Compare this General Weir figure
This General Weir figure was released in March of 2010 - in The Legacy Collection's Walmart exclusive comic 2-pack. The set included this figure - and a Storm Commando trooper. General Weir was featured in the comic book series "X-Wing: Rogue Leader".
The figure is super articulated with 14 joints - with all of them being ball-jointed except for the 2 swivel joints in the legs. There are no balancing issues - but there are the typical peg holes in both feet - so you could place him on a stand if you'd like. The blasters are a great fit for General Weir's right hand - but they don't fit into his left hand and keep falling out. However - there is a holster located on the right boot - and you can store one of the blasters in there. The red harness - which General Weir has hanging around his chest is removable by pulling it over his head. The biker scout helmet is also removable and covers the entire head - front and back nicely.
General Weir's paint application is cleanly applied - with a glossy black armor and some red on the harness - and some red accents on the belt buckle and the helmet's eye area. The face sculpt is well done - and looks pretty close to what was seen in the comic books. All things considered - this General Weir figure is OK. It's hard to judge - because it just feels a little plain and simple with only 2 colors on the figure (if you ignore the head). However - it's a super articulated figure - which looks very close to the counterpart in the source material - and chances are if you are fan of the comics - you'll appreciate this release.
General Weir launches a counter-rebellion after the Battle of Endor to undermine the Rebel Alliance. The Imperial general discovers that Luke Skywalker is in the city of Coronet and - with his stormtroopers and storm commandos - goes after the Rebel hero.
