CW-31: Captain Argyus

Argyus, a human male and the Captain of the Senate Commando, yet another elite group of the Senate Guard.

As seen in the the CW series: Episode 9 "Cloak of Darkness", Argyus was entrusted in escorting Viceroy Nut Gunray to Coruscant alongside Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and Padawan Ahsoka.

"Sometimes being a good soldier means doing what you think is right." Argyus to Ahsoka

Unknown to the Republic, Argyus was bribed by the Separatist into adding the escape of Gunray.

Moreover Argyus and Dooku were friends, as when Argyus was a recruit, the ship he was escorting fell under separatist attack and Argyus was hurt badly, which Dooku was aboard and save his life.

In the end Argyus was successful in completing his mission and was boosting to Ventress , that he would report to Dooku on his success, thus removing the credit from Ventress.

That's when Ventress drove the light through the pilot seat into Argyus chest, which killed him instantly.

A sad ending for Argyus but he had that coming with his arrogance overflowing.


Now, for the figure which i have been waiting for! every since i first saw Argyus in the series, it was a must get for me....and now i finally got it!


Points of Interest:

1)Comes with nicely detailed Blaster deflector shoulder pad armor:

However its not removable, as seen below:

A new helmet sculpt (very Greek looking), the standard senate commando comes with a black visor. (cant wait for those to be made)

Packaging:
image packaging is with reference to: www.rebelscum.com


Weapons & Accessories:
- 1x DC-15 blaster pistol
- 1X Missile launcher
Articulation:

My Comments:

Likes:


- Overall Great looking Figure! best view of the figures is from the side.


- Shoulder Pad and its detailed illustration really seals the deal on the purchase...

Dislikes:

- The COLOR! too light...

- Helmet check piece too flimsy, should be harder.

My Verdict:

Really Glad Hasbro made this! it came out looking Awesome!

The ancient looking Greek Soldier looking helmet and the clone trooper armor with an nicely detailed shoulder pad was a nice mix! like beacon & eggs (random right?)

I only have issue with the color, as the Senate Commando or Argyus for that matter had darker blue colored armor in the series!

The light blue given to this figure isn't bad, but it ain't great either!

However having said that, i hope Hasbro will revised the senate commando, if they are ever are going to produce that! and hopefully Argyus color will still be able to fit in with his troopers....

Ratings:

Overall: 9/10

Packaging: 7/10

Figure: 9/10 (minus point on the color)

    most out of such training, it is advisable to invest in a training center that offers the full range of courses you will
    need. There are no signs of breathing or response to the rescuer.

  17. Today, entire college programs are done online and students
    are now able to earn degrees with minimal class
    room time. Recertification will also be required after the lapse of
    a certain time period. Some people will prefer to teach CPR to
    the general public.

  18. You can begin the course immediately or return at a later date to accomplish this program.
    But there are also many programs available online for cheap or for free.
