PROS: First off, this isn’t your typical “5POA” figure as this version of Jyn has two additional points of articulation – swivel forearms -bringing the POA count up to 7 making for a slightly better figure. Sure, it’s not an elbow or knee joint, but it does allow for more variety in posing. Her overall aesthetic is good, with a lot of sculpting details in her outfit that is reminiscent of Princess Leia in Endor gear. Hasbro also sculpted a full outfit underneath the vinyl “poncho” – which is not really intended to be removable, but bonus points for their forward thinking. She includes a blaster pistol that can be stowed in her holster and a large rocket/projectile launcher for added play value.
CONS: The breathing mask/apparatus takes a bit of futzing to get situated on her face properly. Due to her small frame and higher center of gravity, it does take a bit of trial and error to get her to stand unassisted. It’s not impossible by any means but it could be a point of contention for kids with little patience or the heavy handed.
