Toyguide Update: CW18 Clone Commander Fox

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the next addition for the 2012 “Darth Maul” product line. We continue with Clone Commander Fox (CW18) from The Clone Wars sub-line.

PROS: As the Clone Wars line comes grinding to a halt, Hasbro manages to release another nicely painted (save for the helmet error) figure in the release of Fox. The deco overall is as crisp as it is bold with the blood red accents.

CONS: You know the story, the Clone Wars line has taken a back seat for Hasbro and with it, a step backward in articulation. Couple that with the $1 price hike and you have people just not caring about what amounts to as essentially another repainted clone. As of these first shipments, the helmet for Fox has an error that omits a key paint operation shown on the character model and the figure on the cardback. There is no word that it will be corrected.

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