I wanted to vote 9.5 but since that wasn't an option I rounded up to 10. My only minor grip was that I'd like the Cobra symbol to be present on his helmet. That's it! Just an overall great figure. It may not be modern era or 25th related but it blows all previous Cobra Troopers away. Well, maybe it doesn't blow away the ParaViper but it is better.

I have six of them now and they are very cool. The drawbacks I have noticed are the same ones mentioned here on the site- needs a COBRA emblem somewhere, the Steyr is rubbish and the one weapon that he can handle is a bit bulky but it does work. I am still figuring what weapon I want to put in his hands. The classic Druganov doesn't cut it- his fists are a bit too open for the skinny gun. I may play around and try him with some EF shotguns.
Really like the bulkiness to the figure as it seems he is more durable. The backpack is really good too.

the shotgun feels a little too 'The CORPS' for my tastes and he can't hold the machine gun. However I do like the update, reminds me of the design in the Devil's Due comics
keep a close eye on the paint, many I've seen have had slop issues

Gave him a 9, I think he's freakin awesome, but his leetle feet bother me, only thing keeping him from a 10 in my book.
I do understand the grumbles about the sigil, doesn't bother me but I can see how others are bothered. However the crap about the guns I don't get, The big one is a little goofy but the bullpup machine gun is in no way unrealistic or unable to be held. But that's just me.
Only seen one so far, must find more before movie stuff hits.
Yeah my name is really dumb.

FINALLY got a Resolute Trooper (3 actually ) courtesy of one of my states sightings guys (thanks Jimmy!)
simply put, this is one of the best, if not the best, figures in the 25th line ~ the body is perfect, i think he is the first figure that can really and properly shoulder his rifle in a 2 handed grip (besides Viper who has the 'cheat' wrists)
Great, great sculpting abounds, looks super real world, and even his big rifle that i thought looked goofy in pix is actually pretty decent. an utterly perfect figure in my opinion, 10/10. my only gripe is the pupils on mine are all painted a little 'crazy' :p
i'd give absolutely anything if the Cobra Troopers in the movie looked more like this and less like idiots in metal skull masks and box vests. aside from the light blue that could easily be black or dark navy, there's nothing about this design that wouldn't work in "real life", since that seems to be what it is modeled on (like Resolute Duke). Maybe the shoulder pads, but they are no more ridiculous the the Movie Vipers helmet and chest piece.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

I like this figure. Got em with Cobra Commander resolute, their both still on their card. But after all the years of the old cobra troopers and the officers it's nice to see something new. Yeah i wish they had a Cobra logo somewhere, though i do like it just as well without. I'll wait till i get another one or so before i take one out to really get a good look at it.

Honestly when I saw images on the internet of this figure, I was not really interested. But when I saw him in person, I really liked this figure.
As far as the rest of the Resolute Line I am not all that interested, but this figure is a solid 9 to me.

5. I like the 5pk red ones better. The paint on the 5pk troopers seem to be applied better from what I've seen so far.

Good solid nine in my book. Complaints for me include some paint issues and only having one decent gun. And of course, the problem that all 25th figures have- lack of a leg swivel of some sort. However, Hasbro has finally fixed the elbow problem. This figure can bend a full 90 degrees! I will definitely be buying more-- this is by far the best troop builder I have ever seen from any line, Star Wars, Indy or other...
