My Collection: Cloak of Darkness



Captain Argyus: This traitor is a solid figure. The sculpting of his curious hair-do is well done. He has standard clone armor and articulation, with a new shoulder and helmet. However the plastic in the helmet is a bit soft, and only holds its form well on his head. But other than that this is a great figure.

Asajj Ventress: The Sith assassin is one of the best figures in the Clone Wars line. She has great articulation in her legs and a removable fabric skirt. Asajj is beautifully sculpted and holds twin lightsabers that connect together. The only issue with the figure is that there is no articulation in the elbows, but other than that, it's perfect.

Ahsoka Tano: This is the first Ahsoka action figure ever made. The detail is pretty good but a bit lacking on the face. The cloth skirt allows for easy posing. However the shoulder joints are unusually large and there is no elbow articulation. Both hands can only loosely hold the lightsaber. Some versions of this figure come with a backpack and Rotta the Hutt, but the one I got was in a battle-pack and lacked those accessories.

Luminara Unduli: This is one of the better Jedi figures. Luminara has good articulation throughout and also includes a cloth skirt that allows a variety of poses. The only thing that she lacks is ball jointed hips, but I guess she's not one to do splits. A drawback to this figure is that her hands don't grip her lightsaber very well, a common problem in the Clone Wars line.

Commander Gree: Gree is a cool looking figure. He uses the standard clone body and helmet. Unique features include holsters at his belt, an ammunition strap over his torso, his green paint detailing, and a reddish brown double mohawk.

41st Elite Corps Troopers: Gree's troops are basic repaints of the 212th clone figure. The only difference is that they have green paint instead of yellowish orange. They have standard articulation and each came with a rotary cannon.
