To see Hasbro make a toy at a price that seems absurdly low given the rest of their catalog is always a joy, but she does fall short in terms of functionality. She can stand with no problems - mostly. If you swing an arm forward to aim her gun, she's fine, but if both arms swing forward my sample tips forward and face-plants. A few extra minutes in the oven could probably fix the soles of her boots to not do this, but again, it's $5. This is a low-cost toy for people who will never pay $20 or $25 for an action figure, which is probably another reason why action figure collecting has resulted in fancier, higher-priced items at the expense of active kid impulse-buys. She's good enough, but not great. The helmet paint is good, the sculpt is impressive, and this might be phenomenally good custom fodder for people looking to electroplate a figure, or do a Sofubi-style custom, or to throw it at a kid to keep them away from the good stuff.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Five Below. This figure comes in a new assortment (F5823 started with plastic-free packaging in 2022, B3946 was the previous assortment form 2015-2022, which sometimes had an open window and sometimes had a plastic sheet.)
