In terms of the costume, it's pretty good. You get a nice jacket, a nice pair of pants, and a decent shirt. He has no problem holding his gun, which is handy - even with the clip-on sniper's gear, he can still hold it in both hands. The figure's range of motion with 27 joints, although some are a little stiff. The bend-and-swivel wrists are somewhat blocked by the jacket, as is his neck. The way the jacket piping lines up is a little funky, but it basically works out pretty well. It feels like a dry run for a Bespin Han Solo figure, complete with working holster.
As part of a 3-pack which infuriatingly includes another identical Jyn Erso (also sold at SDCC, also individually) it's unfortunate that we were asked to pay a $20 tax just to get this Cassian Andor and another, more special Death Trooper. I do not anticipate more or better versions of this character as an action figure, so I'd say get one when the price is right and hope someone can improve the head for you. If it's you who improves it, even better.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Target.
