Welp, Celebration IV is wrapped (wrapping actually, for some) up, and what better way to unwind than to read my reviews, right? Right... So, up for examination this week is the... The Galactic Marine
Clicky To Read Review!
A figure with much talk buzzing around him even before his release, any Clone of this caliber is gonna be hot. Needless to say, your army building may have been difficult thus far, as he's one of the first of this assortment to disappear. The new sculpt, the articulation, the paint aps, the removable helmet, the gear... Hasbro has a doozey of a figure on their hands. One of the finer incarnations of the Republic's forces.
Not without his flaws though, as the Republic Marine's got a weird design flaw at the knees that make his poseability a little difficult (just slightly) for standing straight up and down, and his weapon is beyond rubbery. Hasbro most definitely cheaped out on the plastic this time, and that sucks considering how good a job they did with this rifle's sculpt originally in the Evolutions packs.
Is it a deal breaker? Well I'll save the drum roll and simply say no, but there are some flaws there... Read the full review to check out what worked and what Hasbro could improve. I'd buy this figure again with a new (older) headsculpt on it, better accessory, maybe different battle damage, and a cloth Kama... Wouldn't you?
