Good call on the articulation count.
They said 13 points but the Stormie sports the same exact points as the Clonetrooper did... Why they went with 13 in the preview I'll never know. I do recall being quite worried about said count though, thinking Hasbro dicked us over on a wrist or something.
Thankfully they didn't.
Ya know what though? The holster sucks. Don't like how they did it one bit, but it'll do... Blaster looks like poodoo in it though... This would really hurt any other figure in my eyes... Hell, the Stormtrooper's got a few flaws I'm noticing, and flaws that would really detract from ANY other figure, but this thing's so poseable I'm biased.
I saw someone at Scum complaining about a lack of hip ball/sockets... He's getting a bit of a "you're nuts", which I see their point, but I also see his point as the Stormie's legs are closer together than other figures. Lando's the same way actually...
Still, this figure's so kick ass, and I can get him into several running poses... I'm happy as a clam, and he doesn't look out of place with the CT Stormie. He'll "blend" witht hem I think. I've been posing mine amidst a line-up of CT's and he gets lost in them. Cool stuff.
