The S.H. Figuarts Qui-Gon Jinn 1/12 scale action figure is now shipping, so I got my hands on one to show it off to prospective buyers. In short, it’s another finely detailed and crafted action figure from the Figuarts line, but it also suffers from scale issues like other Star Wars figures in the line. The Figuarts Jinn is noticeably shorter and less broad than the Black Series version, which retails for much less at a vale $19.99 asking price. Although, the Figuarts Qui-Gon has much better points of articulation, and the face is very lifelike looking.

You can check out the full review below via the embedded video. Qui-Gon is shown off plus the accessories that ship with him, which include four total sets of hands, his lightsaber, and an alternate face that reflects his death look after Maul impales him through the chest. There are also a few static shots to show off how this figure scales to the Black Series version of Jinn, as well as the Figuarts Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The Figuarts version of Qui-Gon Jinn looks amazing and can pose like a mad man, but in terms of scale -- like other Figuarts Star Wars figures -- is off. He's a bit too short to play with your Black Series collection if anything else.
