STAR WARS: RESISTANCE (HASBRO)
“A salvager who scours the oceans and islands of Castilon for crashed starships, Synara keeps much to herself.”
Well, I sure hope you liked yesterday’s Star Wars: Resistance-themed review, because there’s two more of these suckers where that one came from. Yes, let’s jump into the further adventures of Ethan reviewing toys from a show he’s seen like three episodes of! That’s always fun and exciting, isn’t it? And this time, I’m even reviewing a character from beyond the episodes I’ve watched! Yay! Let’s have a look at *checks packaging* Synara San!
THE FIGURE ITSELF
Synara San is another figure from the basic assortment of Star Wars: Resistance figures. She’s the last of the “heroic” characters from the assortment, with the remaining slots being filled by General Pyre and a Stormtrooper. The figure stands 3 3/4 inches tall and she has 5 points of articulation. Synara’s another all-new sculpt, and definitely another nice one. She’s actually a little bit pre-posed, with a sort of shifted weight approach. It’s a very natural appearance, and sells that she’s got that slightly seedier background than the others. Sculpturally, she’s also one of the less stylistic figures in the set, and I dare say she wouldn’t look too out of place with the main line figures. I like the scavanged gear aspect of this figure, and I’m especially a fan of the various Biker Scout stuff she’s got. That’s a really cool touch. Synara’s paint scheme is a little more subdued than some of the others in the assortment, but it’s still pretty eye-catching, and I liked how crisp it is, especially on her face. She doesn’t have any of the major application issues that Tora did, which is a definite plus in my book. Synara is packed with a removable helmet (which is of a similar design to the one Lando was sporting in Jedi) and a blaster pistol, which is a pretty nice combo.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
I got Synara at the same time as Tora, a little bit after the kind of “meh” Triple Force Friday launch. I was itching for some more toyetic Star Wars love, and these guys definitely worked to tide me over. While I mostly just grabbed Synara because I was grabbing everything Target had on clearance from the line, and not so much because her specific design appealed to me, I do have to say I really like the figure a lot after getting to sit down and mess with her a bit.
