It only took 33 years, but collectors now have the luxury of adding Camie Marstrap and Laze “Fixer” Loneozner into their collections as Celebration V's exclusive Hasbro Comic Packs release. First appearing in the infamous deleted scene of Luke’s arrival in Anchorhead, these two lovebirds provided a new dynamic to the character of Luke Skywalker that isn’t clearly revealed in the scenes that did make it into the final version of the film. It helps explain Luke’s choice of friends, his deeper longing for a more meaningful perspective on life and just the overall interaction that he may have been the “runt” of the group. Camie, an extremely beautiful young girl had a spice to her personality that could rival the young Princess Leia Organa. In a scene that most fans want incorporated into an ultimate version of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Camie is rather smug and full of attitude in her dealings with Luke Skywalker. It is a trait that makes her ever so sexy and she looks like a classic version of the beautiful Rhona Mitra in some aspects. The rather lax Fixer is kind of a mismatch for Camie looks wise, but obviously there is some equal attraction there. And while we definitely wanted action figures of these characters in our collections, Hasbro didn’t manage to nail the likenesses as well as we had hoped. They are great in many ways, but lack in others.

Camie has 12 points of articulation and is relatively “pretty” for a female action figures. We have seen Hasbro execute “beauty” much better in the recent past, but Camie passes “enough” for us. She is quite mobile and the joints all look good and are hidden well. She comes with her pet dog which is exclusive to the comic books and her outfit is faithfully replicated from both the deleted scene in A New Hope AND the comics. The dog has been designed to fir in her hands perfectly but to be honest, the pet loving trait we see here doesn’t necessarily match her rigid personality we briefly saw in the deleted scenes. This of course doesn’t mean that she shouldn’t be an animal over, but it seems a little askew (in our opinions). Fixer has 14 points of articulation and we think he actually may be the weaker figure in this set. Fixer is way off in our opinions (in the portrait), but thankfully the rest of the figure looks pretty good. The head is all-new but looks more like a repaint of Garven Dreis from the Scramble On Yavin Battle Packs set than Fixer from the deleted scene. The action figure definitely looks too old and his face is too round and if there is a timing issue (the Star Wars: Empire: Darklighter story takes place years after A New Hope) then we stand corrected, but it just doesn’t look like him. So he is bittersweet because he is a well crafted action figure with a poor likeness.

The most important thing about this Comic Packs set is that Hasbro delivered more “deleted scene” characters for fans (even if they appear in the Expanded Universe as comic book characters) and this is something that a lot of us want (in addition to concept art figures). This Comic Packs sets does just this very thing. And to get super-articulated (or almost) figures on top of it is just gravy. If you aren’t familiar with the deleted scenes from A New Hope, then you bets get yourself to You Tube to check them out and learn where this set was inspired. Rumors abound that these long lost scenes may be included in a collector’s edition Blu-Ray disc in 2011, but only time will tell. So for now the only way to enjoy these characters is to pick up this Comic Packs set. Interestingly, Hasbro has refreshed the packaging to reflect the stormy blue “Shadow Of The Dark Side” line look. We think this was a rather aggressive move on Hasbro’s part to create a new template for the few exclusive releases coming to us now, but it is what it is. The deluxe packaging is indeed splendid and it makes the price tag a little more tolerable, but we’re not sure how necessary it was, especially since you get the comic book included inside. We’re on the fence with this release. You will have to be the judge to see if it warrants a place in your collection. The quality and value is here, but we just think some of the sculpting has sorely missed the mark.
