Sgt Jyn Erso (Jedha)

The Black Series 6"

ROGUE ONE, WAVE ONE

It’s that time of the year again where we are reveling in Force Friday, or Rogue Friday as it was also known this year.

2016 saw the release of the newest wave of Star Wars The Black Series 6inch Collector-grade super articulated action figures from Hasbro for the upcoming release of the latest Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in December.

Here’s a look at the awesome new figures from Hasbro & Disney Lucas Film.

Starting with,

Number 22

Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha)

A highly skilled soldier in the Rebel Alliance, Jyn Erso is an impetuous, defiant warrior eager to bring the battle to the Empire. Jyn has little patience for debate within Alliance High Command, enough so that she takes matters into her own hands.

The new wave of Rogue One figures continues with the Black & Red window style packaging and numbering from the previous The Force Awakens waves which is a striking look that helps to make the figure inside stand out against the box background.

The packaging also has a very faint grey print on the left had side of the box which is also the figure’s name that can sometimes easily be missed.

The figure of Jyn is highly detailed with a high amount of articulation from a ball jointed head, single jointed arms to double jointed knees and ankle joints.

As for accessories Jyn comes with only two a hood/scarf which is removable (as shown above) along with a Blaster Pistol that looks great with black handle and silver detailed Barrel. The addition of a baton as seen in the trailer would have good to see like the one that comes in with the Disney Elite version.

Another excellent attention to detail is the working holster with strap to hold Jyn’s Blaster in place.

With Jyn Erso standing at around 5.5 inches tall she fits in nicely with the rest of the wave looking amazing standing next to K2SO.

Next up in this line is Number 23
