Bill Burr's head is seen here with a shaved head and a good amount of scruff Weirdly packaged wearing his helmet, the bright-eyed ex-Imperial sniper looks really good. I don't know why Hasbro decided to hide it - the newly-tooled helmet is no slouch either. At first glance this figure looked like a Rogue One-era redeco, but now. It's a Solo redeco, minus a lot of the "redeco" part.
I'm being a little unfair, but this is one of the few times Hasbro could've made a better figure by saving some money. The 2019 Han figure had a lot more accessories for less money, but also a lot of paint applications. This new figure uses that same body, changing up the battle damage a bit and changing the scuffing slightly. Most of it appears in similar positions - no big deal - with minor modifications. The one place it really fell short was the right bicep - you'll notice Mr. Mayfeld has a red armor piece with three yellow squares. The element on the TV show was devoid of such hues, and a plain grey arm would've been more accurate. (Weirdly, Mando does have a red sleeve.) Sticklers for on-screen accuracy should probably hope Hasbro does Mando in this costume and screws it up too - maybe a simple head or arm swap could result in better figures down the road.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
