When I first saw Rose, I thought "Wow, her uniform is super duper blue." Then I saw the movie - it was also super duper blue. She has 5 joints and her "skirt" is stiff enough to restrict hip joints from swinging forward. The hat is cool, I like the First Order symbol on it. The face looks determined, and her hair matches the other costumes pretty nicely. The boots and gloves are glossy, and there's a cut in her skirt on the back side - this might actually help with movement if her legs swing backward. They don't. She stands well and looks decent - Hasbro could probably make an army builder out of the body if they had more heads to use.
A bonus accessory is a big blaster cannon. It's not bad, but it's not useful - she really can't hunker down over it and grab on due to the limited articulation. If you have super-articulated Stormtroopers, they may get more out of this accessory. You may disagree but I don't find it to be useful. It's neat as a decoration, but after thousands of figures I don't need decoration - an accessory that serves no real use is just a waste of plastic and resources. Hasbro could've made a few more pennies on this figure and left it out, or perhaps gave us something a bit more useful.
Due to what you get in the set, I would argue you get your money's worth. You get a normal 3 3/4-inch scale human plus two small droids for $15. All three have sound chips, so it's a decent suite of stuff for the price. You may not necessarily want another BB-8, but that seems to be a recurring theme in the line - to get some really cool stuff, you're going to make a purchase or two that feels a little punitive.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
