The Rise of Skywalker - REY!

Star Wars 6" Black Series #91 - Rey & D-O (Rise of Skywalker) - Hasbro 2019 

I have had this review sitting as a draft for about 14 months. Back in Fall of 2019 when I purchased and photographed this Rey, I was a little burnt out on Star Wars figures, especially Rey. Don't get me wrong, I loved all the new movies and I adore Rey, but I have posted a lot of reviews for this character. And although this specific figure was a big technical improvement over most of its predecessors, the articulation was identical to other Black Series figures and this costume was already the subject of 9 Rey posts (of 14). But some real incentive came today when I was editing pics for an even newer Rey figure (the Dark Side Vision version) and I saw this old post still sitting as a draft. I'm a little obsessive about having posts like these be in the correct order so there was no more procrastinating. This Rey is mostly notable for her face sculpt. Hasbro is constantly upping their game with face scanning/printing technology, and this is easily the best Daisy Ridley likeness so far. Let's check out Rey below!

The likeness really is great. They even attempted the little dimple effect at the corner of her mouth.

Rey comes with her staff, lightsaber, blaster, and the D-O droid.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Rey with the Second Sister Inquisitor figure that was released at the same time.

And here she is with the 2015 Black Series Rey from The Force Awakens. These outfits are essentially the same (she's shed some armbands in the course of three films), but it's amazing to see how much the figures have improved in that time.
