If you have the time and

If you have the time and ability to get one, I suggest the Bandai Stormtrooper model kit. It is incredible. The sculpt looks the best out of those for, the plastic is glossy, it's perfectly in scale with the Star Wars Black figures and it does one thing that none of those figures do, gets the green eye lenses right. The only place where there is a noticeable seam line (e.g. you're looking at a model kit and not an action figure) is the back of the helmet.

I have meant to pick one up, but every photo I've seen of the built kit makes it look like the neck is way too short. Still, they are cheap enough that I should grab one. The glossy armor sounds great.

Ill second the model kit. Its got fantastic articulation and if you have gunpla skills you can mod the neck to be a little longer.

I will say that the helmet

I will say that the helmet sits right on top of the shoulders, but there's plenty room to move it back and forth and side to side. I don't think some people realize how large those helmets are in proportion to the rest of the body. For most troopers, there isn't a lot of clearance between the bottom of the helmet and the top of the shoulder/chest armor. Check out the two short guys on the front row and all the guys in the back row. I've just put all of these guys up against screenshots, and the Bandai kit nails the look the best IMO.
