After my action figure review of the Bandai 1/6th scale Star Wars Stormtrooper Model Kit (posted HERE and HERE), I had requests for comparison pictures between the Bandai Stormtrooper and Hot Toys Stormtrooper. So here goes.
The pictures posted above and below shows the Hot Toys Hot Toys MMS267 "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" 1/6th scale Stormtrooper 12-inch Figure (reviewed earlier HERE and HERE) standing in the centre and flanked on the left and right by Bandai 1/6th scale Star Wars Stormtroopers assembled as part of a model kit. Bandai's Stormtroopers are slightly taller. Their helmet and body armor are also whiter and shinier compared to the Hot Toys version. Since Bandai Stormtroopers do not have an actual 12-inch body wearing skin tight and restrictive body suits, they have much more articulation and pose-ability. Because of the lower price, you can get two Bandai stormtroopers for less than one Hot Toys Stormtrooper.
Scroll down to the rest of the pictures.

Check out the turnaround views and side-by-side comparisons between the Hot Toys MMS267 "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" 1/6th scale Stormtrooper 12-inch Figure and Bandai 1/6th scale Star Wars Stormtrooper Model Kit posted below. The model kit is very easy to put together as the illustrated instructions are very clear (even though it's all in Japanese) and I get to add two more troopers to my 12-inch Imperial army. In the side by side comparison pictures, Hot Toys stormtrooper is on the left and the Bandai Stormtrooper model kit is on the right.
