Nerdversity Reviews: Star Wars Rebels Agent Kallus Action Figure

Star Wars Rebels figures have been leaking into the UK and in this review, we'll take a look at the Agent Kallus action figure from Hasbro. The front of the card has a flaming Stormtrooper helmet with the figure in the bubble holding a rifle. Underneath is his CGI model and name,

The back of the card is plain orange and features a larger CG model of Kallus next to a TIE fighter. There's some copyright warnings and that's about it. Not much on there. 

Out of the packet, we have Kallus in a non-removeable helmet, black Imperial Uniform with grey stormtrooper style chestplate over the top. He has the same 5 points of articulation that we've come to expect on all figures these days. There are some great details in the sculpt though and he does have some nice folds in the uniform sleeves and pants, while still maintaining that Imperial style razor creases in them. The face sculpt has a neutral expression, but determined eyes. 

His weapon is a black bo staff that has been folded into it's rifle form, rather than an Imperial Blaster that is common. In the cartoon series, he stole it off a guard and was shown to be rather capable of using it in all it's forms.

All in all, not a bad figure. It could have been improved with a few minor tweaks, such as having his helmet removable and the blaster attachable to his back, much like the above promo image. I was able to get the figure for £2 on clearance from Aldi.
