Texico, House 9, and GCC look the most interesting to me.  I don't own any Mercs, but Texico always was the faction I liked most there.  GCC have a good look too.  House 9 sounds good for mixing and matching.

I'm interested to see faction that are more stealthy as opposed to CCC and others that do a lot of collateral. So perhaps Sefadu, KemVar and House 4. Although, I'm not sure whether I'll get the all-in during the PM or wait to retail.

Texico ftw, but I'm biased. 

I think I'll prolly like the Houses too

Having no prior experience with MERCS I can only go off of the fluff+appearance+mechanics summary. Based on all of that, in no particular order, I'm most interested in EU Inc., Sefadu, and ISS. I'm intrigued by the USCR, but I think their high collateral damage could become frustrating to me. It's the same reason I'm not too interested in the CCC or House 9.
