Here's a look at the new Resistance figure Major Vonreg (voiced by Lex Lang), who'll be purchasing this figure?

Might get an extra for a custom. The helmet visor is reminiscent of a Phase I Clone pilot. :D

I’m up for it! It looks like it would fit in well enough with “realistic” style figures. And I’m up for any new 3.75 offerings.

I may not like the new "canon" but I like some of the designs Disney's been doing. This one is going to be a must. It's like a cross between a ERG and a TIE pilot. And the helmet is like the Clone Commandos. :{J

Out of all the Resistance reveals, this is the only figure that grabbed my attention - it looks like an old EU mash-up, which I dig.

Yeah I was lucky enough to order this one online, only wanted it for the helmet though. lol
Definitely wasn't gonna pay the $9 +SH for him.

I picked up a few of the resitance figs for fodde when they were cheap at Walmart, mainly Spaz and Sinara for the head. Wish I could have found another Yeager for cheaper.

Edit: I just noticed that he isn't the same shade of red as the Sith Jet Trooper.

I really like this figure along with the rest of the Resistance line. The only one I didn't end up getting was the Poe/BB8 set. Honestly this cartoon was the best media released from the ST era (and that includes the last 2 movies).

The cartoon was profoundly vacant, and added virtually nothing to the SW universe, that's why I had no interest in the toy line. With CW and Rebels, I was genuinely interested in the characters - never had that feeling with any of the newly introduced characters in Resistance. I think that's what drives action figure sales as well. Vonreg was the only figure I picked up, and that's mostly because it reminded me of something that could have appeared in the old EU. I would have much preferred the universe line from Solo stuck around instead and gave us some basic TROS figures.

If I find it for a good price I'll pick it up. I like the idea of using it as a Royal Guard pilot in my Imperial customs I'm wanting to do.

The Jet Trooper, it has the removable chest/jet area. Although I'm having a tough time finding a replacement for Vonreg's chest gear, the AT-AT Driver's is too large as is the Clone Pilots, not that they even remotely look the same. Too bad the TIE Pilot doesn't have removable chest gear.
