So for this review, we are going to check out the Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Bo Katan Premier Collection Statue from Gentle Giant Ltd.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Bo-Katan Premier Collection Statue – The Review
When doing my reviews I look at many things. Those things are packaging, sculpt and paint quality, and displayability. I also always like to get the negatives out of the way first so we can always finish up on the good stuff. So without any more waiting here are my cons and pros of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Bo-Katan Premier Collection Statue.
Cons Of The Clone Wars – Bo-Katan Premier Collection Statue
First, we will dive into some of the possible issues collectors may have with this statue. Now once again Gentle Giant Ltd. made this hard but there are a couple of small things that some may frown upon.
- While the details on this statue look great, Bo-Katan has a more life-like look and not that of The Clone Wars animated series.
- There are a few interchangeable parts for this statue that will give you many looks. The bad part about this is that you only get one pose with the right arm, unlike the left which can be switched out.
- The flams on the base could go up a little higher to meet with Bo Katan’s jet pack
- Bo-Katan is anchored to the base with just one peg in her left foot. I say this because you will want to be careful setting it up and displaying it because if that post breaks there is nothing else supporting the statue.
Pros Of The Clone Wars – Bo-Katan Premier Collection Statue
Now that we got those cons out of the way it is time to take a look at all of the amazing things about the Bo-Katan Premier Collection Statue.
- If you are someone that wants to leave it in the box you are in luck. Like most of Gentle Giant’s statues, the box art looks great and the back of the box also gives you a summary of the statue.
- This Premier Collection Statue is packaged very well as it is encased in a styrofoam block. It also has plastic around the statue, base, and parts to protect the paint job.
- The Bo-Katan Premier Collection Statue comes with interchangeable heads, arms, and accessories so you can change the look of your statue.
- Each interchangeable piece secures in a socket with a magnet giving each piece a snug fit.
- The sculpt of the statue and the base look amazing. You can tell a lot of work went into this piece.
- The paint job does a great job of giving this statue a real-life feel. From the fire on the base to the distressed look of the armor, the paint job does an amazing job of bringing out every little detail of this piece.
- This statue can be displayed at a few different angles giving you more options on how you want to display it in your collection.
- The Base is wide and heavy making the statue easy to display without the fear of it tipping over easily.
- Each statue comes with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity
My Final Thoughts
If you are a fan of Bo-Katan this Premier Collection Statue is a must-have for your collection. For those that want the full animated look, this statue might not be for you, but if you are looking for a high quality very detailed Bo-Katan statue you will not be disappointed. Of course one of the best things about this piece is the interchangeable parts. From helmet to no helmet or if you want her holding a blaster or not it is up to you. The paint job is also top-notch and brings this piece to life in your collection. If you are looking for a Bo-Katan piece to be the centerpiece of your collection head over to gentlegiantltd.com or check with your local comic or toy shop you won’t be disappointed.
