It's charmingly retro, and a red pauldron is cooler than a black one if you ask me. Other than that? It's a slightly different figure - perhaps a different rank, I don't know what role pauldrons play in the First Order if any yet - and I like it more than the Jungle version of the vehicle, too. After all, I live in the desert.
The Stormtrooper Officer figure is a tiny bit whiter than the Jungle mass-release black pauldron version, and the gun is fundamentally the same. The paint masks for the black body glove deco are also similar to the Jungle trooper, which is to say they're a bit softer than the single-carded Stormtroopers. If you got the Jungle version, this Stormtrooper is a lot like it. It just feels more, I don't know, cheerful. Fresher. Expensive-r.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth. Full disclosure - I work there and this is our exclusive.
