PROS: Despite using existing tooling from previous Black Series releases, the Battlefront II Inferno Squad Agent still impresses as a figure. The bold red accents and sigils are striking as they almost have a Special Forces First Order TIE Pilot feel. The sculpting still holds up well today and the repurposed Han Solo stormtrooper belt from 2013 makes this figure stand apart from prior TIE Pilot releases.
CONS: Sadly, this figure doesn’t represent the main protagonist of the Battlefront II story, Iden Versio, though I understand the need to recoup tooling costs and still make something in the spirit of the game. There were several issues in the order fulfillment for this figure from delays and dropped orders. GameStop must work on their exclusives relationship with Hasbro if they want to be a successful player in the game. (Pun intended).

If there is any more mysterious than Snoke’s background it’s his continued delay by GameStop. The website now listed this with a release date of 10/20/2017. At this point, GameStop should really just state “Coming Soon” and be done with it.
