Toyguide Update: Kanan Jarrus (SL04)

SWR_kanan_TGpreview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with the next entry in the Star Wars Rebels 3-3/4″ line. Next, we take a look at Kanan Jarrus (SL04) from the Saga Legends line.

PROS: Yep, another Kanan but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Hasbro (and Lucasfilm/Disney) wants to make sure kids are bombarded with the new characters in the Star Wars universe so it only makes sense to get “the leader” out there en mass. Again, this is a repack but it does have a tighter deco/and assembly than my Jedi Reveal pack figure had (your experience may vary of course).

CONS: While it’s understandable that Kanan is getting an individual carded release, we aren’t getting separate figures of Zeb, Hera or Sabine (main characters of the series and crew of the Ghost) on basic cards. Again, distribution of the figures is still lagging behind the debut of the show but they are starting to hit in the US finally (Target, Walmart, Toys”R”US) so keep checking those stores.

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