Tusken Raider
« on: February 16, 2003, 08:55 PM »
Okay I bought the Tusken Raider w/ Camp base the other day, but had to return it as it was broke (paint dried in the joint and thus the arm broke off :() and there wasn't another.

Likeness 10/10
Nothing wrong here, looks like a Tusken.

Articulation 8/10
He reminds me a bit of Eeth Koth in that his wrists/elbows are articulated, thus making up for the lack of knee-articulation. 8 points total, so he's above average.

Base 7/10
I dunno, I guess I can judge it once there's something to attatch to it... It's not bad, I love not having to buy a stand or prop him against something, but it looks incomplete.

Action Feature 10/10
Magnet head works just fine, may get knocked off on accident from time to time, but its way better than a big peg w/ crappy "kicking action".

Overall -
If you see him, and you like Tuskens, buy him. He's got a weak gaffi stick accessory, but regardless, he's a great figure all around. Nothing cooler than slicing off a Tusken head.

Nice review. To bad it was damaged.
I'm sure you will find another.  ;)

I haven't found anything in months in town, I found the Tusken in ATL, which was equally dry save for that 1 wave (they had the new Destroyers x2, and I think they had x2 Teebo's, didnt get it though).

Many Tusken Raiders have been made, but this one has got to be the finest one made yet.  The pose is a very aggressive one, where he is in an attacking position with his Gaffi stick.  He looks great standing on the included base, and one of these days I would love to put a little light underneath the camp fire.  His head stays on nicely with a strong magnet, and looks great even off his body.  Hasbro did a great job on this figure, and I'm hoping Hasbro makes more Tusken Raiders to add to my collection of them.

Rating = A

Check out the pictures of it here.
