    As it turns out, this figure is really a pretty decent one. I'm still amazed that it got made at all, given that this character had so little screen time -- but I suppose he did have one line. From the side-by-side images, it's pretty obvious that it was hard to find a decent shot of the guy because, well... there aren't any. Hasbro did a good job of putting this one together though, as it's a reasonably well made, decently sculpted and painted figure.

    That's what I think anyway. What about you?

    I am excited that they made this for two reasons.

    1. More Hoth Troopers. I loved this battle and the more that are made the better a future diorama can become.

    2. If anyone recalls the old Decipher card game, they directly linked the character to the Cheer's character. I though that was a clever little bit of lore that they did.

    Keep it up. It is a good figure of a neat little sidenote in the story of Star Wars.

    He goes into the Mos Eisley Cantina where everybody knows his name. I remember that card.

    As for the figure, they had more than just the movie since he still had the mustache and looked pratically the same in Cheers so they may have also used footage from the show to get the likeness correct.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    Yeah, the hands are a bit big. Not sure why... not sure why the left hand is posed like that either. (Are those hands new or are they recycled from another figure?)

    A few more side-by-side images...

    (I don't count that scene as his second line BTW, 'cause I'm pretty sure that's not his voice. )

    The likeness is really close. Going off of memory, I didnt think it was that close.

    Great figure, I've no complaints. Cool cardback image aswell. It has boosted my appetite for ever more Hoth rebels and Imperials:

    Deck Officer and update of remaining vintage Hoth figure (if different..but if not make 2 anyway)
    Torryn Farr
    Hoth rebel soldier SA resculpt (under no circumstances is it to be a kitbash or straight rerelease of existing figures)
    Hobbie
    Zev
    Janson
    Wedge snowspeeder pilot
    Luke snowspeeder pilot
    Leia Hoth resculpt
    Han Hoth (hood down and neutral stance)
    R5-M2
    SA snowtrooper
    And a C-3PO, perhaps a slightly less shiny repaint of the ROTS figure, could do with being included in a future Hoth Wave. Overall he seems to get short shrift compared with R2.
    And absolutely no more Darth Vaders!!!!
