the second of the new 12" figures i received today is the imperial officer.
my favorite thing with this figure is the uniform. mainly the fact that it's the correct shade of gray, compaired to tarkin's uniform, and the sleeves are long enough to cover the wrists. i will be getting at least two more of these figures, one to replace tarkin's ill fitting uniform, and one to use in my general veers hoth custom.
i don't know if this 3 figure wave is supposed to represent characters from "Empire", but the head on the imperial officer looks a lot like one of the officers on the first death star, not the actor on the box.
for the 3rd time, hasbro has used one of their newer GI Joe bodies on this figure, as seen earlier with jango fett and count dooku. this figure has the slim arms, like the one with jango.
thanks hasbro for saving me $7 bucks. (now i don't have to swap out this figure's body)
the boots are an all new sculpt. a vast improvement over the previous jack-boots used with most of the male figures. however, there is a big problem with these new boots. for some reason they are very sticky. it's almost like they were painted and the paint never properly dried. i've washed them and they are still sticky. i may have to replace these boots with some german boots made by 21st century toys.
overall, this figure is a huge improvement over the death star trooper. the head is in a proper scale, the uniform fits well, and hasbro used their superior GI Joe body.
i give this figure a B+. an admiral motti or general veers sculpt would of made it an "A"
