I hope so too! Here is a comparison of the glamour shots of the regular Sith Trooper & the Jet Trooper. Is there much of a difference? Has Hasbro changed their paint apps? Difference in lighting?IF the figure actually has that high sheen enamel 'wet nail polish' look, then I'm into it.
The narrow visor make perfect sense for a snowtrooper - not for a flying trooper.First off I don't understand the fussing about the narrow visor? The FO Snow troopers had it and the Flametroopers as well. After taking place roughly 30 years after ROTJ doesn't anyone think that technology has advanced? The OT Stormtroopers already a tough time seeing out of the helmets and no wonder they couldn't hit anything.
These look a deeper red and would like to see Carbonized version as well.

In regards to advancement in tech. - I'm guessing you are talking about the narrow visor being a much larger HUD display inside the helmet?
That would make sense.
Sure, in every enrvironment with harsh/extreme lighting conditions you'd want a narrow visor like that.That's exactly what I'm saying. I'm sure the FO has spared no expense on technology for their troopers to become tenacious and advanced as they are.
Yes perfect sense for a Snowtrooper due to his weather environment, but the same could be said the the JetTrooper as well. If he is stationed in the desert and with blinding sun, this would be perfect. Correct?
The standard Stormtroopers have nice big eye-pieces in their helmets, though, and past precedent weighs on the side of jetpack troopers getting the same (or slightly modified versions) of the basic trooper helmets, all the way back to the Clone Wars.First off I don't understand the fussing about the narrow visor?

If FN's comments about FO Stormie helmets only filtering out smoke are any indication, technology has actually regressed, since OT and PT Trooper helmets could protect their wearers from a wide array of chemical and biological threats, as well as vacuum.After taking place roughly 30 years after ROTJ doesn't anyone think that technology has advanced?
Luke had a tough time seeing out of their helmets, because he wasn't trained to use one.The OT Stormtroopers already a tough time seeing out of the helmets...
...and no wonder they couldn't hit anything.
I think I'll wait until these guys go on Rose-level clearance and then head-canon them into Lumiya's gang:Well, all I can say after seeing the move is.......
Just realized this thread was for the SITH Jet Trooper. I was referring to the regular Jet Trooper...though my feelings are the same for both.This is one of the few figures I don't have. I keep seeing him...and passing on him. Does that make me a bad person? I like TROS just fine, but these guys just don't do anything for me for some reason.

I prefer the regular Jet Trooper and the Sith Trooper as compliments of each other. For some reason the jet pack just looks more distinct on the carbonized white.I know some people don't care for the design of the regular Jet Trooper and now the Sith Jet Trooper, but I have to say, these figures have great articulation! It suprised the heck out of me! I have regulars and the Carbonized versions and waiting on the Sith Versions to the shipped by Amazon!
