The Galaxy Of Adventures line exceeds many collectors’ expectations, but many other collectors find no merit in the line whatsoever. If you objectively look at the line as a whole, there is no doubt Hasbro is delivering an exceptional product to the Star Wars collecting community. Admittedly, the Galaxy Of Adventures line is headed for an uphill battle. With so many conflicting lines stealing the attention away from a new 5” line of action figures, collectors have already placed this line on the backburner as they hurry to complete their The Vintage Collection and The Black Series [Phase III] 6” lines. Although produced in an animated style, figures like the Sith Jet Trooper, part of the 2020 lineup, show us that Hasbro can do some amazingly incredible things with the Star Wars brand, even if a new animated scale is not your “thing.” The Sith Jet Trooper is one of the new characters introduced in Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker. Episode IX presents new troopers into the First Order.

We’re quite fond of the Galaxy Of Adventures line, save for one thing about it. We loathe the action features they added into them. Since the Sith Jet Trooper is based on the First Order Jet Trooper released a year previously, the action feature is still present in the arms. The Sith Jet Trooper comes with a “Quick Draw Blaster” action feature, which is annoying as it is stupid. The action feature interferes when you try to pose the character the way YOU want the figure to be posed, and we find that a terrible distraction to the enjoyment of this figure. Thankfully, the Jet Trooper isn’t without merit despite its action feature. Of course, it’s a dreadful annoyance, and it affects the aesthetics of the figure, but the figure is still a lot of fun. We understand the cost for larger-scale figures, but imagine if Hasbro kept the Galaxy of Adventures line at a 3.75” scale, held the same level of articulation, and priced them at $9.99 each. Would the Star Wars collecting world be a happier place? Why compete with two other popular scales that sandwich in the scale of this line? What does Hasbro think they know what we do not?

The Sith Jet Trooper only comes with one accessory. It’s a triple-barreled First Order blaster, but red this time. The figure holds the gun in the right hand flawlessly. It stays in place regardless of how you pose the figure, and it’s a tight fit for when you decide to bang up the Sith Jet Trooper during playtime. More importantly, and we’re quite proud of Hasbro for ensuring this to be possible, they added enough articulation to allow the Jet Trooper to hold the blaster with both hands. The Sith Jet Trooper looks stunning and realistic and lifelike (even though he’s an animated character) posed like this. The Sith Jet Trooper brings a lot to the Galaxy of Adventures line. It doesn’t come with any removable parts, like armor pieces, but it succeeds as an action figure, and for that, we’re grateful. Hasbro cast the Sith Jet Trooper in bright red, almost neon red, plastic. And Hasbro did a fantastic job on the figure’s relatively simple paint job. The helmet lines are extra clean and create a “personality” that isn’t present on the 6” figure. We hope the Galaxy Of Adventures line finds favor with collectors. Those not collecting are missing out.
