auction for a mock up prototype stormtrooper on ebay. any idea what this - is or was supposed to be? kinda looks like the luke/yoda walmart exclusive style packaging, with the clear semi-circular plastic. i didn't hear anything about an exclusive - or even a new stormtrooper of any kind.
upon looking at it further, it looks like it has the newer style hands, with the articulation on each finger like dooku and imperial officer, and the newer shoulder guards that came with the biker scout. the hands definitely look new, since you can see that the armor has been sculpted on top of them, but the rest of it looks like the old stormtrooper.
