The "Combine!" accessory is actually pretty neat. It's like some sort of small hydrofoil/kickboard, covered in guns, with a tiny hole and a tiny peg to combine to make... I don't know what that thing is. It's ugly, whatever it is. Each individual piece of the "Snow" figure weapons turned out well, and this one also can be mounted on the head of a Disney Astromech droid. It just so happens the peg on the bottom of this weapon is the same size as the hat peg in an Astromech dome. If you want to make a tribute to R5-P8, this would be the way to do it. She has some difficulty holding it thanks to her arm pose and limited articulation - it was bound to come up eventually - but it's still pretty nifty. At least it's interesting and imaginative, even if it doesn't interact with Rey as much as I would prefer.
Get this one. That's really all there is to it. She can sit, she can fit in a Landspeeder, and she's a decent all-around stander, sitter, and vehicle pilot. She fit in pretty much every vehicle I tried, including the seats of the cockpit of the big Millennium Falcon. This means she's a winner, and so far this may be the best main character in the entire range.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
