What It Is
The Star Wars stand-alone movie, Rogue One
, introduces audiences to several pivotal characters from the Rebel Alliance's history, and Hasbro's Black Series turns some of those characters into collectible action figures. The Star Wars The Black Series: Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu), from Hasbro, is a six-inch, Black Series figure of the Rebel Alliance character from the movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
. In Rogue One, Captain Cassian Andor, is a talented Rebel Alliance Intelligence officer, who has seen his fair share of combat. Captain Cassian Andor commands respect from his fellow Rebel Alliance members and the troops, that he leads with confidence. Captain Andor has a reputation for keeping a cool head, when under fire and completes his missions with minimal resources expended. This Black Series figure features the high level of detail and full articulation that Black Series figures are know for. Hasbro's Black Series Captain Cassian Andor is shown wearing his planet Eadu uniform. We're guessing, because the movie hasn't been released as of this review, that Eadu is a cold planet because, Captain Andor's uniform resembles the planet Hoth outfit worn in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
. Andor's outfit includes tan pants and a heavy-looking, hooded blue coat. The figure also has a hat with goggles, and comes with a small pistol and a medium rifle blaster. The pistol can fit in the figure's holster.

This Captain Andor action figure is sold in a nicely designed black and red box with a large clear plastic front so the Cassian Andor figure can be displayed without removing it from the box. However, the Captain Cassian Andor figure is fully articulated so it will also look great out of package, and positioned in various action poses.
Who It’s For
The Captain Cassian Andor Black Series six-inch figure is for Star Wars fans, ages 4 and up. We think kids will have fun playing with the Captain Andor figure, but it is really more for older fans and adult collectors who will want to collect and display the figure.
