A Look at the Bandai S.H. Figuarts Mace Windu Action FigureSeptember 19, 2016
For Star Wars aficionados with a penchant for madly authentic and highly poseable action figures, the Bandai S.H. Figuarts depiction of Mace Windu is worth a look.
Another craveable entry in Bandais of Star Wars-inspired model kits, replicas, and assorted toys; the 6-inch tall Mace Windu features a screen-faithful painted PVC/ABS sculpt that that captures the look of the moribund master Jedi with remarkable fidelity. Typical of Bandais S.H. Figuarts collection, the Mace Windu figure is extensively articulated with an array of joints throughout the legs arms, torso, and neck. The poseability is welcome and a clear selling point, though the many joints detract a bit from the overall look up close. The piece is remarkably sturdy and it’s balanced enough to remain upright without a stand even when assuming some rather dynamic poses. Complementing the extensive range of motion is Maces molded multi-part plastic tunic. It’s thin and flexible enough to allow for an extensive range of movement while approximating the look of fabric to the greatest extent possible given the material.
The Bandai S.H. Figuarts Mace Windu Action Figure comes with a cache of accessories including six interchangeable hands (left and right fists, lightsaber grips, and open hands), a removable lightsaber hilt (with a prong that allows it to be securely fastened to a notch on the right left side of the figures belt), a lit lightsaber (with a removable translucent purple blade), and a swappable head sculpt with an alternate (slightly angrier) portrait that captures the no-nonsense visage of actor, Samuel L. Jackson, as thoroughly as the default portrait.
For those Star Wars collectors intent on snagging the Bandai S.H. Figuarts Mace Windu Action Figure, it can be found online from multiple retailers at prices that generally range between $40 and $80 USD.
