Star Wars Black Series - VAL!

Star Wars 6 " Black Series #71 (Solo Movie) - Val (Vandor-1) - Hasbro 2018

This is one of those figures I've had for a while now but just never got around to posting on. Thandie Newton's portrayal of Val in Solo: A Star Wars Story was one of my favorite parts of the film. She always struck me as an actor who focused on award-caliber films, and not necessarily taking the roles that would get her made into an action figure. But now between Westworld and Solo, we're likely to see several figures of her in a short time. I always think that if I were an actor I would strive for roles that would get me immortalized in plastic. Johnny Depp is that actor who has played the most characters deemed worthy of action figures, and I would love to see Thandie head down that same path. This figure itself is great. I never realized how much I liked her outfit while watching the movie. I remember thinking the exact opposite about Qi'Ra (disliking the outfit on the toy, but thinking it looked cool with all the cinematic filters toning it down). But I think Val looks like a funky stylish aviator and I love it. Let's check her out!

Val comes with a single large handgun. It looks like a pistol but it's actually rather large. 
I guess you'd refer to it as a blaster in Star Wars lingo.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Val with my two other Solo ladies: L3-37 and Qi'Ra.
