Star Wars is on the cusp of a major renaissance. The long-rumored, long-denied sequel trilogy is finally hitting the theatres later this year, the new Star Wars Rebels cartoon is a success, and the long awaited return of Star Wars comics from Marvel are hitting the shelves. All of this means that the expanded universe is rapidly growing, and my fingers are crossed for some great new female characters. Sabine Wren is the token female in the first season of Star Wars Rebels. The series takes place five years before A New Hope and follows the adventures of a group a young rebels in an unassuming freighter ship. Sabine is the weapons experts of the group. She is a Mandalorian who previously served under Emperor Palpatine but now uses her skills for good (along with her artistic graffiti skills). These animated style Star Wars figures never appealed to me before this purchase. The Clone Wars toys had a heavy presence on the toy stores for years, but it look this purple Boba Fett to get me hooked.
Her guns fit in her holsters as well.
It's interesting that these figures, with their 5 points of articulation, are the
closest thing we have to the vintage figures in the original scale.
Here are some images of Sabine Wren from the show.
Those images make me wish her helmet was removable
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here is Sabine Wren with her Stormtrooper pack-mate.
Here she is with Rav Bralor and Isabet Reau.
