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 cook in a Coruscant diner, Dexter Jettster picks up plenty of information as he's serving his patrons. An old friend of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he's always willing to share his information for a price.
Where the Prequel Trilogy films were often criticized for “shrinking” the Star Wars universe, there are probably just as many characters to show its breadth and deepness contrarily. Maybe it’s absurd that Darth Vader was C-3PO’s father, but can you blame George Lucas and company for showing that Obi-Wan Kenobi had ties to the most revered Jedi as well as Finer owners? That’s exactly where Dexter Jettster (Coruscant Informant) comes into play. Dexter Jettster (Coruscant Informant) was a Besalisk cook from Coruscant and owner of Dex’s Diner, a highly frequented food shop by Coruscant’s middle class dwellers. Because he came across many different people in his trade, he quickly attained a wealth of information and took on a second unintended role of “informant” right there in his diner. It was Obi-Wan Kenobi who sought him out to shed light on a weapon that killed Zam Wesell, the bounty hunter whose goal was to assassinate Senator Amidala. Thankfully Obi-Wan Kenobi was helped by his husky friend and he was able to continue his trek to find out more information surrounding the attempts being made on Amidala’s life.
Dexter Jettster (Coruscant Informant) is a well sculpted and frankly well made action figure. He is quite limited in articulation, but the one saving grace for a sculpt this large is that the articulation “cut points” aren’t present and have no negative impact on the aesthetics of the action figure. He looks whole and untouched, as the body of figure should be, and he has plenty of details which accent his truly unique alien appearance. Clearly a collector-focused action figure, Hasbro had the older folks in mind when they designed him. But since collectors of all ages buy action figures, the kids are also going to be interested in this very large and bulky/brawny action figure. Dexter Jettster (Coruscant Informant) is weighty and thick. He has a perfect center of gravity thanks to two very large feet and he has a final paint job that should impress pretty much all collectors who buy him. He doesn’t move any which way, but Dexter Jettster (Coruscant Informant) has enough positives to make him a completely worthwhile purchase for your collection. Hasbro will likely never revisit him again, so this may be your only chance to buy him.
