Here's some pics of the ones I found at Walmart -




The Stormtrooper on the left in this shot is the TANTIVE IV Stormie, and the one on the right is the VOTC version for comparison.




Then the Rebels here -




And a close up of both Stormies from the set -

WTF is up with the utility belts on those two Stormtroopers?!?!

Thanks for the case ratio info, and thanks for the pics Chewie!

Nicklab, Chewie turned the belts around.

No problem Anton.

The belts on my Stormies were all on backwards in the packaging, but you can turn them around like Anton said.  I hadn't realized it when I snapped that first close up pic, was in a bit of a hurry and just took the figures out and snapped that image.  Sorry about that.

I now have three of these sets, and the belts were on backwards on all six stormies.  They slide around easily though so you can have them look correct.

Great pic Chewie.  I think I'll have to pass on this one though.  $20 for 2 stormies, a Vader I really don't want or need, and 2 under articulated pieces of  :-X.  I would want there helmets though  :P

I'll definitely grab this set.

I like that the RFTs have different heads.  Even though he "sucks", it's still nice to have a bit more variety in the RFT corps on my shelf.   :P

I like the Stormies too, very happy that Hasbro got that fix in on time - the dirty ones would have sucked hard.   >:(

I want the helmets and the heads, so it's one set for me...  Stormies look fantastic. :)

The heads on the Fleet Troopers are regular/old school pegs.  I'll probably pop the heads off a couple of them this week for customs.

The Stormies are pretty good, I think I like them better than the VOTC version... they seem to be more of a pure white plastic for the armor.

Opened a set of these last night. I was really bummed that the rebel blasters were the puny ones. Otherwise, I like the stormies.

I noticed that in your pictures..but thought it was just the light or perhaps "age" but they are not old enough to "yellow" yet.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing - so I matched them up to a couple carded VOTC Stormies, and these Tantive version seem to be a little brighter.  Maybe my eyes are just playing tricks on me though.   ???

The only figures I have that have really "yellowed" are Clone Wars carded SA clone trooper.

The EE versions did not experience this change.

A buddy of mine picked up 4 sets, two each from different stores. The first 2 he opened up had only dark-haired RFTs, the second 2 had only brown haired ones. I picked up 2 sets last night from a totally different store. One BP has 1 of each trooper the other has both dark hair.

If getting both troopers is important to you, inspect the package at the store.
