Part of the wave of merchandise for “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” that hit stores a week ago was a selection of action figures. For “Star Wars” collectors who have 37 versions of Han Solo and 29 of Luke Skywalker, the new characters are a welcome addition.

This is the action figure for Constable Zuvio. He’s described on the back of the package as being “A vigilant law officer on a mostly lawless world. The tough and humorless Constable Zuvio keeps order in a frontier trading post.”

Along with Constable Zuvio, the toy comes with some extra pieces that can be combined with pieces included with the First Order Flametrooper and Finn action figures to make a vehicle.

It’s a good way to sell more toys. Not only will you have to buy three toys to make the vehicle but most will buy six toys so they can open three and keep the other three in their packaging.
