This Disney Star Tours Officer action figure was released in a multipack as a Disney exclusive in May 2010, and was limited to 15,000 pieces. Disney likes to keep things fresh by updating their attractions over the years to keep it appealing for their guests. They also like to update their Disney Cast Member outfits, hence the changes in style and color over the years. This action figure's paint scheme is based on the more modern Disney Cast Member outfits from 2009/2010.
The figure is a simple repaint of the previously released POTJ Imperial Officer from 2001, hence it has only 8 joints, and is lacking any joints below the waist. There are also no ball-joints anywhere, which will limit you as to how you can position the figure. Hasbro didn't include any weapons, probably due to the fact that Star Tours Officers don't carry any weapons either. However, to spice things up a little bit, a blaster would have been appropriate to include.
The paint application is cleanly applied, but feels very simple. Since this figure is based on the previously released POTJ Imperial Officer, the entire outfit is inaccurate for a cast member. All in all, this Star Tours Officer action figure is a below average figure, one of the worst actually in recent history. Using a 9 year old mold, just repainting it, not including any weapons and just giving it a different name is cheap on Hasbro's part. This figure should only appeal to either completists, or big, big super-fans of Disney's STAR TOURS ride.
