What surprised me the most was how the head was built. The body has a real neck for once, complete with the ribbed neck collar we've seen since the original movie. The figure eschews a round peg on top for a hole - the peg is inside the helmet this time! This changes up its ability to move and gives it a more realistic look. It may also future-proof the mold to look good when any hypothetical "Stormtrooper Disguise" figures come out later, but seeing how we just got Han I doubt it'll be for a while. Go ahead and get yourself at least one of these, just leave some for the rest of us.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
