Yeah I donít know.  Iíve only bothered to look at the one figure that I photographed.  Iím in the middle of unpacking the collection after my move in MayÖ maybe Iíll go ahead and check them all later.

Just check the date stamps, apparently: Date stamp 12021 bad. Date stamp 12051 good.

I can't read the damn things at all (looking on the figures themselves).  But I opened my second box and they were thankfully all good.

Thanks to whoever posted the photo so I could just check the box.  SMH...

I've got 21, 41, and 51 sets... I'll try to open them at some point soon to check.

Also, where in the movies do these orange guys show up... Rogue One?  Trying to figure out where to put them.

It seems that the pauldrons aren't just exclusive to Sandtroopers. I'm pretty sure I saw at least one Stormtrooper with a pauldron in the spaceport in SOLO, and there was another that was a squad leader in season 2 of The Mandalorian on Tython.  And there's also the upcoming Black Series release of a Stormtrooper with a pauldron (plus a backpack) as seen on Jedha in ROGUE ONE.

In the Jedi Outcast video game, the higher ranking Stormtroopers used pauldrons, so Iíve always used them as squad leaders in displays.

What Travis said. Movie-wise, I feel like they may have shown up in Solo? I'm pretty sure pauldrons on squad leaders is considered canon at this point.

They sold one in the Rogue One line but the Pauldron was removableÖ not sure if thatís because it was in the movie though.

I think the pauldron makes sense for an officer stormtrooper in general. It never made sense that they'd just have one just because they happened to be stationed on a desert planet. I also remember some of the old Dark Horse comics having stormies with pauldrons as a separate thing from the Sandtrooper thing. The backpacks for stormtroopers on desert planets were essentially air conditioners or something, right? Field gear? I think it makes sense for the pauldron to be separate from that.

Got two of my stormtrooper sets in.  I've looked at one of the commanders and the paint apps look great!

My review.

I finally cracked open the 6 Stormtrooper sets I have...

No real paint issues.  But the last two packs I opened had a lot of legs on backwards (I was able to rotate them into place), and the 3rd from last one I pulled out has his hands on the wrong arm.

4,000 figures, 26 years of collecting and I've never run into that one...
