Hi guys back again today for a review of one of my most recent haul and long awaited release to my starswars collection. It's Captain Rex from Sideshow Collectibles. This is a must get to my 501st legion collection lol and it's finally here.
If you follow the clone wars digital animation series, Rex will be no stranger to you. He is the right hand of general Anakin Skywalker and execute orders directly from Skywalker.
A little Back story( as described on the box): Grown on Kamino from the DNA of bounty hunter Jango Fett, Clone Trooper Captain [CC-7567], nicknamed REX, was activated during the Clone Wars, the galxy spanning struggle between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Rex was a free thinking, cunning and tough warrior, yet despite his unusual individualism as a clone, Rex followed orders without question.
Serving as General Anakin Skywalker's second, Rex commands Torrent Company of the acclaimed 501st Legion of the Grand Army Of The Republic. Rex and his men were assigned to patrol the most lawless and dangerous sectors of the galaxy within the feared Outer Rim.
The human head sculpt is a "real" human version of the digital/animated counterpart. In my opinion this is a wise move on the part of Sideshow as this figure will blend in easily with all the Starwars universe figures they released so far.
The Clone helmet sculpt is my favourite part of this figure. The markings are nice and the paint apps is also good.
Weapons: Rex comes with the standard clone trooper Blastech DC-15 Blaster Rifle and Blastech DC-15A Blaster . He also has a twin pair of Blastech DC-17 Pistols which is unique to Rex.
|Name's Rex, you can call me 'Captain' or 'Sir'|
