Remember Ackbar’s Unceremonious Death? Forget That And Buy This Toy!

Hasbro

Remember how Grand Admiral Ackbar went out like a punk before Leia got to pull her Space Mary Poppins act in The Last Jedi? Don’t think about that or how the Disney Star Wars trilogy took a steaming dump all over the Original Trilogy characters. Instead, buy the new Return of the Jedi Black Series Ackbar figure! Can’t you feel that $27.99 loosening from your wallet at the sight of the Kenner-inspired blister card?

You know you want it. But, you better act fast because this memberberry will probably, totally, no doubt about it, sell out. That’s why it’s limited to two per customer. Hasbro has to keep these on lockdown. It’s not like Star Wars fans have lost their love of collecting after years of Sequel Trilogy figures and price hikes. This figure will ship around December 1st.

When I first looked at this figure, I was trying to figure out why he looked less detailed than the previously released Black Series Ackbar. That’s because Hasbro is trying to replicate the figure’s original orange look. Which also means there’s no wash or detailed paint on the toy. So, you’re paying a higher price for a reissued figure that looks like he was half-finished.

Hasbro didn’t pull this cheap stunt with the 40th anniversary The Empire Strikes Back figures. Why do that here? Ugh.

Ackbar led the defense of Mon Cala and masterminded the rebel attack on the second Death Star at the Battle of Endor. He became a Grand Admiral in the New Republic, winning many victories

At least he has an articulated mouth. That’s the only good thing I can really say. Just because a figure wasn’t that detailed in the 1980s doesn’t mean you should charge triple the price to replicate that effect today. Sigh.
