The "Combine!" accessory is a chair. Sort of. It's a claw which serves as sort of a seat belt, so the pilot can sit on it and not fall off. But what is it? It's not really a chair - it's angled strangely. It's not quite a torture device or a form of restraint. It doesn't seem to be an ejector seat. It's white and grey, with some purple markings. It combines with two other weapons to make another thing. I don't get it. I hope Hasbro uses its potentially already abandoned Pulse platform to show off and explain these things. I feel that there must be some story behind this stuff - there was no room for it on the packaging, so I'm just left with weird gear.
The claw arm has a hole on top to connect to gizmos from the Resistance Trooper and Poe Dameron, or others - they're pretty much all compatible. AThe key difference here in "Space," as opposed to "Jungle," is that the thing looks like a cohesive whole. There are tabs and slots on the other pieces that are clearly designed to fit with one another exclusively, and the end result is a mini cannon that looks like it could have come out of a mid-1980s Kenner sketchbook. Although as guns go, it is a little goofy. I know "tolerable" isn't high praise, but this is a far better execution of the concept than the jungle... thing.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
