The figure is pretty good - there's not a lot of stunning texture here, but it's a space monkey with four arms and the kind of blue space suit you thought you might get as a toy from Rogue One, but Hasbro let you down. I like the orange bandolier and the retro computer stuff, and the weathering on the belt is no slouch either. Hasbro tried a lot of stuff here, and overall they did a good job with a weird design. I'd like to see what they can do when they figure out a more clever way to cram in those shoulder joints, though. Recommended if you can find it - especially at (or slightly above) retail price. Yes, it's that interesting. It's not necessarily fun, but I wouldn't give mine up.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
