CW: Cad Bane



According to Jedi Wiki Achieves Cad Bane was born a “Duros” Male on the Plant Duro. Which he then took up his role as a Bounty Hunter and a ruthless one at that!
Only has the bounty in mind during missions, Even kills his Hirer if his payment is late or his "co-workers" for a larger share....


As Jango the galaxy best fell in the start of the Clone Wars, Bane quickly rose to fame and is considered a veteran in his line of work.

Bane made his first appearance in the CW series (CW episode 22: Hostage Crisis), with his gang of bounty hunters and heads to the capital city of Corusant to capture the East Wing of the Senate Building in order to free Zitro The Hutt.

According to Wiki, this is the concept drawing Cad Bane was base on (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cad_Bane):

Weapons & Accessories:
1)2X Blaster pistols (model with scope)
2)1X Sniper Riffle.
3)1X Removable Hat
4)2X Working Holsters



Blaster Pistols (Model with Scope)


Sniper Riffle

Removable Hat



Working Holsters:



Other detailing to take note :

Booster rockets on boot



Articulations:

Facial Sculpt:

Likes:
1) Spot On detailing of face sculpt & clothes.

2) The HAT! As you can pose it however way you like it and it still stays in place.

Dislikes:
1) Blaster pistols to flimsy, for my liking

2) Tube on his arm to elbow…each time you strike a pose by moving the arm & elbow the tube will bane it back in place, thus making posing rather frustrating…

3) Limited articulation in the torso & legs


My Verdict:
Wasn’t too keen on this figure from the start…however upon receiving this figure, I was like WOW!

The best Photo toy Subject I have ever taken….

Okay back to the figure, as I said great looking figure!

Spot with the detailing, really projects/portraits the bad ass “Bounty Hunter” Bane is in the CW series.


However the main downside of the figure is the limited articulation around the legs & hips and to make it worst they added tubes which are not flexible on his arms to his elbows, which makes it even harder to pose…

IF you can look pass the articulation issue, then Bane is really a figure worth getting and to collect. Maybe Hasbro will remake a more articulated figure, just like they did with Yoda.

Rating: 8/10
