Kerberos Protect Gear Panzer Cops may be cool but they got their origins from the German Stormtroopers of World War II. In fact, many movies had influences from the German war machine for inspiration - not for their brutality or cruelty but the German soldiers were the most well-dressed, well-equipped among all the WWII nations. One of the greatest influence the German army had on a movie was Star Wars. The Imperial Force of the Empire in Star Wars were inspired by WWII Germany, from the uniforms of the Imperial Leaders, officers and Death Star troopers to some of the weapons (laser rifles of the Sandtroopers as well as their ammo pouches).
The Imperial Stormtroopers are the crack troops of the Empire. From the first scene when the stormtroopers boarded Tantive IV when Star Wars first opened in 1977, they have become one of the coolest soldier ever.
23 years later in 2000, Marmit finally gave us the best proportioned 1/6 Stormtrooper (don't even get me started on the obese, bloated stormtroopers by Hasbro!!).

It came with instructions and although they are in Japanese, you could still make out the instructions through the clear graphics.
And here's the assembled Imperial Stormtrooper
