I just picked up the newest version of the Visual Dictionary, because I was lured in with "More Original Trilogy Content".... one of the 3 new OT pages shows the White Endor Soldier and profiles him a bit. They List him as Colonel (Later General) Airen Cracken. Interesting that he has a back story etc. He also has a life in EU in some books.
Now that I have a few of each of these Endor Soldiers, let me give my mini-review.
Decent Head Sculpts (I like the ball socket head for head swaps)
Great Weapon Choice (it beats the Rifles made of gummy bear plastic)
The holsters on all 8 of mine do not hold the pistol without a little help.
The Legs are a great improvement and very accurate to uniforms I have been able to get a close look at, with the Gaitors and all.
THE ARMS SUCK THE SUCK OF 1000 SUCKS. Why they even bothered to articulate the shoulders with that vest/jacket really boggles my mind. This figure is still on my "Needs to be redone list" because of the arms. I know, I am bitching about plastic toys, but hey every PT one film cell Jedi andClone gets super-articulation why not some of the same thing for OT army builders. Also as an OT only collector, these are the last figures for me till Wave 2 of next years line up/releases (or as I call it the 2nd Anniverary of ROTS).
In the great pecking order of suckness He barely Edges out the Rebel Fleet Trooper, and at least doesn't suck as bad as the Hoth Hobbit from Saga the 1st.
