Title: 5POA Rogue One Stormtrooper
Post by: jjreason on December 22, 2016, 05:03:38 PM
Well folks, like I posted elsewhere I finally caved & purchased a number of the 5POA offerings from Hasbro. This figure, as well as the Imperial Ground Crew were the 2 that caused it.

Simply put, this is the nicest modernization of a vintage figure I think I've seen. Now let me put some constraints on that....

When you put the vintage Stormtrooper by this guy, there are so many similarities. The neutral pose, proportions (slimness?).... usefulness of the figure. It's like someone took it upon themselves to make the best vintage stormtrooper they could make, using today's methods & materials.

Sure there are a few things in the package to distract you (a removable pauldron for one, as well as a battle damaged snap on armor piece), but really have a good look at the helmet especially, and then the figure... I'd be surprised to hear anyone gripe about anything OTHER THAN the lack of articulation.

Grab one on sale just to open & check out - very satisfying figure.

Worst figure ever.  Let me begin - it is wrong type of white.  The gun does not shot lasers.  In fact it does not work at all.   And Luke and/or Han is not under the helmet.   The Stormtrooper is also too short. He needs to be at least 7.23 mm taller to be a regulation height.   Not even to talked about the LACK OF ARTICULATION.    :speechless-smiley-004: :P :speechless-smiley-004: :P   

Sorry, I could not resist.   Happy Holidays jjreason.

This has got to be one of my favorite figures now.I know its missing articulation, but makes up for it being solid on its feet, easily posible, and a great likeness. Perfect for those dioramas with rows of stormies!

I'm not an army builder, but this figure is seriously tempting me. I have the one basic figure and the one that came with Cassian in the two pack, but there has been more than one occasion when I've picked up another one in the store and forced myself to put it back.

My only complaint is the fact that all of them seem to have warped blasters.  I had to heat them up to fix then and then cool them right away.
