While Kanan is scaled to fit in with your 6-inch The Black Series figures - and a "realistic" Kanan will be warming shelves and clogging stores in a few months - the articulation is completely different. Kanan's neck, shoulders, and waist rotate... and that's it. This figure looks good and is the perfect size for a desk or a shelf, but as a toy there's not much to it. It's even simpler than the current range of Galactic Heroes, so this is a figure you'll probably buy for his own aesthetics or just to steal his blaster for your other similarly sized action figures.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Family Dollar. Wave 1 was international only so far (Australia, Mexico) and Wave 2 is in the USA so far. Wave 1 came in window boxes like the 12-inch figures, Wave 2 came in open "tray" boxes. They're basically scale with 6-inch The Black Series. I should note that Kanan, Vader, and Luke have all-English packaging - no French, no Spanish, and that's downright unusual these days.
