The claw weapon is how Hasbro grabbed a few extra pennies (or dollars) for this release - the "Combine!" weapon could connect with Admiral Ackbar's backpack and Tasu Leech's spare pistol to make some sort of a Power Loader-esque harness. It has some metallic blue and silver deco, and no moving parts. I dislike it because it looks fun, and isn't - if the claw could grip things, or close, I'd be enjoying it more. One of my big sore spots right now is that Star Wars figures don't do much of anything interesting these days. I don't need firing rockets or action features everywhere, but a few would be nice - or just drop non-show, un-Star Wars-y weapons and save me a dollar. I promise I will make up for it by army building. (Hey, I outfitted my Imperial Troop Transport. I'm good for it.)
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
