•Grand Admiral Ackbar•
Doing a double review this week. Earlier we did a review of 1 of the 2 figures in the Toys ‘R’ Us Double Pack Exclusive, the First Order Officer. Today we will discuss the more recognizable, Grand Admiral Ackbar.
*Sculpt - I took so many pictures of Ackbar. Specifically because this sculpt is just amazing. From the tendrils on the face, to the scales and wrinkles, this is a figure that was really given the special treatment. His outfit is a little plain, but you still can look at this figure and go “wow!”. I know I did.
*Articulation - 19 points of articulation. (1) Head, (1) movable jaw, (2) shoulders, (2) elbows, (2) wrists, (1) waist, (2) hips, (2) thighs, (4) knees, and (2) ankles.
*Accesories - Ackbar comes with 1 Blaster. It’d have been really cool if it had included a datapad and baton like in the 3 3/4 inch Black Series figure...we never see Ackbar use a weapon and he doesn’t even have a holster. -_-
*Paint App - The paint app, semantics aside, is great. Ackbar looks great. I’m a bit disappointed that we don’t get a 6” inch Return of the Jedi Ackbar attire paint app...but again semantic asides. They did this character justice.
*Final Take-Away - I think there were some better choices to be made accessory wise(and no holster?) and maybe it’s just me; but I feel like we would have been better served with a RoTJ 6” Ackbar, but I can’t say enough good things about Ackbar’s head sculpt and arms/hands. Who knows, I’ve seen a classic WIP of RoTJ Ackbar floating around there. Maybe someday I’ll have one 🤷🏻♂️How did you all feel about this set? Comment below!
