The detail here is good, but the movie costume has a lot more grit to it. I like the little silver "eyes" on the helmet, but it would have been nice to have a dirt wipe across the helmet too. The red body suit looks good, with five points of articulation making it a decent little figure with a good center of gravity. I don't have to fight him to keep standing, and the legs move easily even though he has a big rubbery vest on over his torso.
I like him. Along with two flavors of Enfys Nest, that's going to about do it for the Cloud Rider gang. There are lots of cool designs for possible future figures, but the variety since 2010 has been not what it once was. LEGO gets a lot of fine things, as the figure+playset+vehicle paradigm has shifted to the construction brand. I'd love to see some more pals for Weazel - or even a prequel version of the figure - but for now? This is it, and it's good. If Hasbro is trying to make sure we're left wanting more, the Solo line was certainly expansive enough that I can say I'm not yet ready to be done with it. Here's hoping we get more figures in the future.
Force Link 2.0 Notes: "You're not going to walk away from this." "I'm going to grind you to dust!" "Well well. Come to pay us a visit?" "Admit it. You've met your match!" "I'm going to blast you!" Blaster shots. I believe it might be a soundalike, but it's a fun voice and nicely distorted.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
