I bought one to check him out. I think the Disney Elite Series are really nice figures and I like that they are die cast. I really wanted to mix some of them in with my Black Series collection but I decided against it after opening one First Order Stormtrooper.
-Height/size: Why didn't they just scale these figures to 6 inches? The small height/scale difference was a deal breaker for me. My Stormtrooper shouldn't look bigger next to my Kylo Ren (Black Series).
-Pose-ability: The articulation is not as good as the Black Series. Figures don't stand up on their own very well (although it is nice they come with a stand). Especially on the Stormtroopers, the chest plate does not rotate at all. The entire body swivels. Really limits the cool poses you can do with the Stormtrooper's.
-Screws in back of figures: Not visually appealing. I gave this as my reason for returning the two First Order Stormtrooper's and Darth Maul.
With that said, these seem to be doing very well. When I made my return in the Disney Store two weeks ago they only had 3 Rey's. The employee that handled my return was hyped to see a Darth Maul and said that the Elite Series figures have been selling out as soon as they get them in.
The only reason I'm trying the Grievous is because he's like 7 feet tall in the movies any way so he may look to scale next to my Black Series. Also I think the die cast translates well with his character since he is a cyborg. And finally, his cape will hide the screws in the back. Still slightly worried about pose-ability but he looks dope.
