Spartan CIO

The CIO (Counter Intelligence Operator) Mjölnir GEN2 armor was one of the variants we got to see in the multiplayer levels from Halo 4. According to the lore, the Spartan CIO armor was developed specifically to offer an increased performance in espionage and counter-intelligence missions, rather than combat.

Kylo Ren (Jedi Force)

The Playskool aesthetics applied on this particular version of Kylo reminds me a lot of the cartoons drawn by Brian Kessinger, where we get to see different characters from Star Wars existing in the Calvin & Hobbes universe.

First Order Flametrooper (Jedi Force)

I really like the stylized format Hasbro uses for their Playskool action figures. In the case of the Jedi Force segment, they recently started offering single characters with action features built in them, like this First Order Flametrooper.

Rey (Resistance Outfit)

Rey is seen wearing this outfit right at the end of Star Wars The Force Awakens, for about five minutes, and even though it does look more put together than the scavenger outfit se wears for most of the movie, it is fairly evident the girl likes beige.

Kylo Ren (Unmasked)

Even though Hasbro did provide at least a couple different versions of Kylo Ren in the early 3.75-inch action figure assortment, it was until the last wave allotted for Star Wars: The Force Awakens that Unmasked Kylo Ren was made available.

Edward Kenway (Mayan Outfit)

One of my latest acquisitions comes from AC IV: Black Flag, and it is this version of Edward Kenway in his Mayan inspired outfit. Of course, this is an artistic interpretation, as Mayans really did not dress like this nor had a working knowledge of metal armor manufacturing.

Alien (Funko ReAction)

This Alien is based off the first movie directed by Ridley Scott and even though the action figure is not quite as detailed as the screen counterpart, it does a pretty good job of capturing the characteristic traits from the H.R. Giger designs.

First Order Flametrooper

Even though we got to see a myriad of specialized troopers back in the Original Trilogy days, one of the more interesting First Order trooper designs we got to see in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie is that of the Flametrooper.

First Order Snowtrooper

One aspect I really enjoyed from Episode VII was the variety of environments visited by the heroes, from the arid wastes of Jakku to the alpine ranges of Starkiller Base. And of course, they encountered a suitable array of enemies on each one.

Nien Nunb (Episode VII)

Following my affinity for Star Wars aliens and droids, I was particularly happy to see Nien Nunb return to the screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, he was still used in a minor role but it was good to see him still on duty and even better to know Hasbro would make a new action figure of him.

Hassk Thug

In many ways, the seventh movie in the Star Wars saga felt somewhat like a rethread of themes we knew from the previous two trilogies. Among other things, we got to see desert planets, immense weapons of mass destruction and last but not least, a place where the most disparate creatures hung out together while relaxing and having a drink.
