I'm a big fan of the funky SW aliens, and as such, I love this guy.
I love his design, I love his head/neck articulation and mask. I love the colors, I love the base, I really like him I guess.
It's weird sometimes how certain figures can strike some people as really cool, while others are kinda like "eh, another alien".
Mine doesn't seem to suffer from any "soft plastic issues" so far, so I guess I got a good one.
