Title: Dark Vision Rey without hood
Post by: Darth Woo on February 26, 2021, 04:12:52 PM
Just in case anyone was wondering, I removed the hood and cloak.   I just can't stand the hard non-removable hoods on figures.  Same with Darth Revan.  They had a fully sculpted head that you can't fully appreciate cause of the hood.

I realized after seeing some photos of the actual costume that the cape and hood are actually one piece.  So, I decided to just go for it so I removed her hood.  Luckily the cape is indeed glued to the hood, even on the toy.  I can not remove and put it back on.  Cause of how the hood is sculpted, I think if I remove the tab on her back, it should still hold in place.  I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I didn't realize there was a scratch on her right cheek before cause the hood was on.  At least it's not too noticeable.  I looked at some old pictures and she had that scratch on her face before so it wasn't me accidentally scratching it when removing the hood.

Interesting. The head sculpt is actually pretty good. Too bad it doesn't come with a soft goods hood.

Hopefully this figure will be more widely distributed. I'd like to use it as a base for either a Barriss or a Luminara. Only ever seen 1 out in the wilds and I bought it.

I've only seen gold saber versions.  I want a silver saber version.  If I see one, I'll get it, and then I'll cut the tab off this Rey.
