The Tantive IV Trooper came first, and I believe the Evo Sandtroopers were based off it then, but the belt on them was different perhaps?  I can't recall now and my Empire's tucked away at the moment.

I have probably a lot of the 30AC Stormtrooper with the lopsided legs, but I got them insanely cheap.  I couldn't pass them up for $1, $2, or $3...  I have a lot of basically every Imperial in white because of sales and clearances back at that time.  Really went nuts.

Evo Stormtroopers were from 2005, and Tantive IV battle pack was from 2007. I think the belts were the same, but I never owned the EVO clone to stormtrooper sets, just the Tantive trooper and the sandtrooper legends figure reissued from the Evo set.

Ah ok, so I got that reversed.  Can't believe they were still shilling that ****** Vader and RFT's in 2007.

Over-shilling. Remember, they stuck them in a  comic pack together.

I know, dismal choices on figures.  Those Marvel sets were dismal choices on comic packs but basically pure profit I suppose, for them.  Still, bad choices on the paintjobs at the very least.  I got the idea, but the execution was just bad.  I know a less comic-ish deco would've persuaded me on probably the Mandalorian sets at least.

Yeah, the lack of waist articulation is somewhat of a bummer, but it displays nicely in a statue-esque kinda way. 
Binders full of astromechs...

I actually didn't mind the waist joint missing.  That's a joint that I can take or leave on at least 50% of action figures honestly.  It's nicer on troopers, but beyond them I'm not so sure.

And honestly I'd prefer less ball jointed torsoes in this line.  They're more complex and costly, and just not something I'm wild about.
