Articulation is the new standard with bend-and-swivel wrists and ankles, a great mid-torso joint, a double-neck joint, and better-than-average elbow articulation. Hasbro really nailed bare arm joints in a much better looking way than before, which is great, because she has tattoos to show off now. I had zero problems posing the figure and getting her standing with a gun the very first time, which is unusual for a lot of these toys. The teal armor is gorgeous, and the shoulder pads don't get in the way of her arm movements.
With thigh cuts, knees that bend and swivel, and an amazingly good range of movement that helps the figure balance, this is one of my favorite figures now. You should get her. And I hope Hasbro builds out more figures from The Mandalorian in this scale, because collecting these as a line is way more rewarding than enjoying a tiny handful of releases. You may have missed this figure at retail - the Clone Troopers from the case are usually left behind briefly. I'd recommend ordering online if the price is right, because you'll be sorry if you miss this one.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
