I have the RiD version, and I like it quite a lot. It's a pretty good figure, and it poses well. The translucent plastic in the arms presents a minor complication, but I don't expect that it will be a real problem in the foreseeable future as long as you don't do something rude to it.
I'm perfectly comfortable recommending it for those of us who don't want to pay crazy aftermarket prices (whether the FE is worth it or not).
(Also, there's a peghole on his shoulder, and his gun looks pretty great as a shoulder cannon)
