Toyguide Update: SL10 Captain Rex

SL10_rex_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with our next entry in the 3-3/4″ Saga Legends line. Today we take a look at Captain Rex (SL10).

PROS: It’s nice to see characters from the Clone Wars not being completely abandoned. Captain Rex is almost entirely new and features a simplistic and yet detailed sculpt. The paint details are pretty good and surprisingly, Hasbro included many of the kill marks on the head, arms and legs – details that easily could have been omitted from these budget figures. The functional holsters are a nice touch as are the inclusion of the removable pauldron and dual blaster pistols since accessory count for the Saga Legends line has been limited to one or two pieces. Aimed at the younger collector, this figure just works as it does everything required of it – it fits in most vehicles, stands with little effort, holds his weapons firmly and looks great doing so.

CONS: Again, this figure isn’t for everyone due to its limited five points of articulation.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.

    Another con about this figure, is that we’ve gotten this instead of the S/A realistic Rex so far.

      Isn’t realistic Rex coming in wave 5 or 6 of TBS?

      • disqus_yc9Askziob

        I’ve not heard anything about him coming, if so well i take it back then.

    Hasbro screwed its customers agine. I have been waiting for a realistic Rex for years, and when the finale get around to making one it lpoks like crap. I really hate the lack of articulation, but thats just the start. This fig has no reedeming qualities. Hasbro, please make something worth buying.
