Figure of the Day 40 – Tarkin


Series: Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
Release Date: 2005
Comments: Oh, what a tease you are George Lucas.  Fans got all aflutter when they learned that Tarkin was going to be in the 3rd prequel movie.  When all was said and done, we did get our Tarkin; just a very small amount (seconds!)

But as we’ve learned time and time again, it only takes seconds though to score yourself a figure.  Released as part of the Revenge of the Sith movie line, the fans got their 2nd ever chance at a Tarkin figure.  The sculpt and likeness are leaps and bounds over that first Grand Moff Tarkin, so this was a welcome addition to the ranks.  And despite a younger appearance he made a good stand in for the older, Moff-ier, Tarkin (and fans knew it was just a matter of time for an Ep IV repaint).    Another great Star Wars figure of a dude who just stands there!  Fun!
