Why would you try to use anything other than the Comic Pack Han/Luke heads?  We already know they fit on those bodies, and under those helmets nicely.

Found 2 more at lunch today - I'm at 26.

I bought 2 and have another coming from HTS. Even as a 99% OT purist, I'm really liking the head they gave the stormtrooper. :)

My preferences are VTSC Pilot Luke and VOTC Han, but would be fine with the comic pack heads - I'm just not willing to pay $20 to get 2 heads!  Any customizers out there have a bag of extra heads?  My main concern is getting the head on the peg, not too worried about the helmet fit on the actual head.

That's why I didn't do it either.  That, and because I'd bet a dollar that Hasbro puts those heads on the new SA body soon enough anyway and we get the whole figure for $7.

I wonder if the Good To Go Customs Stormtrooper helmet would fit those heads?

Hasbro, ball jointed heads suck! They make figures look like they've been hung by a noose. Please use neck ball joints like the late 80's GI Joes.

Got two more tonight...  Last two Target had. 

I really don't see a problem with the helmet myself.  I think it looks quite nice, and it's possible to get it to sit a variety of ways on the figure's head too.  I'm perfectly content with this figure...  Getting as many as I can find at this point.

Same here - you have to be looking pretty closely IMO to find problems with this guy.  When the 30 or so of this guy is mixed in with 90 other stormtroopers, I won't be noticing his slightly puffy helmet or whatever.

I gotta agree too. The helmet doesn't look that bad to me. I have two of these. My only complaints are one of 'em has one leg longer than the other (but that's kind of a cool novelty) and I don't care for the scarred face. Jango was scarred by something that happened in his life. Although these are his clones, they wouldn't have the same scars because the same event did not happen to them. Does that make sense to anyone?

Go figure.

Beats the crap out of me - apparently the Wal-mart that Paul frequents is clearing out Wave 3 - and put out several fresh cases worth at the same time.  It's lunacy, it's got to be some sort of mistake, but that's how they're ringing up.

You guys both have the most disgustingly insane luck with this hobby. :)

I got two over the weekend...  I find them in two's and three's here and there, never more, sometimes less, and that's all...  They're still very uncommon figures around Pittsburgh.  Wave 3 in general is uncommon and you're lucky to see anything from it other than Biggs or Vader.  For that matter, Wave 2 is difficult to find except Han or the Death Star Trooper.  I've still yet to see a Rebel Guard on the pegs in a store!

This 30AC drought's getting really friggin' old because, not much is around anywhere, save for the Obi's/R2's and odd Mace's most people are used to.
