His blaster is grimy and looks like someone rubbed dirty, disgusting week-old street snow all over it. It's big and looks significantly cooler than the regular release, so if you've got the money this one may be worthwhile just for the unique deco. The armor is no slouch either, although "armor" is a term I'd use loosely. Basically they gave Finn a Han Solo-style blue snow jacket hood with face mask, and slapped it on white/blue/orange body armor that looks like it might fit in pretty much any modern Hasbro toy line. It clamps over the figure quite nicely, mixing harder and softer plastics to fit over his head as his eyes can see right through the visor. It's actually nicely engineered. I assume it won't be in the movie, but it does resemble some of the recent Nerf N-Strike Elite toys and I get a big kick out of that. If not in style, the colors definitely match Nerf's top-selling foam dart blaster line and that alone makes this an amusing purchase as a toy fan. It works. I won't say it's great or worth the $13, but it's certainly different enough to be notable. I hope the price comes down, but given how well this and other figures are selling that's unlikely.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
