Congrats. Curious, I don't see anything out of the ordinary on this piece other than the 12. What other distinguishing characteristics does this piece have from the regular piece?
The figures are almost the same, there are 3 things I noticed that distinguish the regular Stormtrooper to this.
1): There seems to be a bit more flash where the seams are conected in some areas, not as smooth as the final product.
2): The pegs for the footholes are different, the EP has a circle around the hexagonal shape and about 3/4's of bottom of the foot area is raised a bit. Not as flush as the regular figure.
3): The date stamp or the area of the COO is different on both of them.
The only other Stormtrooper I have to compare with the date stamp is my carded Takara version.
