    If you don't own ROTF Fallen, then get HftD (unless you are willing to wait for a movie-accurate repaint). Ball-jointed head w/ removeable face and a staff easily make him better than the original.

    YES. The only thing the ROTF version has over the HFTD one is a better paint job. The new one has:
    • A weapon
    • Give me your face action
    • Neck articulation
    Great retool for an already excellent figure.

    I think it looks much better. I didn't like the original at all, but I'm considering getting this version.

    I'll wait for the movie accurate Repaint (inevitable) if I were you. All those blue just doesn't work for me. :D

    I already took the greenish one off of my RotF shelf so I can put the blue one there in his place. I like the new features and the colors don't bother me that much.

    Hopefully this new one will get a better paintjob in the future. Even if it's not accurate, if it at least looks nicer than the questionable blueberry paintjob here (seriously, I wonder about some of the weird color schemes lately, considering this and the Target 2-packs) I'll buy it. At any rate, the new mold beats the shit out of the old one.

    Yes, it's better. And since you said you like the new color you should definitely get it if you're on the fence, as the color is the only questionably poor aspect in my opinion.

    It's better, but it's still not good... By all means, if you collect the movie figures (or even, like I do, collect the characters, and you don't need every single figure), you should have The Fallen (and I can't get up), and Mr Blue is, imho, the least sucky one so far.
    But, just like the other incarnations of this mold, do not get this figure for it's own sake, it's pretty bad.
