I wouldn't have bought it even if I thought it was real because the spelling in the listing is atrocious.  Nice job covering himself as he's not sure if it's real.  Scammer with 100% feedback.  Greeeeeeat.

I actually contacted him and said he'd spelt both Rare and World wrong. He replied saying thanks and continued listing with the incorrect spellings. That pauldron needs an extra coat to hide the orange. Why not use the white pauldron for this fake  ::)

This one is almost close enough to get away with it, but the cheek lines make it obvious that it's a Jedi Knight Luke head and not the real Series 4 chase figure.  Oh, and the fact that he comes with the green Jedi Luke lightsaber as well...

Even though the head isn't right, where might that helmet come from, if not from one of the Storm Trooper variants?  I don't have a regular Storm Trooper, but I didn't think that it came with a removable helmet.  Could it be from a regular Star Wars figure?  Seems like the cavity would be too small.  You don't think he could have dremeled out a regular Storm Trooper Kubrick head, do you?

It's just a regular stormtrooper helmet and body.

So the helmet isn't sculpted to the head.  Does the regular Stormtrooper just come with a plain, black head like the Halo Kubricks do?

I've never tried to take the helmet off, but I'd assume so.

Damn, he ended the listing.  Must have been the e-mail I sent him asking where he got such a unique figure...

Not tried it with a stormtrooper but I've taken the helmet off a scout trooper and it has a black head.

It looks like the regular stormtrooper has a white head underneath on mine-
