I'm really excited for the next movie in the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This movie takes place shortly before A New Hope and focuses on the Rebel mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. I love prequel stories like this that expand upon an established story. Three of my all-time favorite properties thrilled me with expanded comic storylines in the form of Robotech: Invasion, Legends of the the Dark Crystal, and Return to Labyrinth. All three of these books just made me love the original stories even more, and I'm expecting that Rogue One will do the same for my love of Star Wars. The casting of Felicity Jones in the role of Sergeant Jyn Erso seems perfect. I loved her in Theory of Everything and she definitely has that "Star Wars look" like Carrie Fisher, Natalie Portman, and Daisy Ridley before her. I picked up this figure at midnight on Force Friday but am just getting around to reviewing her now. At least I got it done before the movie came out! Let's check out Jyn Erso below!
Jyn's headwrap and vest are removable. Her belt and holster are probably also removable, but it would require popping off a limb. Her only true accessory is a small pistol.
Time for some Comparison Pics!
Here she is with last year's Black Series Rey.
And here she with the the Elite Series Jyn Erso.
