Our new friend here shares a lot of parts with the Hovertank Pilot (Toys R Us exclusive) and the aforementioned Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader. Those two each have unique belts too, plus very distinctive deco and in the Pilot's case, a unique helmet. They're all great, but if you want to make the best impression on your desk with one figure go ahead and get that Squad Leader. If you see the regular shoretrooper, it's pretty fantastic - I would army build these guys if I did such things with the bigger, more expensive figures. Instead I'll have to settle for not army building the 3 3/4-inch line, which is also too expensive and I can't find them en masse anyway so who cares? Get this figure if you can see it. The figure looks like a great post-Return of the Jedi design, despite being a pre-Star Wars design in some respects. It's more at home with the kind of things I like.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Walmart. The store had about a dozen one day and zero the next, which is the way of the Force I guess.
