Hopefully he will look better once Cody's head is plucked off and Han or Luke's replace it.

He looks fine to me, for what he is...  It's a scarred clone with the black hood (ala the Death Star Gunner) on.  It's definitely not Cody under there.

Looks great! Can't wait to get ahold of a few. Nice to confirm that he's on the proper body.

Very cool.  Just when you thought that the VOTC Stormtrooper couldn't be topped we get something like this.  Progress is a good thing.

Now if it were a year ago (hell, even 6 months ago), I would have bitched about the Jango head being used. But after getting the Death Star Gunner, I've realized that using the removable helmet with the Jango head is actually cool. The DSG is a great figure, but now that we're getting the VOTC Stormtrooper with this treatment... wow. Put me down for as many as I can get my hands on.

I feel the same way as I do about the DSG: the helmet will stay on, but I still don't like all of the prequel-bridging liberties Hasbro has been making. It'll bother me a little to know Jango is under there.

I don't like the helmet... looks too much like a merge between the Commtech helmet and a VOTC helmet to me... plus seems like the removable Stormie helmets just look cheap/not painted well.  Hopefully it will turn out good though.

I guess my thought of Stormies being regular guys i.e. not clones have been squashed.
I remember my dream now.

Dude.  Please wake up.  I know it's your thing to come out against every clone trooper and imperial army builder and say it sucks or the version from the 90's is good enough, but just come out with the real reasons you are passing, if that's even true.  This little game is getting very, very old.  Seriously, what else do you want from these figures that you come out with the "pass" every time something good is shown?

Naboo Hangar tech though, whoooo!!  There's a buy!

Eh, they are just trying to spice up their troopers with the Jango heads anyway.  They can sort of win on 2 fronts here.  They have merged the prequel and original trilogies together.   Prequel fans are happy Jango heads are on there and they can satisfy OT fans by keeping the helmets on the figures.

I was just saying that I'm passing on this figure, no need to get upset.

It's a VOTC Stormtrooper at a basic carded figure price.  That makes me happy.

I'll just keep the helmet on.
