Title: WalMart 3.75" Black Series SA First Order Stormtrooper
Post by: jjreason on February 16, 2016, 09:03:29 PM
Not a lot of good things to say about this figure. I was so excited to find one that I just grabbed it without too much though. Before I opened it, I could see some minor paint issues, which I guess you're always going to find when black meets white in such a small scale. Not a big enough deal to get me to consider returning it.

Upon opening the figure my opinion went down. The materials feel soft & almost rubbery, not at all solid like the Kylo Ren from this line. I was afraid to experiment with bending the elbows & knees for fear of having a pin sheer off - luckily nothing like that happened.

This figure also suffers a bit from that odd condition afflicting some SA figures (notably Chewie for some reason) where the lower legs below the knees are very difficult to align in any manner that would allow them to look as though they're NOT suffering some sort of dislocation injury, let alone be able to stand.

All in all, I was hoping for more.

I've got three of these, only opened one so far... mine doesn't seem to be as bad as what you described but I'd agree that the Kylo figure seems more solid.
