The figure uses the excellent Black Series B1 Battle Droid as a base. While it is essentially just a repaint, the new deco has been applied beautifully, with slight weathering and drybrushing around the figure.
The backpack is not presented well in the stock photos, but the antennae in the main pack still extend out like on the regular beige B1 droid, and the whole pack can be replaced by the commander's long antennae. However, my commander's antennae were slightly warped in the packaging.
The weapons include the standard E-5 blaster rifle for B1's, as well as a classic Original Trilogy long-barreled Stormtrooper rifle and the new First Order heavy blaster cannon.
The First Order cannon is rather unwieldy for the slim frame of the droid, but because it uses that blaster in-game, it makes sense as an inclusion. The droid can hold it up with tight arm joints, but the legs need balancing to pose without a stand due to the weight and volume of the big blaster.
Overall, a well-executed exclusive figure that displays and plays reasonably well, while modeling the in-game character class nicely.
