Star Wars The Black Series Cad Bane & Todo 360

One of the biggest badasses in the galaxy!

Cad Bane is a great looking figure! The amount of sculpted and painted detail on him is outstanding! Check him out for yourself. There's lots of creases on his inner shirt and pants. They have a wash on them which brings out the detail and give them a weathered look. Really nice! The upper bandolier belt was sculpted. The lower one with the holsters attached is one separate piece. Again there's nice paint detail here. The tips of the ammo were painted. The gauntlets have various panels and buttons on them, and also his flamethrowers. The gauntlets have wires attached which run up his sleeves. The wires are flexible and do not restrict articulation. His hat is a separate piece and is removable. It too has a weathered appearance. His long coat unfortunately does not have a wash and looks clean compared to the rest of his clothing. The sculpted and textured detail on it more than makes up for it. The satchel bag is a separate piece..       

Here's how he looks without his hat. 

I think he has a great head sculpt. You know he's up to no good just looking at him. I really like his smirk with teeth showing. The eyes were very well done. He has breathing tubes attached at the side of his face. The breathing device just hangs on his back. 

The breathing tubes may be removed. 

Just to show you his inner shirt and the butterfly joints. The shoulders are quite wide. A good thing he has his coat to cover it up. 

Accessories. He comes with his hat, two blaster pistols and Todo 360. The pistols look great. I like the metallic silver and the paint detail on them. They may be stored in his holsters.

Todo 360 is one of the best looking droids around. Love that shiny gun metal colour he's in. He may look flimsy but he's actually quite sturdy and stable.  

Todo 360 has great articulation for a droid. He's got a ball joint neck, ball joint shoulders, clock like rotation at the waist, ball hips and ball joint ankles.  To elaborate what I mean about rotation at the waist, his whole body can swing down to the side. I hope that helps.

As for Cad Bane's articulation. He's got a ball joint upper neck, ball joint lower neck, ball hinge shoulders, butterfly joints, bicep swivel, swivel hinge elbows, swivel and up and down hinge wrists, ball joint torso, ball hips, thigh swivel, swivel hinge knees and ankle hinge and pivot. The rockets at his boots have swivel. Aside for head rotation, there's not much range at the upper neck. He looks up and down primarily through the lower neck joint. He can do so decently but it's not enough for my liking. He is able to tilt and cock his head. The butterfly joints swing back more than they swing to the front. There's hardly any forward bend at the torso joint. He can slant his body to the side and arch back decently. Both the elbows and knees can bend about ninety degrees. I don't mind the elbows. The knees really should have been double jointed for better posing.   

Comparison shots.

Great figure! Love the amount of detail on him. Todo is great too! Thanks for viewing!

Man, he is amazing. I only wish he came with his rifle, too. That was such a cool blaster design.
