Life In Plastic: TOY REVIEW: Constable Zuvio (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)

ConstableZuvio

Friday, September 4, was Force Friday, the special launch date for the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens product line.  Stores were packed!  People were overrun!  Contests were held!  I went to Toys R Us on Saturday, and this was the only thing left:

Poor Zuvio.  Anyway, this guy has een prominent in both the 3 3/4″ line (the one I picked up) and the 6″ scale Black line.  So, what sort of prominent character is Constable Zuvio?

ConstableZuvio-Face

I’ll be honest, I have no clue.  It looks like he’s law enforcement on Planet Jakku, and if I were a betting man I would guess that he has maybe one scene and a line or two, tops.  But hey, he’s a new alien!

ConstableZuvio-Articulation

In the last few years, Star Wars has cheaped its way back to the 1970s – note the five points of articulation, and hilariously clumsy robe cut for his legs.  That’s it, folks.  Zuvio can’t even sit like a normal human being!

ConstableZuvio-Sit

But the sculpt is decent, I will give it that – he clearly isn’t human, but exactly what he is remains to be seen.  I assume he’ll be like Dexter Jettster from Attack of the Clones: Prominent in the first wave of toys, one scene in the movie.

ConstableZuvio-Axes

Aside from his rifle and backpack, Zuvio also comes with two pieces of a build-a-droid, which coincidentally look like axes – this means he has more weapons, though they are almost too big for his hands.

ConstableZuvio-Stand

Overall, it’s not a bad deal for about $7, it just isn’t anywhere near what we’ve gotten in years past.

ConstableZuvio-CadBane

Constable Zuvio could function as an army builder, but this really is just speculation.  If he ends up really prominent andcool in the movie, my opinion will likely do a 180.  But if he’s just a random alien, then he isn’t s interesting as the many other aliens inhabint the Star Wars film series.  But hey – the toys are out!  And let the speculation begin!

  1. Gah!!! 5-points of articulation. I was sure we were going to get past this. I was sure it was going to end with the Rebels garbage they were putting out. Oh well, I guess I will just focus on the 6 inch line…if they ever come back into the store.
