Commentary: You can skip Commander Bly and no one will fault you. A mix of new and old parts, this isn't a bad figure but while the other ones in this simplified style usually do a good job representing the character as best it can, this one doesn't. It's very similar to Captain Rex from last year in that it has blasters and holsters, but it has a unique pauldron and a new head with removable (yes!) binoculars. However (no!) the binoculars are not articulated - and it probably wouldn't have cost them a lot to make the pegs round, rather than square, to do this.
neglected to paint the stripe down the middle of the helmet that color. A variant of the 2005 Bly had that stripe, and Hasbro has repeatedly set "we'll get it right next time" since then. Every 3 3/4-inch Bly since then, they forgot to put it back. You might not care and if you don't care or notice that is totally fine - but it bugs me given how many times fans and Hasbro have talked on this issue in various panels and Q&A sessions. They didn't paint the mouth on the helmet, which is visible. They did paint the visor on the helmet, which is covered by the binoculars. Does this make sense to anyone?
Collector's Notes: I got this from Entertainment Earth. I have not seen this wave in stores yet.
