Female Rebel Pilot Ibtisam was released in March 2009 as part of a Walmart exclusive comic 2-pack. The figure is based on the appearance in the Star Wars comic book series X-Wing Rogue Squadron, issue #19.
Ibtisam is super articulated with 14 joints, including a ball-jointed waist. The helmet fits perfectly onto Ibtisam's head, and her blaster is a perfect match for the holster, which is located on the right side of her belt. The pilot's chestbox seems to be permanently attached to the body, even though it kind of looks like it's removable. There is a small cable coming out of the bottom of the chestbox, which can be plugged into the pilot's suit, or just left hanging.
The paint job is very nicely done, especially around the eyes. The figure has the basic holes in the feet so you can place it on a stand, but in this case it won't be necessary because the figure stands very safely on its own. Overall, this is a great action figure, and a very welcome addition to the Rogue Squadron action figures!
Ibtisam and Nrin Vakil seem destined to be enemies: Ibtisam is a Mon Calamari, and Vakil is a Quarren, two species that have been foes for centuries. Yet an unlikely friendship evolves on a mission to Malrev. Ibitsam finds herself becoming attached to the stoic Nrin Vakil, while Nrin's initial animosity turns to respect for the courageous Mon Calamari, proving that the bonds of friendship can rise above the blind hostility of the past.
