    Hello all! I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge on how to get the "real" 31" storm trooper, if it's even made? I have the 31" shock trooper, and have seen in amazon and other stores such as wally world, a standard storm trooper. The problem is I have read reviews from some people who have boughten the 31" storm troopoer (movie version) only to find out they received the rebels version- which apparently has a head that is either too small or big, I forget which. Another thing mentioned in the reviews is the fact that the picture on the box shows the movie styled trooper, but the figure packaged in that box, is the rebels version.
    Is there any place that people may know of, that sells the true ST? Or maybe a better question - how can I know which one I'm ordering?
    Trying to find one in a physical store, I feel, would be nearly impossible.

    After some more research, I think I've found the 2 different ones, at least at Walmart anyway. Not only is there a price difference (the real one being lower), but based on scrutinizing of the heads in the photos, as well as the reviews of one of them, I think I can safely determine which one is the preferred one. This is the one with the "rebels" head is Walmart #: 553063334. Customer reviews of this confirm it is the head of the Rebels animated series. People also complain that the head is proportionally too small for the body.
    This one may be the right one, as far as I can tell: Walmart #: 552974440. There are no reviews, but it does have a different part # than the "rebels" one, which is a good clue these are in fact two different 31" storm troopers. The photos of the figure (if you can believe the photos are consistent with the product) also make me believe this is the right one!

    Should have posted this sooner, but I did end up getting the correct storm trooper. Looks great, the only "slight" complaint (not really a big deal) is the head has less gloss than the body, other than that- looks awesome!
