Star Wars Black Series 6" Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha)

Here's a look at the Star Wars Black Series 6" Jyn Erso.

I knew I should not have bought Jyn Erso. A day after I bought her she was announced to be released again in a Target exclusive 3-pack together with Cassian Andor and a Death Trooper... And that pack looks very attractive. Oh well... Jyn Erso is the main protagonist in Rogue One. The figure is of her based on her appearance on Jedha. Out of the package she is wearing a scarf which has been wrapped into a hoodie. The scarf was made of vinyl and is soft and flexible. It fits her head well without looking oversized and there's nice sculpted detail on it. There are folds and wrinkles in it. The scarf is removable. It just takes some fiddling. 

Here she is without her scarf. I think the head sculpt is okay. She could use some different paint apps. She comes across as "green" and fresh faced, not an experienced rebel that she is portrayed as in the trailer. The hair has good detail and I like that there is some dark brown shading in it. Her neck was painted and it is of a different skin tone compared with her face. It's not really a big deal. It's noticeable on close inspection though. Her attire is nice! There's lots of great sculpted detail on it. The brown portion of her jacket has a horizontal lines pattern on it in the front and has zips. I especially like the padded look of it on the back. Her sleeves have wrinkles and have a sculpted yellow strip running down the sides which is textured. Her pants are also textured and you can make out the seams and wrinkles. Her belt and holster is a separate piece and it too is textured. I like the paint detail they did. It makes a big difference. The zips and buckles of her jacket were painted, as were the studs on her belt and buckles on her shoes. Nice!

The "vest" portion of the jacket can be removed. Her arms are jacket sleeves though and do not go along with her grey inner shirt. 

Accessories. In addition to her scarf, she comes with a blaster pistol. There's nice sculpted detail on it and I like that some silver paint was applied on it. The pistol may be stored in the holster at her right thigh.

Articulation. She's got a peg hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, up and down right wrist hinge and swivel, swivel hinge left wrist, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, boot swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. The peg joint for the neck is disappointing. It really should have been a on ball joint. Her head will be slanted when she turns her head while looking up or down. On the plus side, she can look up and down well. The torso joint does not allow much bend forwards and backwards. 

Comparison shots.

Jyn Erso is a good figure. If you haven't bought it yet, don't. I recommend waiting for the 3-pack. Thanks for viewing!
