As pilots go, Hasbro mostly upped their game here. The grit on the vest looks wonderfully disgusting, and the suit feels like we're seeing some real wear and tear in spots. The fake cloth detail in the orange plastic is really amazingly done, and while there are some areas that look like they might be underdetailed - some spots on the left shoulder, some bits on the belt and straps - we haven't seen many final shots from all sides yet, so we don't know. As "Action Figure Guy" this is a pretty satisfying release - if I didn't know this was supposed to look like an actual guy, it'd just be a neato futuristic X-Wing pilot. As it is, it's just OK. I love the helmet and articulation. I don't love the likeness, or rather, how the likeness turned out in the materials used by the factory. Maybe it looked awesome as a 3D sculpt on a PC screen, but in my hand I'm just not feeling it.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
