I received my final Shock Trooper today in a bubble envelope, in which it looks like someone decided to place it on the ground and step on it. I'm planning on just returning it, but I first thought I'd see if anyone wants an opener for cost. Click on attached images for full size pics.

I managed to get 3 of these. All of them have the issue where the chin is showing under the helmet. They glued it bad.

Here's a before:

You can see his chin on the bottom

After:

his chin is not visible as it's completely in the helmet now.

Here's the unhelmeted head:

All the glue is on the right side of his head above the ear. It was actually the easiest helmet removal I've done so far. All 3 had the identical location of glue.

After shot:

No chin visible.

Group shots after separating the helmet and putting it back on straight.

Because I moved away from the Black Series and Star Wars collecting in general, for nearly a year now; I am just now, literally today, learning this figure exists. Since I'm suddenly all over Shock Troopers for some reason; I really wanna find one of these guys.

^ I'd call CS if I were you. The original allotment of these have long since shipped and there's even been a few scattered restocks since. I'm not sure if they'll be getting anymore or not. Could be like the previous year's TCW wave that would randomly show up through the following May.

I just found one of these guys in Walmart Clearance for $4.67....I was shocked (hehe).

Box was a bit rough...possibly returned due to damaged box during shipping?

Needless to say...I grabbed it.

Credit @mfct_news & @theasiantrooper. For those wondering the Imperial Clone Shocktrooper is #07 from TBB sub-line. The red they used doesn't look like it matches the original Shocktroopers, and the belt is really off-color as well.

I feel lucky to have found this guy, but something really looked off to me...so much I wondered if it was a swap-job for a moment, but I couldn't place what was off.

Now I see...where the heck is the black "eyebrow" Hasbro? Figure would be so much nicer, and that's such a small amount of paint to leave off.
(Yet personally I'd never be able to paint that line crisp enough to be happy with it).

With that, and the horrible belt color, Hasbro is really getting cheap...(and I generally go pretty easy on them since "The Wars" license is pricy).

I am still grateful to have found him, just irritated they left off such a small detail that would have added so much.

Isn't the very first release technically an Ep. III figure while this newest release is Bad Batch? Is that the reason for the black stripe being on the helmet or not?
