I hope she's an interesting character to begin with, might wait and see with this one.

Don´t know anything about this character yet, but just from the looks... I guess she is some kind of Bounty Hunter ? Merc ?

Love the flintlock-like look of the guns

Hopefully due to release after the movie comes out, so I can make my mind up based on how she comes across on film. I wonder if she'll take the helmet off at all, and if so will we get a second head (that they're not showing right now for spoilery reasons)

I'll buy this SUPER COOL looking design figure, no matter what, but as other's have already noted - I hope the character is cool well written.

Phasma is still great looking design/figure but the character seemed very underdeveloped.

Slave I helmet lol

I think this is such a cool looking character that I'm going to pick it up. I know she may end up being lame in the movie but whatevs.

Gotta admit that's an awesome looking helmet, did anyone else notice the "eye of Providence" looking belt buckle she's wearing?

Hahaha, good one.

I really like the look of this design though. I wonder if they take their helmet off in the movie?
I would imagine they would. I know they never showed Gwendoline Christie as Phasma but Keri Russell has been around a lot longer and has worked with JJ before so I'm thinking they'll show her.

I look forward to having this figure, not just because I liked the character and the figure looks cool, but because my Babu Frik will have someone to stand by.

She didn't really do enough in the movie to warrant a buy for me. And the look is a bit too ostentatious to pick her up to be a random backgrounder. The slot really should have gone to Indiana Jones Poe....

Still baffled why Zorii is packed @ 2 per case, when 3 of the other figs in the wave that are more desirable are only packed @ 1. 🤔


New movie vs Old movies. They're going to go with things that promote the new movie. It's Marketing 101.

:ROFLMAO: Looking at the dearth of product for TROS @ the movie's premiere, Hasbro is really not going out of their way to "promote" it - that ship has already sailed. However, even if that was the case in this instance, and I don't believe it is, then double packing the Knight of Ren would have made much more sense. Considering how popular pretty much every clone is and the upcoming premiere of TCW, I don't see how not having Bly @ 2 per case is justified. And, why is Yavin Luke getting carried forward in this wave? He's already double-packed in the most recent wave and is widely available @ 50% off, not to mention the deluxe exclusive that's also easily obtainable.

It's still a baffling decision when the ST has not exactly caught on with collectors, because she's bound to pegwarm. As @Etain said, there's more than enough history of the clone commanders becoming scarce and wanted items to double-pack Bly, and Dooku's been wanted for so long that I'm shocked he's not double-packed. Instead, Zorii will become another Holdo situation, released well after the "new" movie has faded from the memory for most consumers. Hell, the second red trooper is also a great candidate to flop at retail.

Not to pile on, but if the thinking is you have to double pack figures from the new thing you're trying to promote...that sounds like a reason to double up on the Clone Commander, since this wave will come out while the new season of The Clone Wars is airing.

That said, despite her character being undercooked (like everything else in TROS in my opinion), I definitely see myself grabbing her at a discount price sometime down the line. The art deco pirate design is just too cool.

Maybe my area is just good at getting stock moving, but aside from Jannah and Rey, the only other things that pegwarm are Cassian's, Jyn Erso's and some Krennic's. Not that Holdo or Rose were considered "saught after", but they definitely didn't pegwarm the way I've read others make them out to.

I think Zorii falls into the category of "looks cool enough to be some random bounty hunter" for people that don't care about the ST. I don't think she'll pegwarm any hard than the 5 I mentioned, personally.

Yeah, I don't think she'll pegwarm either. I'm more concerned about the scarcity of the more sought after, single packed figures that'll surely occur due to her taking two spots in the case.

Zorii has intrinsic value as an action figure though, she’s not wearing a purple burlap sack. Holdo was also released much longer after The Last Jedi, Zorii will be out before the DVD release.

I am not going out of my mind over the sequel trilogy, (honestly - I might like it a tiny bit more the prequels?)
I like ALL nine movies enough to own them on blu ray/dvd and watch again once every 1-3 years.
(I think I liked Solo & Rogue One more than the prequel or sequel trilogy. And also own these on blue ray.)

But I buy TONS of action figures from all different franchises, not knowing a single thing about a character or their back story.

DOES IT LOOK COOL?
IS IT WELL MADE?
IS IT AFFORDABLE?


Zorii def fits all three of those criteria, and I already have a preorder in. Looking forward to getting the figure in hand!

Wasn't sure if I was going to go for this one or not. But after seeing the reveal, I'll probably get one now. I know this is going to sound kinda strange, but I'd like to see a new FINN in his ROS clothes as well. We haven't had a figure of him since TFA.
