To see how the specific elements of the original figure looked, The Mandalorian [FOTD #2,637] is where you'll want to look. Articulation is still excellent, but the colors changed quite a bit. While the salvaged Scarif Trooper-esque shoulder and hand armor seems the same, everything else takes on a dreamy root beer quality that looks even better in person. The grey body suit is now a rich metallic brown. The shoes still look undecorated and uninspired - but they're there! Armor that was previously a dull prison grey now dazzles as a metallic blue, and the metallic armor paint looks even better with the silver battle damage against it. While it's not as authentic, it certainly feels like a massive improvement over the standard release. If you're the kind of person that just collects weird variants, this may be a good sub-line for you.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Target. It came out on Triple Force Friday (October 4, 2020) but I didn't ever see them until January 8, 2020.
