Great looking figure!  It doesn't really fit my collecting style, but it does look nice.

A kick ass multi-piece removable helmet...

A working holster that is complete...

Removable gear/vest...

Super quality 12" figure articulation...

Cool likeness of the old "vet" from the opening sequence...

Accurate uniform in every detail, sculpt, color, etc...

Accurate sized blaster...


Dare I say, a Fleet Trooper who doesn't suck?  I think I may try to pick him up. :)

Awesome... not sure if I have room for this, but I might try and make room.

I like that they made the grey haired guy.  I think I will order this one.  It looks great there in the picture.

The Domestic Exclusive Edition of the Rebel Fleet Trooper is now up for preorder.  Priced at $69.99, shipping 4th Quarter of 2008.  Personally, I'm passing on this one and trying to just stick to the main characters, but it looks pretty nice.

Nice figure at a good price.

I'm hoping I can pick this one up at a discount on eBay, or something...

I just canceled my preorder for this one. Was never really too excited about it.

I ended up cancelling it because Luke ANH became available again.  I really kicked myself in the butt for cancelling Luke.  I really like the RF trooper but with Vader, Stormtrooper, and Han Carbonite on order it got the boot.  It will probably be cheaper down the road in a few years anyway.

He is, truly, the only non-sucking Fleet Trooper right now...

Well, LEGO's is nice too.

Otherwise, they suck.
