Image Bank: VC41 Stormtrooper

By Mike — Monday, February 7, 2011

This Stormtrooper, while recycling some parts from 2007's 30th Anniversary Collection version (head) and 2009's Sandtrooper packed in with the Walmart Dewback (body) is a pretty good effort. It  suffers from loose helmet syndrome and the cardback wrongly depicts its first issue on an Empire Strikes Back card, but you can do far worse for $9 to $10 bucks. It will be interesting to see how this figure sells next to the lingering Vintage Sandtrooper.

Great review have been reading them for a while. One thing however srikes me as an error. I think that Hasbro is stating that the empire strikes back card was released 1980-1982. I bring this up because the vintage collection stormtrooper on the return of the jedi card states release in 1983-1984. Hears hoping a starwars card release.

Thanks and you make a good

Thanks and you make a good point. I guess the addition of "Original" on the VC cardback can be interpreted a couple of ways.
