The highest compliment I can give this figure is he looks like someone Tig Fromm might hire. You could throw this guy in your Mini-Rigs or have him hunt down Thall Joben, and he fits right in with that late-Kenner world (other than the vinyl cape.) It is my sincere hope you bought a case of these, because getting Mando, Cara Dune, and The Child will likely be a retail bloodbath. This is a format I hope Hasbro embraces because most faults are forgiven - you can even name a figure incorrectly, give him the wrong blaster, and make the size wildly wrong and people will say "heh, that's Kenner for you!" I still think it's too good, with too much paint, but for all we know the hypothetical Kenner of 1987 might have given more paint apps to these guys. (Maybe. But the faces of Floyd Malloy and Lava Clan Fire Warrior Karn might argue the opposite.) It would be a dream if Hasbro pumps out more of these and markets them to kids too - I think everybody would be a winner here.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
