Compare this Nicanas Tassu figure
Jedi Knight Nicanas Tassu was released in a Target exclusive 2-pack in 2010 together with a the dark lord of the Sith Count Dooku. The set was part of the Geonosis Arena Showdown series - which started in 2009 during The Legacy Collection - and by Fall of 2010 consisted of twelve 2-packs totaling 24 figures. The figure is based on Nicanas Tassu appearance in the Geonosian arena - where he could be seen throwing a lightsaber to Anakin Skywalker.
Nicanas Tassu has 14 points of articulation - including ball-joints in the neck - shoulders - elbows - the waist - knees and ankles. The wrists and both legs were given swivel joints. Nicanas Tassu balances out very nicely - and he can hold the lightsaber (with non-removable blade) tightly in both hands. The jedi robe is a little too long and feels a bit bulky. Like most other Jedi Knights - this figure has also a hole in the belt area where a hilt can be hung from - but unfortunately - there wasn't a lightsaber hilt included with the figure.
Nicanas Tassu has a basic paint application - but looks overall pretty good. Unfortunately - there is no "Geonosian dirt" to be found on the boots - but the paint job in the facial area is done very well. The super articulated sculpt - which even includes a ball-jointed waist - looks great - and should please any collector who was looking forward to adding this never-before-done character/figure to the collection.
The Jedi Knights rush to Geonosis to rescue Obi-Wan - Anakin and Padme from execution. The Jedi brandish their lightsabers against the Geonosian warriors and the massive army of battle droids - super battle droids and droidekas. All hope seems lost that any Jedi will survive this battle - then Yoda arrives with an army of clone troopers. Although many Jedi are lost that day - others survive this climatic battle that ushers in the Clone Wars.
