The Ming-Na Wen likeness is great for all you The Single Guy fans out there, with hair that's pretty much a perfect match for her Star Wars appearances - you can see ornate braids. Rather than use separately molded "wig" parts, her hair is painted on perfectly - a tough thing to get right with a strand on her face. The color looks great too, with light brown highlights for good measure.
Sculpt and deco are good, but how can I not talk about articulation? All of the joints are fairly well hidden in the costume. The ab joint is in a natural break in the costume. All the ankles, elbows, shoulders, and wrists tuck in the costume nicely. Things swivel fairly freely without concern of any unsightly gaps - the engineers did a great job here. That's tough to do, and it's appreciated. Her helmet is also pretty nice, but seems a smidgen brighter and cleaner than on the show. I still like it, but version 2.0 could use some new paint.
I don't know if it's perfect, but it's close - the exaggerated orange rings on the gloves look superb, and maybe we could've used some more definition in the orange at hte bottom of her vest. For $23 it's a spectacularly good figure, and one I'd say is worth picking up unless Hasbro finds a way to make these more eerily realistic as time goes on. She's a fun character and a good figure - unless you hate this scale, it's a must-buy.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
