Jaster Mereel was released in an online exclusive comic 2-pack together with Montross. The set was originally to be released during The Legacy Collection, but wasn't released until The Legacy Collection had already ended in late 2010. However, the packaging was still kept in the red Legacy-style, and even said Legacy Collection on the packaging. The figure is based on Jaster Mereel's appearance in the Dark Horse comic book series "Jango Fett: Open Seasons".
Just like Montross, Jaster Mereel has 14 points of articulation, including ball-joints in the neck, shoulders, elbows, knees and ankles. Both wrists, the waist and both legs were given swivel joints. The legs stance is in a neutral pose, and the figure balances out quite well by itself. Hasbro included 2 blasters, a blaster rifle, a jet-pack, a helmet and a soft-goods cape with the figure. The somewhat small blasters fit OK into both hands, but sit a little loosely. They do fit very well into both holsters though. Unfortunately, the blaster rifle doesn't fit well at all into either hand. The cape, the helmet and the jet-pack all fit well. The red cape has a hole in it, so that the jet-pack can either be attached on the figure without or with the cape on.
The paint application on Jaster Mereel is executed well. The only flaws are on both shoulders, which have unpainted, gray joints showing through, instead of being painted red. This really looks off. But, there is little, or actually nothing to complain about the sculpt. The figure has 14 well hidden joints with a fantastic head sculpt, which makes for an overall cool looking figure. We also liked the blaster rifle sculpt a lot, which even has a small Mandalorian symbol on the grip and a "tangled" rifle strap. Overall, Jaster Mereel turned out quite well (except for the shoulder paint issue), and can easily be recommended!
Mandalorian leader Jaster Mereel and his second-in-command Montross play pivotal roles in the dark past of Jango Fett. Mereel and Montross change the life of the future bounty hunter during the Mandalorian Civil War in the decades before the Clone Wars.
