Mercifully, it's a good figure. The eye paint is sharp, the hair sculpt is good, and the printing on her speed suit is fantastic. I'm not sure why they opted to mold her mustard-colored hood as a separate piece of painted plastic, but it's not much of an eyesore. Her cargo paints have painted bits, her various greeblies are decorated nicely, and the belt can hold her taser weapon. Mostly. It's not a perfect fit, but you can wedge the tab in there. They could've done a better job here. She has no problem holding her rifle or her taser in her hands, nor does she have problems standing or sitting. Other than the belt/tab compatibility issue, Hasbro did a solid job here.
Can you believe we live in an era where my complaint is that Hasbro made a perfectly good figure and made enough of it to go around in multiple channels and in multiple styles? I feel ridiculous. I enjoyed watching Finn and Rose be idiots and get thrown in prison for a parking ticket in Space Vegas. They're charming, underqualified special agents on an adventure that's beyond their pay grade that makes a bad situation worse - yet they're charming and I am glad they didn't die. I'd be curious to see her on a live-action TV show, and at least so far it looks like we aren't going to see seas of unsold Rose figures. If you don't have a Rose, this is a good one - the super-articulated one is better and has more painted details, but this one is cheap and very good. Get what makes sense for your budget and availability.
Force Link Notes: "Blast them!" "Bullseye!" "I can fix anything!" "We have a mission to complete." "You can’t give up on the Resistance."
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
