Death Watch Leader and Governor Of Concordia Pre Vizsla was released individually carded during the The Clone Wars Collection in 2010. Pre Vizsla was introduced to audiences in the episode The Mandalore Plot of the second season of The Clone Wars animated TV show.
Hasbro made Pre Vizsla super articulated with 12 ball-joints and 2 swivel joints. The ball-joints are in the neck, both shoulders, elbows, the waist, both legs, knees and ankles. The swivel joints are in both wrists. Vizsla has no problems standing by himself without the help of the included stand. The figure came with 6 accessories, a darksaber, 2 blasters, a jetpack, a helmet and a removable soft-goods cape. All accessories are a good fit, with the exception of the jetpack. It needs to be plugged into the back of the figure, but the peg is too short, and it sits very loosely. Every time you reposition the soft-goods cape, the jetpack is likely to fall off. The blasters are an OK fit for either of Pre Vizsla's hands, but they are a really good fit for both of the holsters. The darksaber fits great, and the helmet covers the entire head nicely. Unfortunately, the darksaber can't be attached to the figure's back like it was seen in The Mandalore Plot episode, where Vizsla pulled it from his back all "Ninja-like". However, the cape can be removed easily, and this way it's possible to display the figure before Pre Vizsla fought Obi-Wan Kenobi, or after wards.
The paint application on Pre Vizsla is cleanly applied, and matches the TV-show character very closely. Even the cape is painted nicely with a big Death Watch symbol on it. The figure was sculpted superbly, with well hidden joints and non-bulky-looking blasters and holsters. Especially the determined looking face sculpt turned out nicely. All in all, this super articulated Pre Vizsla figure is very well done, and even though the jetpack doesn't really want to stay in place all that well, it still makes a fantastic addition to any animated-style Clone Wars collection!
Pre Vizsla is governor of Concordia, the moon orbiting Mandalore. Vizsla appears to support peace and criticizes the Death Watch, a violent group of Mandalorians who want to return to their warrior past. But when Obi-Wan discovers that Vizsla is actually the leader of the Death Watch, the governor tries to silence the Jedi in a duel - darksaber to lightsaber.
