The new-for-2020 blue markings on the 2013 mold look fantastic, with even more weathering and scuffing than in the game - perhaps even too much. Hasbro could do another version of this figure closer to the game and because this one is a decent departure, I'd still be happy to see it in another flavor. He has no problem holding his blasters, the holster fits the smaller blaster just fine, and the figure has about 29 points of articulation including a nearly perfect set of neck joints. You can get a lot of poses out of this mold, which is good, because you probably already bought it a few times with more coming.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from GameStop's web site.
