Star Wars 6" Black Series - MAZ KANATA!

Star Wars: The Black Series #49 The Last Jedi - Maz Kanata - Hasbro 2017

This is by far my favorite Star Wars figure in a long time. In my humble opinion, Maz Kanata was one of the biggest highlights of The Force Awakens. As a sort of Yoda for the new generation, Maz is wise, cantankerous, and resourceful in the best ways possible. When word came out about a major CGI character, I think a lot of us feared another Jar-Jar or a remastered Jabba, but the effects were perfect and Maz stole her scenes. I hope she plays a role in the upcoming movies, although honestly I can't imagine how. This action figure is just great. The details, texture, and paint apps are completely solid, and her articulation translates very well onto a unique buck. And it may be because this figure is the first truly alien-look Star Wars Black Series figure I've bought, but I think the likeness is spot-on. It's been a while since I've done this, but I literally carried her with me to and from work for a few days so I could keep playing with her. I like to think my coworkers were very impressed. Let's check out Maz below!

SIDE NOTE: I'm restarting the social media arm of this blog (after years of being lazy). I made a new Instagram account (shesfantasticmadeofplastic) where I'll be posting pics of purchases, exciting press photos, toy events, and store finds. And I'll try to post links to new blog reviews on my Facebook. Click the links on the Right. Thanks!

Apparently Maz is known for being resourceful and making her own clothes. The knit texture of her shirt and socks are just great. Not to mention her beads and the stitching on her vest.

Maz comes with a gun and a treasure chest that holds the famed lightsaber.

Oh yeah, and the best thing about this figure is that her goggles move down and fit great against her eyes. Normally transparent lens are a disaster on action figures, but this is so well done it makes me giddy.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Maz with the two other Last Jedi figures I picked up on Force Friday: General Organa and Rey.
