Echo Base Reviews - CW37 Cato Parasiti

Unless you buy every bounty hunter that comes out, you probably missed this figure. Is Cato Parasiti worth going back for?

CW37: Cato Parasiti
mask, rifle
Articulation: ball joint head, shoulders, elbows, knees, ankles; swivel waist, wrists and hips

Cato gets the prize for break out figure of the year. Seriously. Hidden articulation, awesome sculpting and great paint. She has full articulation, base line, but still super articulated. The articulation is well hidden, especially on a female figure. She and Ahsoka set the standard for what female figures need to start looking like and how their articulation should start to be made and constructed.

The paint marks have blast marks, dirt marks and the paint on her head actually looks somewhat reptilian. Her eyes have great detail and her face has a ton of character. Her mask has transparent eyes so you can still see her face underneath all of that giant mask. The sculpting features ridging somewhat like Vader's arms and legs and Aayla's clothed arm. Her ankle armor actually hovers over her feet instead of being sculpted on, giving her full range of ankle articulation. If there was one thing I could fix? Her hands are a little small and her rifle a little awkward..but I digest. All in all, it combines into a great figure.
