Vintage 2011 wave 5 Stormtrooper
« on: May 07, 2011, 08:04:13 PM »

I opened this figure just because I'm curious for each new release of stormtrooper. First, I'm really desappointed by this figure. The helmet is the same as IMPERIAL STORMTROOPER 2007 30th anniversary collection. This helmet isn't accurate. The figure with this helmet seems doesn't have a neck.  I would love with this figure have a complete holster for the Blaster Pistol. The only good point is for the articulation.



For me, the best version of stormtrooper is the VOTC (Vintage original trilogy collection) 2004 Stromtrooper.
The other really nice version of stormtrooper is the Spacetrooper released in 2008 in Legacy collection.

Hope that Hasbro will release an other version with a complete holster and with a accurate helmet.  :snowtroopers:

People have been reporting that there is a new variant being shipped with the better helmet sculpt.

Here's to hoping my brother in the US is actually checking Target as much as he says he is... I want both of those figures in those particular versions!  :)

The new version can actually be found in the vintage packs that are in abundance at Zellers.

Actually, and as JesseVader08 previously mentioned it, the Vintage 3 pack Stormtrooper is a TVC Sandtrooper without pauldron and packsack. You can see that something isn't quite right by noticing the appreciable gap between the base of the helmet and the shoulders; the neck looks too long because this space was ment to be filled by the pauldon.

Now I am confused, because all that the wave 5 vintage Stormtrooper is,is the body of the legacy/dewback Sandtrooper combined with the with th head of the TAC Stormtrooper.

http://www.rebelscum.com/TVC41Storm.asp

So how does differ from the Stormtrooper in the Vintage Target 3 pack?  The only difference would be the head of the 3 pack vintage one is actually the Nonremovable sandtrooper helmet?  Am I correct?

That would be my guess, non-removable helmet with the longer neck post.

Actually, the Vintage Stormtrooper uses a different body.  The Sandtrooper one (which is used in the 3 pack as well) has a hole in the back for the backpack.  The Vintage one most likely used the upper torso and head of the 30th Anniversary Stormtrooper: http://www.rebelscum.com/TAC20storm.asp
