Sure, the figure over all is a dissapointment, but it could be a lot worse. At least his figure isn't a true army builder.

I agree that he's nice to look at...which is really all I do with them anyway.  So, not a huge deal.  The poseability etc suck though

Commander Bacara
« Reply #17 on: August 23, 2005, 06:50 PM »
I was finally able to hunt down Commander Bacara and now that I have him in my grubby paws, It's time for a review.

Sculpt/Features: 9/10
The sculpt on Bacara was very well done, you could tell the Hasbro designers spent a lot of time on this baby. The helmet looks very snowtrooper-ish which is a big plus. The skirt/kilt thingy is well sculpted and and snaps on and off most nicely. Bacara has the same "quick draw" feature as the #6 Clone and works about the same, squeeze the legs, you know the drill.

Articulation: 7/10
Other people have said how bad the articulation on Bacara is but I'm not a big stickler for articulation so that's how it gets its 7/10 rating.

Paint: 9/10
The paint was done nicely, very crisp and clean. The only sloppy area on mine was on the belt but only ever so slightly.

Accesories: 10/10
Ya can't ask for much more in Bacara's accesories, you get the shorter blaster rifle, a heavy blaster rifle, removable kilt, and a whole lotta cold, jedi-killin' attitude. The short blaster rifle is basicley the same as previous versions, and frankly I prefer this to the heavy rifle. The kilt is all new and a good sculpt.

Pricing: 10/10
$6 at most retailers.

Overall: 9/10
Bacara is a good addition to your Imperial Forces and beside the so-so articulation, definatly worth the Lincoln and Washington. I don't think we'll be seeing his snow clones under his command anytime soon, but this is the next best thing.

I'm too lazy to take my own, so looky here:

Commander Bacara's figure exists just to show that there are worse clone figures than the AT-TE Gunner.

Those custom figures look awesome. If I can get my hands on a second Bacara, I'm definitely using it for the parts.

This figure reminds me of those talks you get from your parents: "I'm not mad, just disapointed".

I am an Idiot.
I bought 2 of these.
I went to TRU and I got 2 Clone Commanders(Green) and 2 BACARSAS...well, I am mad at myself because I didnt grab a Super-articulate and a black clone pilot instead of the Bacaras.
