I just picked this one up (i know im slow) and i was wondering, is the helmet supposed to be glued to the head? in the picture archive its removable but on mine its glued down. I know several other people have experienced this. whats the deal?

Its molded to his head. From what I understand, it was initially planned to have a removeable helmet, but it got scratched.

Yep, it's molded to his head. I love the figure though. There needs to be another one with a new headsculpt.

Why do you need it to come off anyways? It's not like any of the troops walked around with it off, or holding it.

Very true, there would be no need for a removable helmet.

A removeable helmet is a nice feature. The Endor Rebel Soldiers never removed their helmets either. It makes it easy to customize as well.

Leia and Luke removed theirs though, so it was removed at some point, just not by a trooper. ;)

The Naboo Royal Guards however never removed their helmets, and neither did the Death Star Troopers or Bespin Guards. I'm guessing they dropped the removeable helmet on the Rebel Trooper because it was hard to keep it secured on there.

...plus you had that painted onto the face chin-strap thingy!

Yep, I think a LOT of us complained about that before it was released.

BTW, I DID remove the helmet from my first Rebel Trooper.:eek:

I glued it back on a couple of months later.:D

Anyway, it is an outstanding figure, and one of Hasbro's better attempts at improving figures. They took a hint from a certain OTHER 4 inch action figure line.;)
