Point of Interest[edit]

Though the image on every Stormtrooper card back is from the same photo, the Tri-logo version has been touched up to remove the second Stormtrooper in the background. The figure was renamed Imperial Stormtrooper on The Power Of The Force card back. This figure first appeared on the Star Wars 12 back card.


Major Variations[edit]

Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the only major variation is the hard to come by Japanese Takara version, which, though in a similar stance, is an entirely different sculpt. It is easiest to spot by looking at the head. Also of interest with the Takara version, is the bolt on the figure's back, not unlike any See-Threepio (C-3PO) or Death Star Droid figures.
