As pointed out on FFG's forum, the addition of Folco Boffin immediately makes any Strider deck better -- if he sacrifices turn one, your effective starting threat is one less than it would be without him, two less in a two-hobbit deck, and three-less in a three-hobbit deck. And depending on your deck, you may want him to hang around until Strider shows up.

I'll grant that his ability isn't particularly exciting, but I think he'll be dead useful. LoPippin was the only real lore option for a hobbit deck, but with Folco we can now even include *Bilbo* in a hobbit secrecy deck. (Folco + Bilbo + Merry/Pippin start at 19 threat). Folco has the best possible stat distribution as well, not wasting threat on useless defense, but 2 willpower and 2 attack. So in a Hobbit deck, we're talking about a hero with 2 wp and 2 attack for 4 threat! Few hobbits are better targets for Fast Hitch.
