Best Toys from Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker
We unleashed our best Star Wars geeks to comb through all the toys coming out from the new movie, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. For the best action figure, we just loved this Black Series Sith Trooper Toy 6″ Scale The Rise of Skywalker Collectible Action Figure.
In case you are new to the Star Wars action figure world, Black Series action figures are six inches high—previous figures were 3.75″ tall. Thanks to the larger size, Black Series figures have more detail and articulation then previous figures.
The new movie, Rise of Skywalker, will introduce these Sith Troopers, dressed in red, to the Star Wars universe. While we don’t know exactly what they’ll be doing in the movie, this fully articulated figure allows for imaginative play with the included blaster rifle.
What We Liked
• Amazing detailing. Look at the chest and helmet of this figure—that fine detailing is impressive.
• Stands with a separate stand. Yes, this bad boy doesn’t need a stand to stand; that is great improvement over earlier Black Series figures.
• Love the bright red color. Stands out in any collection.
What Needs Work
• Not the best for collectors? We see a few complaints about shipping damage, which usually center around box getting crunched. This disappoints collectors, who prefer a pristine box for resale value down the line.
• No head motion. While the articulation (especially in the shoulders) is impressive, the head just swivels. It doesn’t move up or down. On the upside, the butterfly joints in this figure allow it to realistically hold its blaster.
