Star Wars Black Series jumps back and forth between classic characters and whatever the movie of the moment is, many times splitting waves between the two. In 2016, the fans voted Jaina Solo winner of the fans choice award, and she’s now out and about ready for your shelves in the latest case. Based on the now non-canon Legends extended universe from before Disney picked up Star Wars and continued the lore, Jaina Solo is the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia. She and her twin brother Jacen Solo both wield Force powers and train in the Jedi ways. Jaina is also a great pilot. This version of Jaina has her in all black with a Rebel Alliance helmet and flight gear, blaster on the hip, and purple lightsaber. Let’s take a look along with some additional thoughts after the break courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
Star Wars Black Series Jaina Solo
She’s a fantastic figure, yet again proving that when Hasbro doesn’t need to nail photo-realistic sculpts they really shine. A Solo-esque smirk is present along with great gear and paint on the helmet. She has an awesome range of articulation, her elbow joints go well beyond 90 degrees allowing for some awesome gun and lightsaber poses. Weathering and paint are solid. The face paint was also good, however my particular copy had an offset eye which is really distracting and ticks me off every time I look at it. Whether it’s robots or humans applying the paint, with a brush or a printer, this seems to happen way too often. Bottom line, great figure, just do your best to check the eyes before you hit checkout!
