Nerdversity Reviews: Star Wars Hero Mashers Garazeb Orrelios


Star Wars Rebels is one of the latest shows to be released after Disney took over the license. It has proven itself to be one of the more popular shows on Disney XD and has had a massive surge in merchandising.


Garazeb is one of the more modern characters to get a release in the Hero Mashers line. He comes in the same box packaging at the others. It features the STAR WARS logo in the upper right. The main part of the box shows the figure and the accessories. The lower left features the HERO MASHERS logo and Mashed Up Boba Fett.


The back of the box shows the figure with his accessory. The figure itself is all mashed up and uses parts from other figures in the Hero Mashers line. 


The Garazeb figure stands around 6 inches tall and is modelled after his appearance in the Rebels cartoon series. He's articulated in the neck, shoulder, bicep, wrist, hips and knees. Like all Mashers, he can be disassembled and re-assembled in any way the user sees fit, making all kinds of weird and wacky combinations. 


His accessories are a grasping claw and a staff. He can hold the staff in his open hand or placed on his back, The claw fits in the closed fist, or again on his back. They will also work in any of the accessory ports on the Hero Mashers figures.


I was able to pick up this figure for cheap from Tesco, as they were clearancing a lot of their Star Wars merchandise. Not a bad figure overall, I think he's a little lacking, but I'm sure kids out there will enjoy it.
