Star Wars Rebels Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios & Stormtrooper

Hope you caught Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion this morning. If you missed it, not to worry. It'll be repeated a few times over the next couple of days on the Disney Channel and it'll also be shown on Disney XD tomorrow (5 October). Do check the listings for the two channels.

Right. Here's a look at Zeb and a Stromtrooper 2-pack. 

Zeb is a Lasat, a race nearly wiped out by the Empire. His appearance is actually based on the early McQuarrie concept of Chewbacca. The figure has a good likeness to how he appears in the show. He's got a great head sculpt. His skeletal structure is distinct. His green eyes and scowling expression give him a pretty mean look. His body is large and his limbs look muscular. He wears a bit of armour and they have some nice sculpted detail on them. The paint apps are good overall. The stripes on his body in particular were very well painted on. The lines are clean and sharp.  

There are some white markings on his left shoulder armour. It was very well done.

A closer look at his feet. They look really muscular. You think with spread out toes like that he'll be able to stand well. He tends to fall backwards and you have to make him lean forward in order for him to stand properly.

He comes with his Bo-rifle. It's a unique weapon used by the Lasan Honour Guard. It's so called as it can be used as a rifle and as a bo-staff. What you see in the following pic is of it in rifle mode. When in bo mode, the two ends will extend out. Unfortunately the accessory doesn't have this function. Still, it's a nice piece and has good detail on it. I would have liked if it had more paint detail on it.  

The only paint it's got is on the tip of the rifle.

The Stormtrooper is the same as the single carded version and he also comes with his blaster rifle. It's great that he's the other figure in this pack. Now I don't have to specially hunt for another one. At least two I need for a troop builder type figure. 

Both figures have only 5 points of articulation. Neck rotation, peg shoulders and peg hips.

Comparison shots.

That's it for Zeb. You can check out some of the other Star Wars Rebels figures here.

Thanks for viewing!
