Galaxy of Adventures - REY!

Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker - Galaxy of Adventures 5" - Rey - Hasbro 2019

I'm unexpectedly ecstatic about this new Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures line from Hasbro. I am only vaguely aware of the Disney animated mini-episodes featuring an assortment of the most popular Star Wars characters. Last year I noticed the tie-in wave of 3.75" figures on the shelves in tubes with animated-style graphics. But the figures inside seemed like the same old style I had seen a million times. But then a couple days ago I came across this new 5" impressively articulated, adorably stylized series of figures at Target. I love how Rey has this mischievous grin and big ears. It's almost as if Hasbro was as let-down by the Toy Box Rey as I was and decided to give us an apology figure. I can't wait to see what future characters will be included. At the very least I know we'll see a Leia since she is featured in so many of the Galaxy of Adventures illustrations. I'm excited for what other surprise releases we'll see this time next week on Force Friday. I'm already planning out my hunting route. Let's check out Rey below!

This Rey is very well articulated. I think her articulation is identical to the 6" Black Series. The exception is the wrists. As far as I can tell this figure has only swivel wrists as opposed to hinge or ball wrists.

Rey comes with a small blaster gun (that fits snugly in her holster) and a light-saber.

Rey has an action feature of a spring-loaded waist (like a lot of the old He-Man figures). If you swivel her waist, she'll spring back to the forward position, swinging her light saber through the air in the process.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is a collection of my Reys. From Left to Right: Disney Elite, 3.75" Black Series, Limited Articulation Version, Galaxy of Adventures, 6" Black Series, and Disney Toy Box.
