Overall, Hasbro does a pretty good job at representing characters from the latest Star Wars Entertainment across many scales. Often, there is duplication, but mostly they make their character selections diverse and unique. When it comes to the Qi'ra (Corellia) character, however, we already see duplication. This is a bit confusing because we have already seen her in multiple various outfits in official promotional materials and trailers. So we’re not sure why Hasbro has decided to revisit this version of her in the 12-Inch Figures line. Admittedly, the large action figure looks great. It’s inevitably a better-looking figure than the 3.75” scale, but this is a common occurrence when you’re working with a larger canvas such as a 12-Inch Figure. Qi'ra (Corellia) has a genuine likeness to actress Emilia Clarke. You can see the resemblance in the action figure’s eyes mostly. As you know, Qi'ra (Corellia) is a version of her that is reminiscent of the late 80s and early 90s. The outfit has a surprisingly dated look to it, but this dated look looks Earthly, not from a galaxy, far, far away. She is the only character that looks “dated” in this way from the film so far. Let’s look at this figure a little more closely.
Qi'ra (Corellia) is comparable in height to the other figures in the line which enlightens us that the figure might be out of scale for this format. There are a great number of factors when it comes to height like heel thickness and posture, but Alden Ehrenreich and Emilia Clarke are over a half a foot apart in height from each other. The two 12-Inch Figures barely show this difference at all. Regardless of any perceived height issues, the figure looks pretty nice. She is wearing a bright orangey-red top with black accents. The faux fur jacket and a denim skirt with acid-washing on the lower portion complement her top. She also has some accessories on her wrists. We’re not sure if there are just jewelry or some communicator. The latter is probably a likely choice for one of them. The black boots complete her outfit. Again, Qi'ra (Corellia) looks more like someone you went to high school with when CC Music Factory was on the radio. It’s impossible not to see this correlation in her outfit. We’re not sure why Disney Star Wars took this route to an otherwise timeless setting. Still, we’re hoping that her character makes the outfit a non-issue in the film.
Qi'ra (Corellia) is essentially the Star Wars [Solo] Qi'ra (Corellia) Force Link 2.0 figure blow up. They are 1:1 exact replicas of each other. From the last hair on her head to the slightly angled left arm away from her body, you can see how beneficial it is for Hasbro to use digital files to create the same characters in differing scales. Qi'ra (Corellia) comes with a ball-socket head. This is followed by swivel shoulders, forearms, and hips. Yes, you cannot get a great range of movement with this figure because of its articulation, but admittedly she looks great “just sitting on a shelf” not doing much at all. Hasbro tooled a blaster pistol for her. She doesn’t come with a holster to house it when not in use, but Hasbro tooled her hands to “cup” the gun beautifully when she holds it. The paint operations look great. Hasbro’s factory applied the deco beautifully in all honesty. There are any misaligned eyes or lips, and the lines are clean and straight with no bleeding at all. We understand if this scale isn’t for you. The collector-focused 12-Inch Figures are long gone and will likely never return, but if you appreciate larger-scaled action figures, we think this one might be for you!
