to the other carded version but mine - and this might be a one-off - has a super loose head. You can spin it around like in a cartoon - it could just be a fluke on my sample, but I haven't exactly opened a bunch of these yet. The deco and plastic is, otherwise, pretty much the same. The head isn't loose to the point of falling off, but the spinning action is certainly notable.
The "Combine!" accessory is what makes this one distinctive. It is made of several moving parts - the grips move, the blue yoke spins, and the kickstand moves too. Basically, it's a little bipod gun for your troops - it's nice. The other trooper has a gun that's huge and lovely, so either one is arguably just as worthwhile to buy. It's definitely an argument to army-build, which right now you're likely going to do by default. Two basic Stormtroopers, an Armor Up, and a few in an Amazon set will net you at least 6 so far. 6 was always my target number for troopers - that fills out a vintage Imperial Troop Transporter, and more than that without a big playset or giant vehicle seems pretty pointless. But I digress - the little weapon is white and blue with some red and grey accents. It's small, and roughly at the same height as his junk. So that's funny.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
