You get a “shampoo bottle” set. And you get a “shampoo bottle” set. And you get a “shampoo bottle” set…. Ever since the Rebels toy line, Star Wars collectors have been conditioned to expect a six-pack of “shampoo bottles” from retail giant TARGET every Fall. As expected, the same type of exclusive was released for the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line in support of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi film releasing December 15, 2017. There are many debates surrounding Hasbro’s current 12-Inch Figures line. Gone are the days where 12-Inch Figures had real soft-goods clothing and an array of accessories. Sure, the “old school” figures, in many instances, borrowed Hasbro’s GI Joe body over and over and over again, but a facet of collectors appreciate the uniqueness that had been attained with each successive release. Now we just get blown-up versions of the characters in the 5POA line, with a couple of extra points of articulation. The awfully named BB-8/Captain Poe Dameron/Rey (Jedi Training)/First Order Stormtrooper Executioner/Kylo Ren/First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader six-pack contain only one-third new figures, so if you bought the rest of the figures separately on their own, then you’re going to have a lot of repetition in this set. You’d think that with how cheap it is to make these 12-Inch Figures that Hasbro wouldn’t try to attain a 50% or greater ratio of newness for a retailer exclusive. This repetition is overbearing.

The BB-8/Captain Poe Dameron/Rey (Jedi Training)/First Order Stormtrooper Executioner/Kylo Ren/First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader is comprised of six diverse characters from The Last Jedi. Sure, most of the faces here are already familiar, but now these characters are wearing duds from Episode VIII instead of Episode VIII. BB-8 is a slight repaint of the figure from the three-pack released during The Force Awakens line. It doesn’t come with any accessories this time and sadly shows the holes that the snap-on parts would have covered. Captain Poe Dameron, Rey (Jedi Training) and Kylo Ren are all from the mainstream 12-Inch Figures line. There are no differences between the figures in the six-pack and those released into the mainstream line. Rey (Jedi Training) only comes with her lightsaber and we find it a bit odd since she utilizes so many accessories in the film. If you want to get all of these figures, then you’re better off buying this multipack instead of buying them individually. You’ll save some money, and you can get them all in one fell swoop. We understand the need to keep the main characters in a retailer exclusive like this, but the repetition is a bit much. It may have served TARGET and Hasbro better to add one or two obscure characters into this set, or add the main character Resistance Tech Rose and make her truly exclusive to this set without a mainstream release offering.

The two “new” figures in this six-pack are the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner and the First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader. Both have been made from 2017’s SW [TLJ] First Order Stormtrooper figure. As you know, the helmet design has been revised rather significantly, and this new style has been applied to the First Order Stormtrooper figures in the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line. First Order Stormtrooper Executioner has been painted beautifully. Some collectors are overly critical of the deco on this figure, likening him to a court jester. But we have found the color flashes to be interesting and think it’s one of the coolest-looking First Order Stormtroopers the line has seen. Hasbro also designed a stunning laser ax for the figure, and they’ve done an amazing job on its tooling and screen authenticity. There isn’t an electro effect on this accessory, but that’s fine as far as we’re concerned. It helps keep this figure unique to the other First Order Stormtrooper Executioners in the line, and we get to see the details of the blades very carefully now. The First Order Stormtrooper Squad is the other new figure in this set, but it’s a dud. Hasbro just added an orange pauldron to the figure and called it a day. It's not an exciting figure, and we’re not sure why they decided to include him here. The set retails for $49.99. It’s a fair price, but just like the others, you should be able to find it for much less towards the end of the shopping season.
