Her small blaster is perfect, and the bigger gun is better than the "Combine" weapons last year. It's basically a big bazooka which she can hold in her hand and fits well over her shoulder. If you pose her right, she can even hold it and remain standing - that's no small feat! Especially for such small feet. I like it in the sense that it works well, and she can hold it while standing. I'd also be very happy if they removed it to get the cost down to $5.99, but of course I would. That's what matters to me.
The 6-inch figure had some coloring issues in the skin as well, so this one isn't worse. If you get in real close you'll see where things aren't painted quite right, but most of it is done quite well and Hasbro is painting more things than we usually see on a costume at this size. With The Force Awakens I felt a bit more compelled to say "This is great, buy it" but in this case we already know at least two more opportunities to get a Jyn this size are coming - maybe more - so I'd say you could probably wait. I doubt we'll see this specific outfit again at this size, at least in the near future, so get her if you like the costume. I'm not sure I love it - I like it - but the next version of Jyn Erso is sort of the action figure of your dreams. Assuming you dream of 1980, and I do. I'd say if you see this version of Jyn Erso this week, and you've got a few bucks, snag one. I don't think I like it as much as the debut Rey last year, but it's not like I think I even saw this outfit prior to the toy anyway.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
