What really makes this figure nice is the bonus set of cloth parts. The figure has a surprisingly great white cloak with black lining - there are strings to secure it to the arms, and a nice hood. It may be the new very-best-cloth-parts Hasbro has ever added to an action figure. There's also a blanket wrapped around the backpack for reasons I don't entirely understand, but hey, it makes the figure look different. That matters when you're using and re-using the same mold for multiple exclusives, hoping completists will deem them worthy of a second, third, or further look.
Collector's Mystery Box: The figure showed up in October in a "Collector's Mystery Box" for $39.99. This included a Final Order knit beanie from Bioworld, a The First Order Dark Side 10-04 2019 pin with a Stormtrooper helmet showing no manufacturer markings, and a Marvel Star Wars Allegiance comic book. If you want all of this stuff, it's a pretty good value - I wish they did it with The Mandalorian too/instead. Given the "crate of loot" is less desirable these days it's kind of amazing that something like this got made.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Target. It went on clearance the day after Christmas.
