Availability: November 2010
Mandalorian warrior Rohlan Dyre and Arkanian protector Jarael are caught up in the Mandalorian Wars that ravage across the galaxy in the days of the Old Republic. The lives of these two very different people – the fierce Jarael and "Rohlan the Questioner" – intersect when they meet the Force-sensitive Zayne Carrick..
Fans of Knights Of The Old Republic have truly gotten the shaft when it comes to action figures. It’s bizarre how it seems to be the most requested source which fans clamor for action figures, yet Hasbro only gets them out few and far between. KOTOR fans should consider themselves especially lucky with the Comic Packs set of Jarael/Rohlan Dyre because you almost didn’t have it. Entertainment Earth rose to the challenge and picked up four Comic Packs sets which are all awesome. It is truly a shame that none of them made it to the big box stores. We’re not sure if Hasbro realizes that some of the choices they make are killing some of the best sub-lines the Star Wars brand has ever seen. Evolutions sets are now history, Mighty Muggs are now history and now Comic Packs are history. It was the perfect medium for Expanded Universe collectors but poor distribution and not giving new product updated assortment numbers coupled with straight repacks of boring sets have brought the Comic Packs to a complete halt. But since Hasbro works years in advance, many of them were either shown or planned for eventual release. The Jarael/Rohlan Dyre set made it out thankfully and there is a lot to be happy with here. And while we’re thrilled for the opportunity to purchase it, we just didn’t think the line deserved to end this way. Hasbro is going to have to come to terms that repacks need to go away. It’s detrimental to the health of any line.
Jarael is an Arkanian protector who meets Rohlan Dyre because of mutual meeting with Zayne Carrick. And that’s the quickest synopsis of their intersection. As an action figure, Jarael is done very well. She is thin and athletic and has beautifully feminine traits. She looks like some sort of snow fairy simply because of her features (like pointy ears) and light-colored gear. She has “girly” tattoos on her arms and face and it adds quite a bit of personality to the action figure. She has silky soft-goods which have been nicely tucked behind her in the package and will remain in this position until you decide to pose her. her weapon is a shockstaff which looks exactly like a hybrid of a lightsaber and a wooden staff and it’s pretty cool. And this weapon is interesting in the fact that she is rumored to have Jedi DNA in her blood. She finally has a removable satchel that is petite and hangs close to her body. it has been very well designed to interact well with her curvy body. Her hair falls to the front and back of her midsection. It looks pretty and suits her personality quite well. She has a healthy amount of articulation, although none is included in her ankles. We are thrilled to have all of this movement with her but the bottoms of her boots are slightly curled and we had a slightly difficult time trying to get her to stand without falling over. But if you bend her knees in the right fashion, this is quickly remedied. With a little bit of patience we made it work. We discovered that it’s a little bit easier to pose her in an action stance.
