Here is an idea for the Big H...just release Han as Stormtrooper with removable helmet. 

That's a good idea. Provided the basic figure stormtrooper is the same body as the comic book Hantrooper, I'll just swap the heads. :)

What head is under the helmet doesn't bother me. I never display troopers without their helmets. Ya never know when the rebels or separatists will attack. Gotta be ready for battle.
The Force is strong in this one,... too bad his action figure sucks.

We can hope.  The current version will take some Dremel tool work on both Han and Luke (aside from the height problem with Luke)

Augh, I've already taken a VOTC Stromie and hollowed out the helmet perfectly.
The head is codys too.
Oh well I'll buy a ton if I can find them!  ;D

After opening up the Han/Chewie Comic books two pack, I'm very encouraged about the removable helmet Stormtrooper next year. The Han Stormtrooper is a very solid figure and there's no excuse not to use that body for the '07 trooper.

If they are giving us a removable helmet Stormtrooper, I wish they would actually release him as a Davin Felth figure.

I happened to have my Tin Sandtrooper handy after I opened my comic Han and tried to swap the heads. unfortunately, the ball joints are different sizes, so neither head would fit on the other body. I hope Hasbro is industrious enough to make a new head sculpt for the stormtrooper.

Pics?  I want to see the comparison of the body to see what they are using. 

My 5 OT Tin Stormies are nice, I am just not sure about the chest armor being a bit small-ish.

Yeah, the way I look at the ANH tin Sandtrooper converted to a Stormtrooper is that it's better than the CT mold but not as good as the VOTC mold.  The one I have has replaced a CT Stormie on the shelf for now.

thats how i feel about this fig. it was what most of the 30 bucks invested in the tin was for. Eh, oh well, at least i got that great Vader!

It's identical in every way to the VOTC stormtrooper body accept that the ball joint that holds the helmet is made to fit Han's VOTC head. :D
