Hmmm, a mixed opinion here...
... Nice pose, and looks like he'll look ok standing around holding his rifle by the barrell with the stock on the ground, but... I'm a bit curious to see the articulation here. Considering what Hasbro's capable of, if that figure's arms aren't articulated anymore than at the shoulders I'll be a little disappointed by him. He's better than his previous figure, but I hope his arms aren't stuck like that is all. At least wrist articulation maybe...
... Why do I like Trandoshans? Because they gets alllllllll da ladies. Yes, that's right they do! And this figure looks ok. Again, some better articulation would be nice, and this figure doesn't appear to have a LOT different, though it looks like his arms are separated at the flight suit and maybe swivel around... I'll have my Bossk in a "Whipping the middle claw" pose immediately if that's the case. Also, given that Gold leader has the separate leg straps, why doesn't Bossk appear to have them? They look a lot better than molded to the leg I thought. Oh well.
... Is that Hitler? It was in Last Crusade, but he's pulling off a nice Hitler here too it seems.
My initial thoughts are that I like the fact I'm getting a GREAT customizing figure, I mean that's a good generic Imperial Officer sculpt with some seemingly nicely articulated arms. At least better than average, maybe not "Nice!" I guess. And I'm holding out hope his hat maybe comes off? It looks almost separate? Be nice to have that on an Impy for headswaps of figures.
The blaster's odd, I'd rather he had a Star Destroyer bridge console personally.... No leg articulation is just "Eh" to me too, though he didn't need
it... Still, it'd be neat to have it, ya know? The two things I really feel are bad on that (obvious) hand painted prototype is the color of the uniform, and the the lack of a pot-bellie. He's great custom fodder, but I believe Ozzel wasn't in the best of shape for his finely cut uniform, ya know what I am sayin'? One too many Heinekin's in the officer's lounge me thinks!
As for the Imp Officer color debate, I think this one will rage on like Hoth Han's coat.
To me, the Imperial Officers wear grey... Not as light grey as the Piett figure, and not that olive drab shade of Motti and Tarkin. To me, the Piett's closer to accurate than the other two. In the film, Tarkin's uniform (In the right light) looks as grey as Piett and gang in ESB... As does Motti and everyone else.
Everything I've ever read about how the uniform designs came about and such states that Imperials were to wear grey and black... Even Wulf Yularren's uniform was to be a very VERY light grey, not white (Like many assume). And no greens were ever used in producing the uniforms.
I think Tarkin, Motti, and now Ozzel (And any other officer in the similar uniform) should be made a single shade of grey, preferably that of Piett's uniform as it is in the films, and leave it at that... I think the whole "They're wearing green!" thing that many cry out is just a trick the cameras and lighting played though.
I've seen photos of Tarkin's real uniform from the movies, and it's definitely not green at all.
Also, production notes said the uniform was to be the same color as the uniforms of German field marshals... They wore grey, not green, so once again the "facts" as it were point toward Tarkin wearing grey but the figures coming out wrong.
Ozzel, I'm hoping, will be more properly greyed by the time his production pieces are shown somewhere. That's definitely a hand painted figure so hope still is there for a better color.
Edited to fix my lack of bolding the names. Otherwise that just looks like a mess of letters sorta.
