PROS: What a difference 16 years can make. That’s how long it’s been since we’ve received a new Weequay out of Hasbro and thankfully, this new iteration doesn’t disappoint (much). The figure hits all the right marks in terms of deco, articulation and detail especially that iconic craggy face. The overall stance of the figure is pretty much in keeping for what this figure needs to be… a guard and goon for Jabba. The accessories are sparse but we do get his signature vibro-ax and a blaster. The new Weequay looks amazing with the other skiff and palace guards we’ve received in recent years and I can only imagine how good he might look on the deck of a huge sail barge (wink, wink).
CONS: Despite this being the definitive version we’ve all waited for, it does have a few minor faults. First, the mismatched joint pins in the knees are a complete eyesore but thankfully, they are only visible when its knees are bent or when looking at the figure from behind. Second, it would have put this figure over the top if he would have included a holster to stow his included blaster. Third, since this figure is available only as an online exclusive, collectors won’t get the chance at “guard building” this guy for dioramas as they might have otherwise.
