CW28 Clone Pilot Goji

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Clone Pilot Goji from the Clone Wars Collection.

PROS: A solid figure and serves its purpose in piloting the various starfighters currently available. Great helmet deco.

CONS: Utilizes the “Stone” body, which turns off many collectors due to the downgrade of a few key points of articulation (no ball-jointed wrist, ankles and torso).
