I posted a review of the new Vintage Collection Rebel Fleet Trooper
to JediDefender.com's front page (my first front page review in ages).Clicky To Read The Review!
Basically it's just as I imagined... A couple things annoyed me, but nothing soured me on this figure. He is what I expected, and I was pretty satisfied.
The sculpt is really detailed, the likeness is a mystery (It's like the sharp Pello Scrambas features were sort of worn down, almost rounded off) but cool and neutral enough, the accessories are small yet they all appear to be new, the deco is on-par for what it should be (the blue is correct CHEWIE, fear not!), and the articulation is what it should be.
Other than the vest, and holster, I'm pretty much completely happy... other than the hat not arriving *ahem*, haha.
I can't tell if the hat is grey or tan by the early photos of the figure, but it's a cool accessory regardless.
I can't wait to buy, well, another 100 of these guys?
Maybe not that many... or maybe I will over time, I don't know. Depends on how long I'm still collecting. Either way I'm in on an army of these Fleet Troopers. I waited too long to not buy them now that they're here, regardless. Even if I quit tomorrow I'd still army build him.
I just hope he's really easy to pick up in quantity.
