Star Wars Rebels Hera Syndulla & Stormtrooper Commander Review

Star Wars Rebels Hera Syndulla and Stormtrooper Commander 01

 

Hasbro’s Star Wars Rebels line continues with wave 3 consisting of Hera Syndulla & Stormtrooper, TIE Pilot & Stormtrooper, and Ezra Bridger (Cadet) and Kanan Jarrus. Once again we’re seeing stores getting these 2-packs in, and just not restocking them as they used too. While it’s great to see that these are flying off shelves regardless of them having 5 points of articulation, we wish that stores would restock as fast as these sell out. It’s getting past the frustration point to find these figures and should be easier to found to begin with considering the fact that kids watch this show. If kids can’t buy figures based on characters they watch on tv, you have a line that’s doomed since kids and parents make up most of the customer base.

Some Star Wars fans are looking at Hera as a modern version of Cesi “Doc” Eirriss, the X-Wing pilot that found along wide the Rebels. While they are different characters, it would have actually made sense for them to be the same character considering they look so much alike.

Availability: March 2015

Hera is based on her appearance in the animated series and features a great likeness to the show. It’s a fun fact that she completes the Rebels team in the show, and all the figures look great next to each other. The bad news about the figure is that there is no holster for the included blaster, and that’s the first thing that we looked for. Her paint deco is also accurate to the animated series. She is painted in her orange, brown and tan pilot uniform, and the paint deco on her lekku matches the onscreen version.

The Stormtrooper Commander uses the Saga Legends Stormtrooper mold, and includes a newly tooled pauldron on his right shoulder. The paint deco is white, and not pearl white like the Stormtrooper mold.

Articulation:

5 points of articulation.

Accessories:

Hera – 1 blaster

Stormtrooper Commander – 1 blaster

Overall:

Hera has a great deco and a beautiful sculpt that really stands out and we are very happy with how she came out. If you buy this set and the Sabine 2-pack, you will have a complete collection now.

Given that Hasbro released Stormtrooper Commander figures with more articulation in the past, this one with 5 points of articulation is best used as standing straight up for enemy target practice, and for the most part, doesn’t do anything for us.

Recommended (for Hera only).
