Just got him on Saturday, I would have to say that this figure is definitely one of the highlights of the SWTF line. One thing to remember when looking at these figs is that they were not designed by Hasbro's Transformer design teams, they were designed by the Star Wars design team, thus the heavy Star Wars influence, and very little to do with Transformers as we know them. The ARC-170 starfighter http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/arc170fighter/ was above and beyond one of my favorite starship designs to come out of the new movies. It is an aggressive design, covered in weaponry, and looks damn cool to boot. The transformation is simple, not Throttlebot simple, but definitely not Masterpiece level either. The bot mode is well done, with just enough kibble to make it look like a robot. Which leads me to another point, the rest of the SWTF's have really made an attempt to make the mech look like the character that it represents, the ARC-170 Clone Trooper is a wonderful tool for this media, because they are covered in armor anyway. Whereas you never saw Luke running around with half an X-Wing strapped to his back. The bot mode has decent articulation, although because of the transformation scheme of the arms, they can be a little difficult to pose without some frustration. The arms do have shoulder, mid-bicep, elbow, and wrist articulation. The legs have very low knee joints and look kinda goofy, but do feature hip, mid-thigh, knee, and ankle articulation. He also has waist articulation due to his TF scheme. His head is on a swivel, but due to the helmet design, his head barely budges. Odd. His BFG's are awesome, and definitely add to the menacing appearance of this figure. One thing that bugged me was the lack of paint apps on his face. I wish it would have been a Clone trooper helmet design, as opposed to a clone pilot helmet, that would have alleviated the need for paint apps on the face. But as it stands, there is just a blob of silver where the face should be. Overall, I would give him a 5 out of 5 for SWTF's, and a 3 out of 5 when compared to other TF's.
