Stormtrooper [FOTD #2,284] was from China, I assumed there may be differences. And indeed, there were. Minor changes to the sculpt and deco set apart what I assumed would have been the same figure in two styles - you'll want both.
First up: deco. It's a 5-jointed Stormtrooper with an added pauldron, sure, but there's more to it than that. The white is slightly different. The figure has 9 painted black dots on its abdomen, while the single carded releases have none. The back of the helmet has painted grey trapezoids, while the single carded version is bare white. The blue vents on the helmet don't seem to be painted as evenly as the single-carded figure, though, so it's not a complete improvement - but overall, it's a little better to look at. (Plus it has Baze Malbus in the box.)
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
