I am sure that the #41 one will be a little better, but I am not gonna be picky. That one is not out yet, and this is still a very good figure. I would give it a 9 out of 10. The hips don't bother me one bit; just put them in running poses if you don't like that, and have #41 in "at attention" poses for your dioramas.
Also, no way in the world am I gonna pass up this figure when #41 will probably be harder to get and produced in lower quantities.
Nothing in the ROTS line will be produced in higher quantities than Colletion #'s 1-12, so get them while you can. This will be the first out of these first 12 to disappear from the pegs.
Right now I have 14 of them. Kinda went a little light on these at first... went to several places today, and believe it or not, only found 1 Clonetrooper out of 2 Walmarts and 2 Targets... and tons and tons of Anakin, Obi Wan, Vader, Yoda, etc. from that assortment.
If you are an army builder, and you don't like it and pass on it, I hope you don't regret it...
