Compare this Storm Commando figure
This Storm Commando figure was released in March of 2010 - in The Legacy Collection's Walmart exclusive comic 2-pack. The set included this figure - and a General Weir figure. This type of the Storm Commando was featured in the comic book series "X-Wing: Rogue Leader".
The figure is super articulated with 14 joints - and there are no balancing problems whatsoever. Essentially - Hasbro used the same mold for this Storm Commando as they did for General Weir - except for the helmet. Unlike General Weir's helmet - this one is not removable - and unfortunately is also quite a bit smaller than Weir's. It's a little odd having both figures stand next to each other - with one of the figure's helmet being so much bigger. Especially when you consider that they are both supposed to be in the same unit - wearing essentially the same imperial armor. The two small Biker-Scout-type blasters are a good fit for the figure's right hand - but they don't fit into the left and keep falling out. But - just like on the General Weir figure - you can place one of the blasters into the holster located on the right boot.
The paint job on the Storm Commando is OK - but there is no weathering - and there are no other colors besides a glossy black on the armor - and silver on the helmet's visor. All in all - this Storm Commando is a decent - super articulated figure - which is also quite different in paint and mold from the previously released Walmart exclusive Storm Commando from 2009's evolution set. If you are a fan of the Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Leader comic book series - you might want to look into adding this figure to your collection.
General Weir launches a counter-rebellion after the Battle of Endor to undermine the Rebel Alliance. The Imperial general discovers that Luke Skywalker is in the city of Coronet and - with his stormtroopers and storm commandos - goes after the Rebel hero.
