The aotc helmet is made from a different material, it's not as soft as the other helmets, so hopefully that won't happen to that clone- it's a really great figure! I've noticed a lot of people don't like the removable helmets on clones or any troopers. I do like it though. Just think it adds to realism and just helps separate them from the 70/80's vintage & 90's figures that just look like toys. The better vintage figures coming out right now are amazing for collectors, and I think it adds variety to trooper displays if some can remove their helmets. But to each their own I guess. I just hope hasbro keeps making some troopers w/ removable helmets like the two new ones that are awesome! (aotc trooper & at-rt driver)
