Star Wars Elite Series C2-B5 Figure Review (shopDisney)

Star Wars Elite Series C2-B5 Figure
What It Is

Disney Store's C2-B5 Elite Series Die-Cast Action Figure 6'' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is a die-cast action figure, and part of the six-inch scale collection, of the Rebel Alliance droid, C2-B5, from the movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. C2-B5 is a black-plated Astromech droid who is part of the Galactic Empire, which is somewhat rare for an Astromech droid.  

This C2-B5 Elite Series Die-Cast action figure is made of solid-feeling, die-cast metal, which is a great material for replicating a Star Wars droid's metal body. This Rogue One Astromech action figure is highly detailed with multiple movie-specific elements including the character's black plated body with silver elements, and red sensor color. This C2-B5 die-cast figure also features a surprising amount of articulation for an Astromech figure. C2-B5's legs and treads are articulated, and the droid has a third tread that can be extended or retracted into the droid's body. Although this figure stands well on its own, it comes with the same figure display stand as the other figures in the collection. All the stands have the Star Wars logo printed on the base. 

Is It Fun?
This C2-B5 Elite Series figure is a premium, collectible action figure that is carefully sculpted to look like the movie character, possessing a unique die-cast construction. The character is one of the few Imperial Astromech Droids in the franchise's history, which makes the figure extra collectible. The die-cast material makes the C2-B5 figure too heavy to play with, however it's mainly intended for collecting and displaying, as opposed to play.
Who It’s For
This C2-B5 action figure is designed for Star Wars fans and collectors. The package states that it is for ages 3 and up, however, the figure's main audience will be older fans and adult collectors who will want to display the C2-B5, as opposed to young fans, looking for a figure to play with.
What To Be Aware Of

To have the figure look good in the clear window package requires multiple thick wires tying it into position. Untying, and removing the wires can be annoying, however, worth it, if you plan to display the K-2SO figure out of package. However, the figure looks so good in package, many people will opt to keep the package sealed.

In addition to this C2-B5 figure, this wave of figures includes Sergeant Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian Andor, Chirrut Imwe, Bodhi Rook, Baze Malbus, K-2SO, and an Imperial Death Trooper. Each of the figures are sold separately.
