Ten years after the fight to save Naboo from invasion, the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of a renegade Jedi, thousands of solar systems threaten to secede from the Galactic Republic. A courageous Jedi Knight, his impulsive and headstrong apprentice, and a queen-turned-senator are drawn into the heart of the conflict... and the beginning of war.
A determined and resourceful Jedi, Kit Fisto tenaciously holds to the goal of maintaining peace throughout the galaxy and defending the honor of the Jedi Code. Sent to Geonosis to rescue Padmé, Anakin and Obi-Wan, Kit valiantly battles against overwhelming odds.
Sometimes action figures with action features come out pretty well. This is certainly more of a rarity than anything else because awkwardly added springs, lever and magnets can often be obtrusive to the aesthetics of a normally good sculpt. But if these said action feature are hidden well, they can act as an enhancement more than a nuisance. We suppose that Kit Fisto (Jedi Matser) falls somewhere within the middle of that spectrum. And abnormally great portrait has been placed on a body sculpts with minimal articulation as well as a strategically placed action feature this creating an interesting take on the Nautolan Jedi Master. Kit Fisto sort of stole the show in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. Who could forget him charging into Battle in the Geonosian arena, or his antics when he smiled after Force pushing “C-3PO” to the ground? Immediately recognizable as a standout Jedi, Kit Fisto (Jedi Master) is one of the earliest releases in the Star Wars “Saga” line as well as one of the nicest. Keeping in mind that he isn’t a collector’s dream as far as an action figure is concerned, he does have some great detailing and nice points about his sculpt that should interest collectors somewhat.
Kit Fisto (Jedi Master) is definitely geared towards younger collectors. Let’s not make any mistakes about that. But we have to make it clear that adult collectors would be hard pressed to not find any charm with this action figure. The head sculpt is divine, the paint job is even better, and the action posed stance is not half bad if you consider that it’s pretty much screen accurate. (How else would you look if you were battling the Separatist Droid Army in the Geonosian arena? You can pull back Kit Fisto (Jedi Master)’s left arm to fling his arm out (to create some lightsaber slashing effect), but if you choose to not activate that feature, he can maintain a believable and natural pose without any dangling extremities like so many of the other action feature laden figures are wrought with in the Star Wars “Saga” line. He holds his lightsaber remarkably well in both hands and you are even able to attain poses where both hands are holding onto the hilt. What more could you ask for from a kid-focused action figure? His costume looks as properly colored as it can be and his skin tone could be better. Overall, Kit Fisto (Jedi Master) impresses where other figures in the Star Wars “Saga” disappoint.
Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones introduced us to a plethora of Jedi that fans had never saw until that point. Weequay, Klatooinian and Nikto Jedi, species that were famous for being thugs in Return Of The Jedi, are now fighting for the galaxy’s greater good to protect its freedom from the Separatists. But we have also been introduced to all new species, like the Nautolan Kit Fisto, as well. It goes without saying that Star Wars fans are most interested in the action we see in the Star Wars films. And with Attack of The Clones having a slow and drawn out beginning, it’s nice to see that it ended with a bang, It came in like a lamb and went out like a lion. Hasbro has attempted to preserve the action and excitement of the scenes on Geonosis with good action figures like Kit Fisto (Jedi Master). It’s no way close to being a definitive action figure, but if you’re looking for a decent version of him in action, then this version is definitely for you. Adult collectors are rightfully preoccupied with articulation, so it’s pretty cool when Hasbro does all they can to satiate the needs of both kids and collectors in one action figure. Kit Fisto (Jedi Master) absolutely needs work, but he is a great starting point.
