    Yeah I think the proto - even though still far from a strong likeness to the ROTJ helmet - was closer. The shape really looks nothing like ROTJ and the overpaint of the mouth seemed more noticeable in the proto, which is the key ROTJ identifier.

    HT's first (ANH) stormie was miles from being accurate to either ANH stunt or hero (it actually looks mostly like a better painted version of the old Sideshow stormie helmet from 6 years earlier) so not sure why anyone would be expecting them to nail the unusual distortions of the ROTJ helmet.

    It's like when people say they want an ESB Chewy from HT... when every previous version of Chewy looks like the same bad taxidermy cat, just with the face reglued a bit. The ANH version is decent/okay (and can be made really good with mods,) but the others are just road-kill bad, so asking for an ESB-specific version as if HT can do it is just silly.

    What this release does prove is that no company is ever going to really nail the stormie helmet in 1/6 - that kind of accuracy belongs to custom figures.

    That being said, can't wait to have one of these in-hand. If you get over the helmet sculpt inaccuracy, it's still a very nicely done "generic stormie" and the armor is beautifully done (just as the ANH was too.)

    The original prototype looks more like the ROTJ one. As already pointed out, this is the idealized version. Who knows, maybe Hts will do a true ROTJ version down the toad

    Yeah, maybe they can nail that.

    Used rewards and a coupon to order a third trooper. May get a fourth for a small squad. Really like how these turned out. Improved articulation should make for some good fun with four of them.

    A few rough shots, itís a lot more weathered than it looked in the official photos.
    Itís got loads of small weathering details all over, really impressive straight out the box.
