Star Wars - JANNAH!

Star Wars 6" Black Series #98 - Jannah (Rise of Skywalker) - Hasbro 2019

I thought Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was fantastic. The story was solid, the characters were on point, and it was surprisingly funny. My biggest gripes with movies like Star Wars are when certain scenes defy the laws of physics. I can suspend my disbelief for the moment but my sciencey brain scoffs (usually laughing out loud in the theatre). But these impractical scenes never ruin a movie for me. I'm saying this because the scene that make me guffaw the most in Skywalker featured this new character Jannah. I don't want to give away any spoilers for the movie, so I'm just going to talk about my impressions of this toy. I'm always impressed by the new focus on racial diversity on the Star Wars franchise, and I especially love seeing kickass women of color. I also have a fascination with archery and crossbows, so this character is a natural draw for me. Naomi Ackie is a new actor to me, but I was excited to see that she was cast in that unaired Game of Thrones prequel pilot. Let's check out Jannah below!

Jannah comes with a bow/crossbow, a single loose arrow, a cluster of arrows, a quiver, and a handgun.

Time for a Comparison Pic!



  1. I liked the movie as well and though her character was cool even for the short time we see her. I think I know which scene you are thinking about and I understand. Fun post and great look at her figure. Now that I've seen the movie I'm more vested in these new figures and she may be one I look to pick up.

  2. Neat figure. Great sculpting. Still haven't seen the movie. Perhaps this Saturday.

  4. A couple of scientific categories are covered by the Star Wars line of toys, most notably astronomy. One of the coolest Return of the Jedi, astronomy-related Star Wars toys is the Death Star Planetarium.
