The lovable goofball has 26 points of articulation - the same as Poe with added bend-and-swivel wrists, and he can get more out of them thanks to a lack of straps or other restrictions. He can stand - and has stood on my desk for months. He can sit, but it's awkward - the hips splay out so it's obvious Hasbro assumed (correctly) that most people buying this figure would either leave him in the package or just have him standing on a shelf, which is sadly the fate for many collected action figures these days. All of that articulation, largely wasted. At least he can double-grip a lightsaber, which no other Finn can do. The sculpt is basically the same as other Finns, which means he has a top-notch head sculpt and a decent all around costume. Lots of wrinkles, lots of folds, and a mid-torso ball joint for plus posings.
Deco has been improved! The blaster has black scoring and burn marks, plus some blue energy markings. It's a huge improvement. His shoes have some more dirt, as do his pants. Even the zipper gets a dot of silver, making this the best 3 3/4-inch Finn your toy display money can buy. The regular ones are perfectly nice and good for vehicles, but if you want a figure to stand around on a shelf this is probably your best bet. It's a shame they didn't toss him a lightsaber, but whatever. You've got lightsabers.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Walmart thanks to help from an awesome toy blogger.
