Now I know why the Magna Guard looks dumb
The skirt thing goes above the torso armor, and the torso shell thats suppose to be the torso armor has barely any texture shape as with the Movie version. The movie version has no belt texture, its layer plate armor that doesnt narrow in the same way as the stormtrooper armor and its variants.
His helmet looks cooler in the movie version from three simple reasons. the head part is more narrow, and the upper head part is longer, and the chin part has a nicer angle similar to what you would see on the First Order troopers helmets.
If they were going to make a new shell add on, why not also make a new one for the lower parts of the arm? placing printing for something that is clearly suppose to be three-dimensional makes it look cheap.
Im bashing this set cause I really want it to be amazing, and its just not kutting it. I prefer the movie version because its has layered plate armor, torso armor over skirt, and a nicer proportioned helmet. The lego version just looks off. It felt like that even before I saw the movie version, having seen it now, it just cements the feeling even more.
The torso shell only works if you have a stormtrooper /clonetrooper armor type of a figure, otherwise it just does not work for figures who are suppose to have differently shaped torsos.
PS: I would have prefered these dudes helmets more due to it being a more simplistic variation thats able to be used even outside of the line.
The one with the sword just looks boss.
