Snap's got no problems standing, but sitting provides a challenge - he's a thicker man, so the design needs to account for the hip joints swinging forward. As he is, the legs are stopped by his crotch region pretty quickly. He won't be able to sit in an X-Wing, even if he could fit in it - and you'll recall Hasbro's X-Wings for The Force Awakens were a tight squeeze for even smaller figures than this one. The sculpting seems on par with the rest of the line, featuring generous detail work translating a cloth flight suit to plastic. The vest has lots of detail too, and a swell Resistance logo on the flight vest. The cable connects the chest box to his pocket, plus he's even got a working holster for his blaster. I love the deco on the helmet, but the flesh is pale and the beard is weird. This is an ideal figure for buying, putting on the shelf, and then never touching again.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth a million years ago.
