Source: The Clone Wars (Season 2 Episode 12: The Mandalore Plot)
Availability: November 2010
Dissatisfied by Mandalore's official policy of pacifism, many Mandalorian warriors have joined a secret organization known as the Death Watch. Wearing armor reminiscent of ancient Mandalorian warriors, members of the Death Watch seek to bring back Mandalore's warrior traditions. They secretly meet with Pre Vizsla, their leader, to plot the overthrow of Mandalore's rightful government.
It’s quite peculiar how we got a box of four Mandalorian Warriors action figures in the Battle Packs set months before the basic carded figure came out isn’t it? But then again, stuff like this happens all the time we suppose. While the figures in the multipacks are essentially the same as the basic figure, there is one noticeable different right from the get go. The blasters that fit into the holster have a finished outer coating in some sort of metallic paint (for the basic figure) while the ones in the Battle Packs are unfinished gray. Other than that we honestly don’t see anything else that differs drastically enough. So if you read our review on the awesome Mandolorian Warriors Battle Packs set then you already know about this figure. And honestly, we are quite surprised that Hasbro decided to incorporate this character into the basic figure line. When you can buy four for about $6.25 each, are you really going to shell out and extra $.75 to get it on a basic card. Never mind, that was a stupid question.
The paint job on the basic figure has a little bit crisper lines and overall the paint job is a little bit better. There are neater applications of paint that stand out better in our opinion. (But we don’t see any intentional differences so let’s be clear on that.) The standard blue jumpsuit can be seen here as well as gray chest armor, cod piece and shin armor. And then he has silver gauntlets. His jetpack launches a projectile and his hands have been cleverly designed to hold the various blaster pistols that came with him. The helmet is something that we should all take not of because it really is a superbly sculpted work of art. We think that the attention to detail has been captured with artistic grace and we don’t believe we have seen a realistic version of the Mandalorian helmet looks comparably this good in the toy line yet. We hope that Hasbro takes a cue from this figure and somehow works in the angles and scale this perfectly into the next Jango Fett or Boba Fett action figure!
