Commentary: It's different! This color-change C1 Astromech is Disney's superior C1-10P "Chopper" [FOTD #2,385] with deco changes and lacking the alternate "wrong" leg. The deco is closer to the Hasbro Chopper figure, plus an added color-change figure. You'll like this one.
The figure has a removable central leg, head-arms with 3 joints each, plus each leg has an articulated ankle. What's more, the arm in the body also swings out - there's a lot going on with this mold. Disney dropped some deco on the back of the figure, but that isn't something you're likely to miss. You're unlikely to miss Chopper's crotch rocket either.
When chilled, the feet and dome turn black. It recalls the Imperial "disguise" Chopper got on the TV show, but it's not the same pattern or the same colors. It may serve as "close enough" for young fans, and it's certainly better than nothing. If you like what you see, I'd say grab it. It's a neat set and a nice feature, and who the heck knows when you can go to a theme park again to buy yourself one.
