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.

One thing you can always count on in a Star Wars movie is that you’ll see a lot of aliens doing pretty mundane tasks, adding to the plausibility of the fictional universe, as it were.

Greedo (Star Wars Mashers)

Hasbro started production of Star Wars Mashers action figures shortly after the Marvel ones came out and even though the Deadpool Masher figure helped me to overcome my initial revulsion towards this whole concept, I was not too keen on buying any more until they came up with the subject of today’s review, the Greedo Masher action figure.

Finn (Jakku)

Ever wondered what would a First Order Stormtrooper wear underneath all the armor? Well, apparently they go about with black cargo pants and long-sleeve T-shirts, as attested by this Finn (Jakku) action figure.

AT-AT Microfighter (LEGO)

The AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport) is one of the more memorable vehicles from the Star Wars movies and even though I never got one as a kid, toy companies have been producing different versions suitable for any kind of space requirements one would have.

Droids and aliens are just a couple of the things you can count on Hasbro doing right, when it comes to Star Wars action figures. We have seen them make toys out of incomplete puppets seen briefly in crowd scenes, from way back in the Original Trilogy days.
