Star Wars - ZORII BLISS!

Star Wars 6" Black Series #103 - Zorii Bliss (Rise of Skywalker) - Hasbro 2020

Zorii Bliss was an unexpectedly fun character in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. When the Force Friday merch was first unveiled a few months before the movie, I immediately paid attention to the random new female (there was a 3.75" figure of her released in the Fall). I was amused that she looked so much like the Rocketeer and I assumed she would be some blink-and-you-miss-her bounty hunter. When I read that she was played by Keri Russell (and also that she would have purple hair!), I had an inkling that the character would be more substantial. Then when I finally saw her on screen she had such dynamic chemistry with Poe that I was instantly mesmerized. Their implied romantic history and their time as spice runners gave some delicious backstory to Poe. I only wish she has some more screen time (and that her rumored purple hair made an appearance). I'm really glad she got the Black Series treatment. She was a really great addition to the Star Wars universe. Let's check out Zorii Bliss below!

Zorii comes with two antique-looking handguns (that fit nicely in her holsters).

UPDATE: This was a surprise to me. I didn't realize until a reader pointed it out that Zorii's visor comes off. There's a point in the movie where Poe and Zorii are sitting next to each other and looking out over the city. In these scenes, Zorii's eyes are exposed and it's the first glimpse that it's actually Keri Russell behind the mask. Such a cool character. And the engineering behind this visor is amazing. It fits on so tight and seamless that it took a lot of force to pry it off.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the three Rise of Skywalker ladies together: Rey, Zorii Bliss, and Jannah.

And I could help snapping a pic of her with the new Disney Select Rocketeer from DST.



  1. How come you didn't take her vizor off?

    1. Wow. Honestly I have no idea it was removable. I just added more pictures above. You just made my day! Thanks

  2. Great character and design. Wish they would have done more character development on her but there was certainly a lot crammed into the movie.
