STAR WARS: RESISTANCE (HASBRO)
“A daring pilot at the Colossus station with a sense of flair and competitiveness, Torra Doza has the combined energy of a hotshot ace and a fifteen-year old.”
Okay, what else do I have that I can review? *Looks around desk* Hey, do you guys want to read about some more Star Wars stuff? I’ve got a bunch of that. I mean, it’s kind of new. Demented and sad, but kinda new. In 2018, Disney launched a sequel-era Star Wars cartoon, dubbed Star Wars: Resistance, alongside a small assortment of figures based on the characters from the show. Included in the line were a number of the Resistance pilots featured in the series. I’ll be looking at one of them, Torra Doza, today!
THE FIGURE ITSELF
Torra Doza is another basic figure from the first (and only) assortment of Star Wars Resistance figures. She stands 3 1/2 inches tall and has 5 points of articulation. Torra’s sculpt is all-new to her, and like the others I’ve looked at so far, it’s a pretty spot-on recreation of her animation model from the show. It’s not quite as sharp a sculpt as Kaz’s, but it’s still got some pretty cool little details going into it, especially on the boots and gloves. The rest of the details are very clean looking, and the figure’s certainly quite slick. Rather than getting a removable helmet (which would no doubt be quite difficult with her hair), Torra has a second head, with the helmet permanently attached. It’s fairly nice, but the presence of the eyes makes it look really weird if you have her holding it while unmasked. Torra’s paintwork is quite colorful, as is the case with most of the Resistance figures. I appreciate the very bright colors, as they aren’t always as common with Star Wars figures. The application on the head is very sharp, but the body suffers a bit. In particular, on my figure the paint on her neck is mostly covered by the blue of the jumpsuit, rather than being the appropriate flesh tone. Though her hand appears to be molded for a blaster of some sort, Torra’s only accessory is the previously mentioned helmeted head. It feels a little light, and is made worse by the fact that she’s yet another pilot without a ship to fly.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
After the lack of any sort of basic line component to the Rise of Skywalker product, I decided I wanted at least a little bit of a 5POA fix, and set about tracking down these guys, seeing as I’d liked the Poe figure so much. Fortunately for me, that was right around the time that Target was clearancing them out, so I was able to get a handful of the figures that way, Torra included. The paint’s a bit of a mess, and I wish she had at least one more accessory, but I do really quite like this figure.
