As of now, I'm ranking him as "just ok". he's unique, and neutral, and a working holster is fine and dandy.
The fact that he APPEARS to not be real poseable is annoying though. Hasbro had no real NEED to put in the tri-pod cannon, and personally I already have 4 of the things so I could've done without it all together.
I'd rather seen a cloth hood and skirt piece put on, and the articulation on this figure is kinda insulting for an "Army builder".
The main problem I see is, while they improved in sculpt they chose not to improve in articulation much at all, or so it appears. I'll buy some, and it's parts to make customs of GOOD poseable snowies, but it's nowhere near what Hasbro's ABLE to do.
Even if the arms were poseable to hold a blaster w/2 hands and neutrally at his side, it would've been a lot better.
Hasbro appears to not have chosen that route though, and on a figure that desparately needed some better poseability I believe.
So, in the end... Is it great? No. Is it bad? Nah, just not as good as it could be. Adds some diversity, but there's still great ammounts of room for improvement here, especially for an army builder.
