Hot Toys Rogue One 1/6th scale Jyn Erso Collectible Figure (Deluxe Version) Review 1

This was part of my November 2017 haul - see the toy blog post HERE

Putting behind a checkered past by lending her skills to a greater cause, Jyn Erso is impetuous, defiant, and eager to bring the battle to the Empire. Used to operating alone, she finds higher purpose by taking on a desperate mission for the Rebel Alliance.

Jyn Erso is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed by English actress Felicity Jones in the 2016 film Rogue One. Jyn is a former criminal who aids the Rebel Alliance in a desperate attempt to steal the plans to the Death Star, a powerful weapon possessed by the Empire. Critics have compared Jyn to the characterization of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in the Star Wars original trilogy and Rey (Daisy Ridley) in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.


This is the Hot Toys MMS405 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 1/6th scale Jyn Erso Collectible Figure (Deluxe Version) although from the picture you really can't tell whether it's deluxe or not as she is wearing the outfit (costume) that is included with the standard version. I enjoyed the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story even though it's a standalone piece and not part of any trilogy. I liked that some of the battles were on land, very gritty and realistic as compared to the CGI-laden battles in Episodes I, II and III.

This deluxe version comes with a specially designed packaging box.


Upon removal of the standard slip-case cover, you don't see the usual window display box but a specially designed box packaging similar to the Hot Toys MMS403 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 1/6th scale Chirrut Îmwe Collectible Figure Deluxe Version packaging. The design looks very oriental and Jyn's name can be seen amid the Chinese looking characters.


The deluxe version comes with Four (4) blaster parts combinable with the basic blaster pistol to form a blaster rifle. The deluxe version also has the additional poncho, bandolier with 5 cartridges, a breathing mask, and aviator hat with goggles.


Instruction sheet shows you how to equip Jyn Erso in her various outfits and equipment


Here's Hot Toys 1/6th scale Jyn Erso wearing the kyber crystal pendant necklace given by her mother Lyra before she is killed by Orson Krennic's Deathtroopers. Nice touch by Hot Toys since the necklace will be completely hidden once she dons her outfit but it's still nice to know it's included.


The picture below shows Hot Toys 1/6th scale Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso wearing gray colored top, brown vest with pockets, olive-green jacket, dark green scarf, holster with belt and straps, light-black pants, and brown boots. She's armed with a E-11 blaster rifle and truncheon / baton in extended mode.


Jyn Erso's time with Saw Gerrera's rebels taught her a range of survival skills. She became a tough hand-to-hand combatant, excelling with improvised weapons and favoring sturdy truncheons - effective even against stormtroopers. The Truncheon / Baton can be displayed in closed or extended mode.


Check out the close-up pics of Hot Toys 1/6th scale Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso head sculpt. Once again, Hot Toys doesn't disappoint. Jyn carries a battered but functional Crozo 2-MAL personal comlink - a cheap, simple and effective communications device commonly used by the rebels.


Stripped of weaponry when imprisoned, resourceful Jyn wastes no time in lifting an unattended BlasTech A-180 to equip herself for the mission that lies ahead.


Jyn Erso also arms herself with a Imperial E-11 blaster rifle taken from one of the Stormtroopers.


NEXT: Jyn Erson with poncho, bandolier with 5 cartridges, a breathing mask, and aviator hat with goggles - all that the Deluxe version includes.

I’ve had this figure for a few months now and absolutely love it. My only reason problems with it are that her baton doesn’t stay on the hook very well.
