I wish they had a holster so I could use them elsewhere.

I was reading over at Bantha Skull that a lot of the Stormies on Endor didn't have holsters either, so you could certainly use them there.

I really think the holster thing is over-rated since it's so inconsistent in the movies. 

StarWars.com Stormtrooper Pic Gallery

Look through the pics and see how inconsistent it is.  ANH has troopers with no holsters, left side holsters or right side holsters (even within the same scenes - Tantive and DS).  In ESB (Cloud City), the holster is always on the right hand side.  Most of the ROTJ Stormtroopers have no holster (Death Star II and Endor).

Just take these awesome new Stormtroopers, enjoy them, and put them in whatever scenes you'd like. ;)

The 501st would bring you up on charges of Heresy.  ;D

Tracking info indicates that my shipment is coming in today.  Looking forward to seeing the new Stormtroopers firsthand!

Yeah, it was pointed out to me that even in ANH, not all stormtroopers have holsters, so I'm not as annoyed. That said;

Hasbro really should retire all previous stormtrooper molds. I put the Han Stormtrooper head on the RO Stormtrooper and it looks amazing. It looks to me that the Stormtrooper belt is a separate piece, so should be easy to tool new belts to give us a holster and another with the proper Luke stormtrooper belt. 

At this point, I'm just going to replace one company in army with these RO Troopers and perhaps sell the outdated and yellowed company of VOTC stormtroopers.

As for the movie inconsistencies, that all really talks to the different attitudes between all three films while being filmed. In ANH (I cringe having to make the note. It just should be SW!) They were just making a movie, never in a million years expecting that every detail in every frame would be studied and analyzed. But they still cared as much as the budget would allow. In Empire, there was a ton of discipline and attention to detail. Unfortunately with Jedi they were more or less phoning it in, probably as a result of the change in the producing staff.

Everytime I see a new and improved Stormtrooper, I weep a little bit for your bank account!

I agree 100%....even my kids call that movie Star Wars!
