Fixer and Camie meet their friends Luke Skywalker and Biggs Darklighter at Tosche Station to work on their T-16 skyhoppers. As they make plans to go swooping through Beggar's Canyon to bulls-eye womp rats, they share their dream of leaving behind the remote desert planet of Tatooine to seek out fame and glory as part of the Rebel Alliance.
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 a healthy dose 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 2009's TLC 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.
