Although Sideshow used Hot Toys bodies for Stormtroopers, the joints are still “very loose”. The figure cannot stand by itself and it needs the display stand to support. The white armour is made of hard plastic and surface of it is not glossy. The material used for the black inner suit is the type that Hot Toys used for making socks. The armours fit well to the figure. You can remove the helmet if you want to change it to Luke or Han Solo head. There is an extra pair of hands that can be changed easily. No issue to place the blaster gun in the holster. I was wondering why Sideshow only made the shoes dirty but not to the rest of the body. Anyway, the figure still looks good and it costs only half the price as compared to the Medicom version (Toy Rating: 6.5/10).
