As I type this, there are thousands of geeks sitting in the theatre getting their first glimpse at The Force Awakens. I'm not going to get a chance to see it until next week at the earliest, but I'm still super excited. I watched a bunch of cast interviews this afternoon on YouTube and they made me really curious about the character Rey. Based on some of J.J. Abrams' and Carrie Fisher's comments, it sounds as if Rey is the focal point of the film. Of course, most people know the truth of that by this point, but I'm still in the joyous speculation phase. This Elite Series figure eluded me for many months after I missed her on Force Friday. I felt like a crazy person calling my Disney Store every Monday after they got their shipments in. That never panned out, but one day I randomly stopped in a different location and she was the lone figure sitting on the shelf. Things always seem to work out one way or another. Let's check out the Elite Series Rey in detail below!
Above I listed her height at 6" - which is true - but this is technically a 7" line. For comparison, the Black Series Rey measures 5.5"
Rey comes with BB-8, a Staff, a Backpack, and a Gun.
Her backpack is extremely hard to get on. I had to remove her head and bend her arms all the way back, and it still seemed like I was stretching the plastic straps to their tearing point. (Her head is made of plastic by the way).
This might be the first time I've wanted an action figure's shoes for myself. I love these things.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with her smaller (5.5") Black Series Rey.
And here are the two BB-8 figures side-by-side.
And the whole gang of Black Series and Elite Series ladies. From Left to Right: Black Series Rey & BB-8, Elite Series Rey & BB-8, Elite Series Captain Phasma, and Black Series Captain Phasma.
And here she is with the recently-reviewed Boushh Diguise Leia.
