From the EE pics (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS85770B#LargeImage) it looks as were getting another Snowtrooper.

I dont think it look all that new but I think ill still get it when it arives because I only have 1 snowtrooper in my collection so far.

This was Hasbro's chance to release an awesome SA Snowtrooper with Vinyl skirt and Hasbro blew it (for 2006)

Instead we seem to be getting a retooled SAGA version with little articulation. I hope this is just a prototype and the release version will do these troops justice.

We brought this upon ourselves! Troops sell. They're probably throwing this one out there to increase the overall profit margin on the wave. If they're going to rehash to save money I'd rather see troops than unique characters.

Billy_Ray
10-18-2005, 12:14 PM
Well, not really...take a look at the legs. Notice the kneepads and boots? They are also positioned differently. Looks like a kitbash between the Saga and POTF2 more or less, but I suppose the legs could be all new.

It is a Saga torso, mostly, the arms are POTF2 and I believe the legs are as well, not so sure on that though. The arms stand out but overall a neat looking figure.

Yeah, to me it would have made more sence for Hasbro to re-release the old AT-AT Driver, and resculpt a really good snowtrooper. Then they could have just repainted it for a later wave as the Galatic Marine. I think they missed the boat on that one. Could have released and sold a TON of figures from just one great mold.

10-19-2005, 10:27 AM
I've seen Gree's BARC Troopers referred to as "Hostile Environment" troops. Kashyyyk was hostile, Hoth was *definitely* hostile, and ROTJ Biker Scouts are obviously derivative of BARCS.

Could a new Evolutions set be in the works? If Hasbro released a "Hostile Environment Trooper" Evolutions set with an SA BARC, Snowtrooper, and Biker Scout I'd buy five sets without blinking an eye.

Toonimator
10-19-2005, 11:39 AM
For one thing, the Kashyyyk troops aren't "BARCs", they're in Scout armor for jungle missions.

I think an SA Snowtrooper flanked by two near-identical troops that look nothing like him doesn't flow very well; better to have 3 distinct troops: Parjai Squadman from Utapau, Snowtrooper, and Scout Trooper. That's 3 distinct "special mission" armor types from 3 different films. It won't have people scratching their heads quite as much as looking at a scout, a snowtrooper, and another scout.

Later on they can retool the torso & boots & sculpt a new head for a 41st Elite Scout on a basic card. Then they can also swap the Snowtrooper's OT arms with Clonetrooper arms from ROTS #41, make a new backpack and they'll have a Galactic Marine http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

People keep saying that those Clones in the Scout Armor aren't BARC troopers, but I've never been able to figure out their source of the information aside from the fact that we see Neyo and some other clones riding BARCs on Saleucami. Were there any other sources? Even wikipedia seems to think the BARC troopers were the ones on Kashyyyk, though I'm aware that frequently it's wrong. I'm just curious.

What are you talking about $16!? If you get a 5 figure Hoth Battle Pack (which comes with 3 of them) for $19.99 you pay $4...or $6.66 if you toss the other 2...but of course thats just EVIL.

This is a thread to speak only about what will we do with the Snowtrooper.
I mean, I've been smashing my head thinking if I'll buy that re-pack or I'll wait until an unofficial announced VOTC-SA Snowtrooper. It's important, because most of us are going to buy five, ten or fifty Snowtroopers for an army.

Here's the basic info about the re-pack:

Head and body: SAGA'03
Arms and legs: POTF2
Skirt: SAGA'03

Well guys, what will you do?





i despise statue figures, i'm waiting for a VOTC snowtrooper.





I'll be getting one and one only. I feel that if we don't buy these it might be misinterpreted as a disinterest in the figure and we may never get what we really want.





I'll get one just because its different.

But I would like to see the Snow Trooper get some VOTC treatment.





I'll get one for my carded collection and that's it - NO openers! I'm holding out for VOTC Snowtroopers to open.







I'll be getting one and one only. I feel that if we don't buy these it might be misinterpreted as a disinterest in the figure and we may never get what we really want.



I will be getting 0 and only 0. I feel that if we buy these it might be misinterpreted as an interest by us and Hasbro will keep putting out crap and we may never get what we really want.





I'm with INDY.





I'm undecided, but I'll either pick up 1 or 0. I've got more Snowtroopers than I need as it is, especially after the Hoth Battlepack. Wish I'd saved the receipt for that disaster now that we know a good Veers is coming.





I have no Snowtroopers whatsoever, so I will pick this up-but if an SA version appears, I'll buy that too.





i will have to see how it looks, if it doesnt look better than the snowtrooper i have then ill pass.
i dont really care if its SA or not.





Stop asking for these damn VOTC figures!! $10 for a figure is absurd & anyone who pays it is retarded beyond believe. In case you people have forgotten somehow, they can add articulation w/o putting such a ridiculous price tag on them. I'm glad some of you are rich & can pay that, but most of us are not & shouldn't be left out because of it.

Now I agree, the statue figure days should be history. The Ep3 line has proven they can add articulation w/o charging a fortune. They can easily take the molds they have and add the articulation to them w/o a problem.





Well, I imagine if we hear any news about more ESB VOTC figures, it'll happen before these hit the shelves, and I'll make my decision then. But I'll probably be picking up one.





I will be passing on this one and let anyone else who wants to army build with an inferior kitbash all they can get. This kinda of sculpt really is too bad with all that we've seen that Hasbro can do. What really is goona get people upset about this sculpt(I hope) is when we see shots of the galactic marines. This is where Hasbro will again show what they can do with army builders





I will probably pick one up, just like I did with the saga one. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Hell no, I didn't buy them. Mainly because exclusives are stupid to buy unless you're collecting just to get rich later. None of those figures are even IN the movies so what's the point.

And $10 IS absurd for a single figure, especially when they've proven with the ep3 figures that SA doesn't really cost anything more to produce. Half of that $10 is probably for that clamshell anyway & has nothing to do with the SA. They're whole 'this isn't a movie year' excuse doesn't fly either. Anybody who doesn't think SA OT main characters & army builders won't fly off the shelves as soon as they're put out is seriously dillusional.

Look no farther than this first wave for proof. It won't be a coincidence that the UNarticulated Barada & Chewie pegwarm while the others sell. I'm not saying they needed to SA all the '06 figures but surefire sellers like main characters & army builders would've been nice.

I agree that the exclusives are a waiste of money based on the fact that they are not even in the movie but I have to say, the shadow trooper looks pretty cool. As for the $10 per VOTC figure, your missing out on great figures which hope to see on regular cards for your collecting pleasure. For what you get with VOTC, $10 is worth the quality IMO. Everyone knows SA army builders sell and so do other figures. ROTS proved that you can get SA with a $5 price. They also released some crappy figures also. I just hope they put out more SA figures done right and stop putting the same crap like this snowtrooper out eventhough the figure will sell based on the packaging. Thats probably why it will remain between $5-$7. Too much for a figure that looks like a rehash.

Regarding the snowtrooper: that's what I don't get with Hasbro. Why not in '06 start making great SA figures that they'll never have to make a new mold of again. I know they'll eventually get there but they shouldn't wait until 2020 to do it. That evo Vader is a great example. That figure never needs a new mold ever again & no other mold should be released. What do they do with the hoth wave: release an inferior version.

Regarding the snowtrooper: that's what I don't get with Hasbro. Why not in '06 start making great SA figures that they'll never have to make a new mold of again. I know they'll eventually get there but they shouldn't wait until 2020 to do it. That evo Vader is a great example. That figure never needs a new mold ever again & no other mold should be released. What do they do with the hoth wave: release an inferior version.




Its all about the price

at a bare minimum, they'd need to put Clone Commander #33-style arms on him before they can repaint him as a Marine. A new backpack would be good, too.

Out of all the figures from the Hoth wave that I bought today, I'm feeling this one the least...I like the way he looks carded and that's about it.

Wow! So it really has already come out there. Will have to wait for a few more days or weeks for this. I guess this figure isn't builder material.

I just opened one, and I have to admit, he's not bad, despite the POTF2 used. However, I'm still not army building with him, and the fact that he's an officer helps put me over the edge.

Nearly bought a couple of these..but didn't at the last minute,i already have a couple of the previous saga version (which IMO) is still better than this,why Hasbro used parts from the POTF2 version is a mystery to me http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

If the figure had been even slighly better and maybe had the officers insignia removed..i would have bought a couple more to start making a squad or so.

A Super Articulated brand new sculpt is REALLY whats needed for a figure like the Snowtrooper, and if that ever happens, an army builder i will become http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

This figure needs a new sa sculpt sure but as a basic figure, nothing more. And yes, when they do(and they will eventually), they need to release them in truck loads.

When they finally make a SA Snowtrooper, what material do you think the robe should be. That thin cloth they used for the Boba Fett cape seems like it might be nice. The material for all the Evolutions figures seems to be good for that type of thing. It seems like it might need to be Vinyl for the mask if they don't make it solid plastic. If they do It well that will be one of the best figures ever. They may be the coolest looking OT trooper. Sideshow should make one of these for 12" too since they haven't been touched by other 12" makers.

While I agree, it should be vinyl instead. The skirt pieces of the Snowtroopers are of a rubbery rain coat material, therefore it would be a more accurate material.

The Vintage version had a vinyl cape and it worked perfect.

I meant at the time the first VOTC were released. Only 1 specialty toy store carried the line. Toy sections in malls carried very little. Now that almost all leading toy stores have faith in the marketability of the star wars line, I reckon these would come in cheaper than the last time.

And who ever said that i can't afford this? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Just got my Snowtrooper today. I quite like it really, its about the best Snowtrooper done to date but its still not the SA version we've all been asking for. The POTF2 legs look quite good on the saga sculpt so hes more neturel than that crazy legs saga version, the arms look a tad whack though. Still this'll do until Hasbro gets around to making a nice SA version.

When I opened him I thought I had a error because his crotch is turned backwards, then I checked my saga version and he is normal and then my OTC version and he also has a backwards turned crotch. The Snowtrooper in RS photos also has this backwards crotch so I guess its normal. Still quite bizzare.

There's a color change on this figure already, both shipping as Saga #011.

Geez, so I finally got one of these Snowtroopers, and in my honest opinion, what a piece of plastic junk. It barely has any articulation, I mean minimal. I mean I guess it's good if you want to build a army of standing snowtroopers. It's a good thing I didn't pay for it. (A fellow collector friend of mine sent it to me with some software as a suprise.)

another thing... scale wise... is the hoth rebel solider (saga version) really short or a...hobit or something... compared to this snow trooper and veers and even the first saga snow trooper..hes tiny....

I can't imagine that the Snowtrooper wouldn't be in the next batch of VTSC. I'd say it's more likely than any other figure. Especially since the last batch didn't have any ESB figures and I imagine Hasbro will try to balance it a little if they can.

Okay, yesterday I was opening the beat-up UGH Snowtrooper I recently found, and compared it to the other 2 Saga2 Snowtroopers I have and found a startling variation!!

Please forgive the crappy pics, I only have a camera phone and it doesn't pick up small details well.

The variation is the color of the little painted dots on his torso. The original one I found from Hoth wave with blue holo, as well as the UGH one I opened yesterday, both have red and gray dots on the torso.

http://threads.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/Snowtrooper21.jpg

The other Snowtrooper I have came from the Tatooine cases, ya know the Snowtrooper with Red Holo. Anyway, it has red and blue dots on the torso.

http://threads.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/Snowtrooper11.jpg

Ya see what I am talkin' about? Not the rank emblem on the chest, but the little painted dots on the belly area. The Hoth/UGH versions have gray dots, the Tatooine wave repack version has blue dots.

Please, people check your Snowtroopers to verify this tiny variation!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

These guys served well for "background filler." (I think I picked up about 5 openers of these, including a derelict UGH one that was beaten to hell.)

I plan on at least 10-12 VTAC Snowies, but the squad will look more impressive with the more economical filler troops.
