Awesome figure. And I have enough UPC's left over that I may send away for 3-4. Love the idea of a "generic" Mandalorian army.

Looks really neat to me...  I know some were disappointed with this, but to me it's even cooler than last years.  Maybe I'm just happy it's something "realistic" styled and somewhat new?  Either way, I like it.

Unlike the Rocket Firing Fett which I only got two of to keep MOC, this one I'll order a bunch of - both because I like it and because, like Diddly said, a nice generic Mando trooper.

I will get 1 but I am still not that excited - but then again I wasn't excited for the Fett last year either.

Love it. I'll get one to keep carded and then another 2-3 to be generic bodyguards or something

I will get at least two.

Get as many as possible to resale to suckers down the road. Fund your collecting for a year!  ;)

I love it and I'm in on 5 to 10 loose ones if money allows...  I'm going to use them as a Mando army because they just look attuned to such a use.

I didn't send more than a couple of the "Vintage-esque" ones.  Mostly cuz I'm lazy.j

But this one?  I might even army build  the Prequel junk just to get a few of these.

Check out the gun in the photo on the card...the barrel is a graflex tube.

Awesome figure, but he should be pristine, not all beat up.  But awesome nontheless.

This one really surprised me how many were against it...  I'm loving it.  Maybe I'm just easy with the "mail-away" idea, but this really just is too cool, and good eye on the Graflex tube there Mike.  I never noticed that, but clearly seems to be intentionally a new gun.

I'll probably get two - one for display and one for openers. I wonder if Hasbro will make a large enough batch for one straight run like the firing-rocket Boba, as it seems this is a pretty anticipated figure.

Nice, but I'd like to see the "fins" on the missile in the photo make the final product.
