I love freakish aliens, so the Senators wave of figures in the ROTS line was nice. A bit of a bitch to find, but nicely done all around. That makes this review's focus a fun one to own and pick apart for what's good and what failed. This week we're looking at Ask Aak (Republic Senator)
. Not only do I love the figure, but I even liked the character in the prequals and felt he should've had a figure back in 2002 even.
Hasbro did a pretty bang-up job though on this one, and took the usually duller "Senator" figure and turned it into something special. There's a number of ball/socket joints, the sculpt rivals the best work Hasbro's done such as Ephant Mon, and the figure's a weighty mofo to boot. The fact Hasbro did a nice little extra by including a blaster accessory is greatly appreciated.
The lack of accessories with these types of figures is where it can usually be critiqued but all 3 figures in the wave Aak came out in had a gun and a base. That's pretty nice work.
So check out the review at the link provided and enjoy... And if you're lucky enough to find the figure, pick up Ask Aak without hesitating because he's a winner to me. A pegwarmer if he shipped in huge numbers, but he's still a winner for a figure.
