Like the six inch Black Series R2-D2, I was reticent to get a Tyrion figure because it's not as good a value. But Tyrion is one of my favorite characters, and since all the figures were below retail, it helped soften the blow. Tyrion is in his armor from the battle of Blackwater Bay, and his sole accessory is a battle axe. I would have preferred a more casual outfit (and maybe a goblet of wine), but who knows if they'll do another Tyrion figure. The likeness to Peter Dinklage is unfortunately not very good on the figure. Despite his shorter stature, the articulation is still pretty decent. No double hinged knees, and the ankles are a bit stiff, but otherwise everything important is there. The lower skirt of the armor is fairly soft, so it's not too obtrusive.
