This Ahsoka Tano build on the 2016 model, which was also reissued in 2020 with new deco. The head is aged down to look like her younger appearance, with the shoulders, torso, and skirt being revised while the forearms and legs seem more or less the same. I can get her to stand, but the ankles aren't great and getting her to balance in an action pose is tough without assistance. This figure makes a compelling case for doll stands.
I really like how her skirt piece was redesigned to incorporate two small holes to plug in the lightsaber hilts. They have removable blue blades - true to the series finale! - and she can carry them around if she likes. I struggle to imagine much room for improvement here, as accessory interaction has been one of the rougher spots for Hasbro's Star Wars figures. I'm glad this one works well. The lightsaber blades are also a vibrant blue color.
I like this Ahsoka figure a bunch - it's a bit more dynamic than the Rebels costume, even if it isn't quite as accurate thanks to the reused elements. I assume this is the best Ahsoka we'll get... until Hasbro makes earlier appearances in this line to appeal the growing fan base for this character. Regardless, get this one if you have a chance, it's excellent. But if you want perfection, the 3 3/4-inch The Vintage Colletion release appears to be a completely new sculpt and as such does not have recycled legs - and may be more to your liking.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Walmart.com.
