PROS: The overall sculpt and size is good, making it manageable for most display applications and the pose is fitting for a bounty hunter in midst of battle. The carbon freezing chamber base gives it nice presentation while making it very stable for displaying. The best aspect of this piece is the addition of the light-up base – something that would have been great in the 2014 Darth Vader base. No assembly required.
CONS: Pricey for the size and its limited edition (750 piece) production run is driving up the secondary price on eBay with listings ranging from two to three times the retail price. Paint apps could be tighter, especially the silver weathering which borders on excessive.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and judge for yourself whether this piece is worth adding to your collection.

About a month ago, an unnamed mystery build-a-droid astromech surfaced online. Various theories exist as to the potential release of this figure, but with the recent ramp up of the Star Wars Day/May Fourth promotions, I theorize that this will be a Disneyland Park Commemorative Figure. A recent blog post states that special “commemorative merchandise” will be available that day, and based on the black/yellow/white colors of the logo, the corresponding colors of the droid and the precedent for Disney releasing Limited Edition astromechs, this seems to fit that theory quite well.
Today, Oscar Isaac, alongside BB-8, announced details for this week’s campaign sponsored by CrowdRise in support of Star Wars: Force for Change.
