The import has swivel shoulders, a rotating neck, and a swivel waist. It's light but sturdy, a figure that stands with no real problems and a blaster fused to his fist. Unlike the black/white blaster in the movie, this one is all black - basically classic Stormtrooper colors. The paint is pretty good, as the white plastic figure has a fair amount of black details. Most of the exposed body suit bits are decorated, but for some reason the back of the shoulder joints were not - and it's pretty obvious. The helmet could probably use a little more paint, but the product isn't bad as it is - you can see the corners they cut to keep the price relatively low. Of course, in the USA a figure of this size would be $6 or $7, and the 12-inch figure of similar quality would be $10. So that'd be the better buy.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Mexico via eBay. Wave 1 was international only so far (Australia, Mexico). It's hard to find these because not many come up for sale and there's no consistent branding/name for this particular scale. Good luck!
