I think it's an interesting idea for an exclusive.  The ROTJ 40th Anniversary is topical.  And that REVENGE poster was something that I remember pretty well from back then.

The figure itself is... the figure.  I think this is far more about the presentation than the action figure.  It will look nice on a shelf.

Reminds me of the Lava Reflection Vader that Target had for RotS.
