PostSubject: Stormtrooper Help Please   Thu Apr 14, 2016 8:02 pm

Well, I am afraid I have purchased one of "poon's army" in my quest for a stormtrooper with matching limbs amd body in the "whiteness" department.

Please review the posted pictures and description, and give me your thoughts.

Note: my description is based around TIG details concerning these repro's.

Always, thanks in advance for your expertise!

PRO'S:

Head does not appear to be squished.
Shoulders and thighs seem to be correct by having "muscle mass".
Gap between eyes does not seem excessive.
Arm "black lines" seem correct.
Gun seems correct and is blue/black translucent.
Doesn't lean forward when standing.

CON'S:

Won't hold a gun in right hand as well as my confirmed vintage figures do.
Definitely appears to have 2 right feet.
Definite flat spot under arms.
Can't tell on length of chest indention.
2-Line HK with the "dots".
Small black vents on back of helmet, although the paint does seem to go all the way to the edge of the indention.

If you need any more photos, just let me know.

Thanks

Here are a couple of reads you can look over. I will try to look your over when I get a few minutes. May also send a pm to Stefan (Walkie) and or AJ (Aussiejames) to see what opinion they may have on it.

Three things, and they're based off of the pictures provided.

1) The spray ops on the back of the helmet don't look like they meet the edges of the indentation.

2) Under the arm looks a little "V-shape" ish

3) Those feet look a little suspect.

How does the clip of the gun look? Is it uneven? And what about the pegholes of the feet? The repros will be slightly bigger than the original.

Here's the link:
