I've seen many helmeted ones on my runs. Really good figure.

I think it's an improvement especially when you have them side by side.
I agree.monkeyboy said:ok so people have said that the AT-AT driver's in veers's walker did not have the red stripe on the back of the helmet, but after viewing ESB tonight on a whim i have to say i don't think this is the case. it seems like a continuity error, but the first time we see the drivers, they have no red stripes. every other shot though, including those in veers's walker, seem to feature red stripes.
Let's be clear here - the helmet dimensions on the '06 figure mightn't be entirely accurate, but they're certainly not mediocre.Darth_Brett said:I used to think the '06 figure was perfect, but after getting this new one the mediocre helmet sculpt on the '06 figure is pretty apparent.
No worries buddy, it's all good - hey, we're debating!Darth_Brett said:I know you like the '06 figure better VDG and I am not saying it's a bad figure at all. I hated the new figure when it was first unveiled at CC last summer, but it has since grown on me and now I am one of it's biggest proponents!
I agree! If you're going to make an OT figure, make it TRULY from the OT, not a retconned figure.Top_O_Nerae said:The thing that really ticks me off about the new AT-AT driver is the clone head lurking under the helmet.
Definitely. I love talking about stuff like this with fellow scummers like you in these forums!VintijDroidGutzz said:No worries buddy, it's all good - hey, we're debating!
Took the words right out of my mouth, Nate. Usually the removable helmet figures have a helmet that looks more realistically sized and appears to be slightly cumbersome on the figures neck/head post just like they are in real life.Nate_M said:I consider myself pretty much an Original Trilogy purist (don't even care for the vast majority of special edition "fixes"), but the clone head doesn't really bother me all that much. None of my troopers will ever be displayed with their helmets off, and removable helmet troops look more natural than troops that just have a helmet head on a ball joint. Case in point: the Rebel scout trooper from the Endor battle pack looks better with his helmet on than the VTSC Scout. The helmet is a bit bigger and looks more natural.

And, even in your photo, the neck is still visible, unlike in the movie.
