Gonna take a look at one of the April 2nd launch figures this week as we dissect Tarfful (Firing Bowcaster)
from the Revenge of the Sith line.
He's not Hasbro's prettiest effort from ROTS unfortunately, and given the child-factor in the Wookiee figure's popularity, I'd think it would've been in Hasbro's better interests to have made these higher quality figures. For instance the #43 falls over rather easily and lacks articulation some. Tarfful lacks even MORE articulation than the #43 and that's just a shame given that the figure's legs (both of these figure's legs actually) twist but don't bend. If you're gonna make the joint/separate molds, do it right ya know?
Irregardless he suits and likely isn't one I could see Hasbro redoing anytime soon. He'll make most collectors content to just stand there, but I envisioin him doing a little battling and pulling of people's arms from their sockets and all that. A nicer toy simply could've come of this figure but Hasbro chose to cheap-out on this one so just check out the full review to see what makes him a nice enough statue and what makes him a less-than-fun figure to play (pose) with.
