Stormtroopers

First and foremost: THE RUBIES STORMTROOPER IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR 501ST MEMBERSHIP!!

While mostly similar, the stormtroopers did vary slightly from movie to movie (note that hardcore trooper fans will object to the “slightly” part of that statement). Here's a quick overview of what's different:

A New Hope

The frown on the helmet is grey, and the buttons on the ab plate are grey and blue.

Empire Strikes Back

The handplates are different (like the snowtroopers). The frown is black, but still sharp like the ANH style.

Return of the Jedi

The frown is black like ESB, but wider and rounded at the ends, rather than pointed. The ab plate buttons are black, and there is a white rubber edging material around the chestplate and codpiece.
