Commentary: This is the least essential figure in the new movie's line. Jyn Erso returns - much like new versions of Kylo Ren and Rey during Rogue One - because the home video is out, kids are still seeing it, and fans may want the movie's lead character roughly 11 months after the film's release. These lines are planned 18 months before release sometimes, so that means Hasbro assumed the marketplace needed a new Jyn Erso figure - and as such, they gave you one very similar to the last version with minor batch changes and added Force Link elements. (There's a chip inside her, and a blue marker on the sole of her retooled boot.)
Force Link Notes: "Rebellions are built on hope." "Escort is headed your way." "Okay, on my lead." Blaster sounds. "We can stop them." Possibly more - it was a little unresponsive.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
