Just so we're clear I in NO WAY endorse Nazis, Hilter Youth or the like.
I am simply posting this image for comparative reasons. I wouldn't be surprised if the flag included with the figure was altered more as to not so closely resemble the Nazi staff/flag.

Do not forget that the Empire was based very much on the Nazis. Therefore, I see no reason to change the flag.

And as a side note, the Nazis got this ideal from the legions of Rome. What comes around, goes around. ::)

Surprising to see so many of you guys getting your panties in a bunch over the price of this.  It is only a few more dollars more than the VOTC Stormtrooper and it IS an exclusive.  I'm willing to bet if this cost a few dollars less all of you haters would be all over it.  For people who spend so much money on children's toys to get so uptight over a few dollars is just too funny.

According to the info on this one, the insert card is removable so that 501st legion dudes can put their own card in there to have their "own" action figure.

Since I'm not a member of the 501st legion, I think I'll stick a different card in there... 



I've always wanted a "Ryne Sandberg in Stormtrooper Disguise" figure, now that dream can be realized...  :D

This exclusive is just kind of Ho-Hum for me.  I might be interested if the text was not in English.  It's an easy pass.  Nice package though.
