The costume looks like what you saw on TV over ten years ago. She lost the tube top for a sleeveless number with gloves, arm bands, boots, and ventilated pants - which I guess may not seem Star Wars-y, but having left my house and seen airports I can assure you that the young people still do wear pants with rips in them. Functionally, it's probably pretty similar. How it works out for sword fighting, I have no idea. I sit at a computer for a living. Much like The Vintage Collection figure, she has two lightsabers. You can plug them into her belt if you like! Her belt fits well, the sculpting all turned out well and it seems multiple molded color pieces were stitched together to keep her looking her best for the longest possible time. You want things molded in color - paint scrapes. If the head is white plastic and pink plastic, at least those parts will stay nice if it falls and dings on the ground.
As I keep writing, I'm cutting my pre-orders for the 6-inch line and probably won't be buying a heck of a lot more - but I like this one a lot. I don't know if I'll keep her (and indeed them) forever, but she'll be one of the last to go. It's a pity the Anakin and Obi-Wan were really hard to get, because it would be great to have them to go with her - but maybe there's still room for Season 3 redesigns as figures, to keep things going. Hasbro did a nice job here, and if you are a fan of Ms. Tano I highly recommend getting this figure and watching The Clone Wars. (The Ahsoka show, well, if you have some time on a plane, sure.)
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
