This is basically the single, white trooper with added deco - you get the two blasters (which the Black Series one lacks), plus a newly tooled axe. This one has an unpainted grip but a removable energy piece - I'm kind of surprised. Hasbro tools up a lot of similar items these days, so it's kind of nice to see some variety in accessories. I'm really happy to see so many weapons in this pack, mostly because it needed some "oomph" for the price. $15 in figures and a $20ish electronic Force Link band can always benefit from a little something extra - and painted blasters are a nice addition. They can plug in the figure's thigh or the hands, which is basically all you can ask for from one of these guys.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Toys R Us.
