Deco is good - but it was already good. The face seems a little more alive, and to my regular eyes the face paint seems to be an improvement. I love the fingerless gloves, I love the bots, and the working holster? Dynamite. The decision to leave out the jacket - consistent with her Yavin appearance - helps make this figure a little different from the other release.
I like the regular version of Jyn Erso (Jedha) [FOTD #2,301], but this super-deluxe model looks more lively. And, of course, it's barely different in terms of the costume itself. The vest being sculpted separately and open gives her an illusion of motion, and the joints... well, you get more personality with a figure given good articulation. The basic version feels like a good action figure, and this one feels like a better action figure. Get both if you can swing it - but get this one if you can only afford one of them.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Walmart.
