What can you do...the helmet sucks big time.

There are those of us who choose to ignore it, and others of us that can't get past it.

Not a good job from the neck up.

30 AC, Bad:



Evolutions, Good:



If you compare the 2 pics, I don't think anything else needs to be said.

I've got a pair of these opened now.  I don't mind the figure and think it's cool to be able to get Stormtroopers for less than the $10 each from before.

Unless they start showing up everywhere, I doubt I'll pass on this one many times.

Well If you really wanted to get picky, even the evo helm is bad. I mean It's undersized. The bust ups head is more or less the right size, and works better.

I've got one and now that I've opened it I know I'll get more. At first site I thought it was going to be an issue with me with the helmet. I got over that real quick. I definitely want two more so I can have Luke and Han stormtrooper figs. I look to have 20 more beyond those as well. So I'm hoping to get 22 total including the two "customs."

But as I said, at present, only have the one.

I see nothing overly off about the TAC Stormie helmet.....looking at my pic, that is what they actually look like - when you post an IMAX size pic, everything looks weird.

I've got two, and both of them became my Han and Luke troopers.  I prefer the Evo sculpt myself.  It's more to do with the legs than anything else; you can get a lot more poses out of that one.  If they could combine those legs with the VOTC sculpt, I'd be all over it.

The nozzels aren't painted right on the cheeks, and the helmet just doesn't seem to be very "defined" in terms of sculpt.  If this were the first time ever we had this newer sculpt of the Stormie, I wouldn't be complaining.  But they've done much better helmets before like Dressel pointed out.  So, that's why some people like me are passing on this figure.  Which is fine, I can spend my money elsewhere in the line because I already have enough Stormies that I want (and that I like more).

Also, the Bust Up helmet is very cool, no arguments there.

I have one which is all I really wanted. I've never liked TKs as much as I do the ROTS Clones so I don't feel the need to a collect a ton of them.

I've purchased 21 so far and 4 are on the way from NFC.

Normally, my main goal is 36 (one platoon,) but since I've already gotten the Sergeants in the form of the Tantive IV stomies, I only need 32 to make the platoon. However, I decided that this trooper, with the helmet off, makes a great Lieutenant, so I've taken 4 and added rank insignias. ( 1 for each of my 4 Platoons.) I'll need to replace them, so in the end I'm picking up 36 anyway.
