Star Wars Rebels HERA SYNDULLA!

Star Wars Rebels - Mission Series 19 - 2-Pack w/ Stormtrooper - Hasbro 2015

One of my favorite things about Star Wars is all the cool alien races. My favorite alien species by a longshot are the Twi'lek with their signature head-tails. I'm about to start re-watching the original trilogy again for the first time in a decade, but I'm pretty sure the only Twi-lek characters introduced were Bib Fortuna and Oola, Jabba the Hut's majordomo and slave/dancer. From those auspicious beginnings, the Twi-lek race has been widely utilized in the Star Wars expanded universe. Some impressive new(er) female characters include Aayla Secura, Darth Talon, and now Hera Syndulla. Hera is a major character in the new Star Wars Rebels CGI-animated television show. She is the fearless pilot of The Ghost and daughter of the character Cham Syndulla (from Star Wars: The Clone Wars). This figure is very basic, but charming in its simplicity. To me, it harkens back to the early days of Kenner, except there are girls who surprisingly aren't princesses, slaves, or prostitutes. Amazing what 30 years can do.

Hera comes with a single handgun as an accessory.

Five stunning points of articulation!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her pack-mate, a Stormtrooper Commander.

And with the only other girl (so far) in the Rebels line, Sabine Wren.

And with another Twi-lek pilot in my collection, Cesi Eirriss.



  1. She does have a very classic Kenner vibe. I dig it!

    1. Me too! These actually remind me a lot of the Droids series which I had a ton of.
