With swiveling gloves with horizontal ribbing and robes over his chest armor, it's definitely the earlier version of the Sith Lord. The arms swing forward and can double-grip his lightsaber, and the detailing is great. It's no longer special to be great, as Hasbro does a good job and you really can't make a fuss over "normal" being really impressive since it's normal now. The deco, though, is quite nice on the armor. Each individual light and detail seem to be crisper and cleaner than usual, with better paint masks and slightly more vibrant colors as appropriate. Rubbery robes over his shoulder armor give him a little more visual heft, with nice flowing robes and legs that swing forward acceptably. He's not going to go on any starfighter outings, but he'll look cool standing around.
Force Link 2.0 Notes: "Don't underestimate the Force." "Prepare your troops for a surface attack." "There will be no one to stop us this time." "It's useless to resist." Also lightsaber sounds and clashes. It's pretty close to the one that came with the Probe Droid last year.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
