    I know they are planning on these, but I really would prefer one from ANH and was not expecting them to be so hard to come by, like they are

    There are many more differences. Some out of my head now, with stress at work: helmet - symmetrical, ears buttons are different, indentations instead of decals on tubes, armor - different ab buttons/square, different armor assembly and strapping etc.etc.

    I said the tube things. So strap on side and tubes. Ears look the same.

    The ear bars/gray area there is different too.

    The new Stormies are a good option for people who missed ANH figures, and do not really care about R1 vs OT differences, and thus not want to pay after market prices for ANH, and for collectors who want R1 Stormies, knowing they are different from OT ones, and thus being completists.

    Yup. That area was what got my attention the most...

    I'm just thinking how clever the 'owners' are to do minor tweaks to a classic Stormie,
    just enough to target the types of collectors you mentioned above... milking it the right way I suppose....

    I don't think it's milking it. They were trying to make it more comfortable and less clunky for the actors, and we're living in a world of 4K television so they were trying to make the details a bit sharper. It would have been a lot of work to make them as wonky as the originals. And the originals have so much variation that if you pick just one look then it might not look right either. This movie is going to do some things right and some things wrong--this to me seemed to be more about pragmatism. All the new troopers are more about milking fans love of troopers in my view.

    They could have easily brought back the scout trooper and used an AT-AT driver for the tanks for variation, but instead we have 3 brand new troops.
