This figure is the basic 5-joint body, but has swivel wrists as well as enhanced textures from the last movie. That's it, really. The helmet lacks some of the stripes of The Black Series version and is a darker black, the blaster is nice and fits in the holster, and there's a sound chip. Oh - and all the folds on the suit seem to be the same as The Force Awakens, too. The figure is pretty redundant, which is my big complaint about The Last Jedi as a whole. I understand you need to make a new Poe figure, but the best one is a pack-in with the Ski Speeder. This one is just like 4 other orange pilot suit versions on the market, and aside from the Force Link it's really not any better or different. It's the first individually carded pilot Poe with a removable helmet, but I don't necessarily see that as a virtue since very similar figures are packed in with the 2015 Poe's X-Wing and 2017 Poe's Boosted X-Wing. There's no scruff on the face, but the eyes are painted nicely. His likeness is OK, the skin is a little pale but mercifully not translucent. The buttons on his chest are pretty clean, however the various buckles on the straps of his flight suit are unpainted.
Force Link Notes: "I'm Poe, Poe Dameron." "I can fly anything." "Let's light it up." "We're gonna do this." "Take my lead." It's clearly a soundalike. Also a smattering of blaster sounds.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
