Hasbro measured/scanned the original figure and captured all the details (and lack thereof) in this figure, right down to the size of the peg holes in the bottom of the feet
There are some differences however, for example this new version of the Stormtrooper has updated copyright markings on the back of both legs (Hasbro instead of Kenner and several part and production numbers)
The details on this Stormtrooper are more pronounced than on the 1978 version, the eyes are smaller and the black tears coming down on both sides are longer
The Stormtrooper blaster looks just like a black original blaster, we can't find any differences between this and the original one
Unfortunately the Stormtrooper can't hold the blaster well and it keeps falling out of his right hand (this wasn't an issue with the original Stormtrooper figure)
When we tried to place the blaster into the Stormtrooper's right hand for the first time the paint chipped off right away, so be gentle!
The packaging was weathered on the outside on purpose to differentiate the Star Wars Retro Collection from the original Kenner figures
The red Retro Collection sticker can be taken off (you will need to use a hair dryer), but we don't recommend that you do that, because there is a very high possibility that you will damage the card (the sticker is very tough to get off)
The Stormtrooper has no balancing issues
All in all, this Retro Collection Stormtrooper turned out great, but unfortunately our figure can't hold the included blaster well
