unfortunately, despite being all new, and an alien. The Miner's articulation and pre-posed leg sculpting are his major flaws... His articulation isn't horrid mind you, it just doesn't give the figure any benefits as it should. In comes the leg sculpting, and well you have some problems with poseability. Essentially he's forever locked in a "mining" hunched over pose... That sucks.
Still, he's new, he fills a hole, he fills a purpose on display... Hasbro just didn't deliver greatness with this one. Check out the review to see the flaws, but also the highlights. There's some cool stuff to him like the accessories and such. He's one of those guys that you just buy and never really care much about after you get him *cough*Lushros Dofine*cough*.
