Greetings Padawans! Today I have a very cool review of the semi-recent Star Wars Forces Of Destiny Dolls. These dolls/action figures are based on a short animated series which is in itself based on the Star Wars Movies and TV shows.

You can find the animated Star Wars Forces of Destiny on youtube or at http://partners.disney.com/star-wars-forces-of-destiny.
Anyway, onto the review! When I first saw these action figures, I thought they were cool, but I had no idea how much I’d love them. (I’m also a huge Star Wars fan, so…) It is a line geared mainly towards girls.
I bought Princess Leia and Rey, and my sister bought Jyn Erso. I adored these dolls so much I bought a Kylo Ren and Rey 2 Pack with the B-day money that my Grandparents gave me, and it’s coming soon. These dolls stand 11 inches tall.
All the figures have rooted hair, that is done up in very stiff styles. I would not recommend taking the styles out, since it seems they would be very hard to replicate again.
All of their shoes come off.
Their hands are removable which makes it easier, in Rey’s case, to slip off her arm wraps. It is also fun if you want to swap their hands.
Most of their clothes are molded, but they have a few removable items. The above pictures show them with all of their accessories removed except their shoes. They can bend at the knee, elbow, wrist, and their heads are also articulate.
Rey comes with two weapons: a trans-blue lightsaber made out of plastic and…..
…a gun that can slip into the holster on her belt.
All of these dolls have action features (Thus why they are called action figures…). The action feature is activated when you squeeze the doll’s legs together.
Rey turns to her left and swings her lightsaber down with her right arm. Rey’s action feature it slightly harder to use than the others when the bottom of her top is on.
Rey comes with an all plastic BB-8 whose head spins all the way around.
The Princess Leia Organa & R2-D2 Action Figure Set has the same pricing as the Rey one.
For her weapon, she has a gun.
When you press her legs together, her left arm swings up, and her waist turns to the right to point her gun.
She comes with an all plastic R2-D2, that turns all the way around at the head. The legs can also turn 360 degrees.
The Jyn Erso Action Figure retails for $21.95 on https://www.shopdisney.com/. She’s cheaper than the other two because she didn’t come with a droid.
Her weapons include this stick thing ^ XD (I have no idea what it is called) and…
… a gun which can fit into the holster on her belt.
When you press her legs together, her left arm swings down, and her waist turns to the right as she flips her “stick thing”.
Overall, I’d give these Action Dolls a good 9 out of 10 stars. Their downfalls are the cheap, thin material for their fabric clothing, and that whichever of their arms is linked to the action feature, is not as easy pose as the other. If you are a fan of Star Wars, I strongly recommend these figures. If you enjoyed this review, be sure to like this post! Also, tell me in the comments below: Do you like Star Wars?
