I presume this guy below is Captain Rex from episode 15 - "Trespass" in snow gear



Who here would like Hasbro to make him into a figure?

Now that looks really cool. Count me in for one. I hope they make more variations like this down the line. It really brightens up everything for collectors.

Re: Captain Rex - Snow Gear

Saw a flash of those arctic clones in the preview of EP15 and was quite excited. But this one looks just weird, with the visor over the mask, instead of the other way around.

I absolutley agree with IncomT65, does look kinda strange. It looks like a white Darth Vader helmet.. I'd still get the figure in a heartbeat tho.

Like I said in the thread for the episode, I am really picking nods to the original Snow Trooper McQ. concept. I'd buy in a flash.

Looks cool, but I gotta ask. If the regular armor is up to the job of operations in space, then why do they need special artic armor?

Dude,there's like a million scientific facts that star wars ignores. I just don't see the point of pointing that out and letting The Force slide.

Re: Captain Rex - Snow Gear

I'm gonna take a stab at this...

I would imagine that Snow Clones are equipped to brave the freezing tempretures of Ice Worlds for extended periods of time, their 'scarves' could serve not only to keep the heat in but the snow out.

Where as Space Trooper's are never in the void for very long, obviously their suits must be able to moderate their tempreture, which would require a power source, which I imagine would be fine for brief space walks but not cost effective for the Republic when they are in the middle of a six month seige on Northpolia or whatever...

Different kind of outer space in Star Wars. even old McQuarrie concept art showed a hero with an exposed head and only goggles and a breathing apparatus to protect him from the vacuum of space. that's all you need. cover your holes!

Oh, right, people were trying to forget what I said about the Quarren Soldier...

How did you get that image, GNT? (rhetorical)

Everytime I click on to the main site, that image would pop up and before I could get a good look, it would switch to the 4 categories of the day header.

A few more months actually


Maybe the suits are more suitable for snow/ice planets we had Snowtroopers on Hoth is special suits that weren't found elsewhere so why not here? Either way the costume change means another figure Hasbro can release

I bet ya they don't. I'm sure they would of stuck Ki-Adi Mundi and Bacara in the trailer if they were in it. But it's all good, I know they'll get to them eventually.

So they can make more figures for us suckers to buy.

Mark me down for one.

Yes, because Bacara is the only commander who ever goes where the weather's cold, out of the entire Grand Army of the Republic. And sometimes Keller.

There's BARC Speeders in this episode. They'd better introduce Neyo, it'd be stupid not to.

I particularly enjoyed the lush tropical forest setting of that Rodian city when Commander Gree arrived to take custody of Nute Gunray. And the dense foliage of the brig made perfect cover for Gunray to clock Gree in the back of the head while Gree was paying attention to that traitor Argyus.

I hope Commander Cody and the 212th are only shown on Utapau from now on. They're Sinkhole Troopers, right?

I completely agree with you. There is a lot of confusion about the trooper/uniforms/environments. In some cases Hasbro can be blamed for this. Why do they call a trooper in Scout uniform and camo Barc Trooper? Also the galactic marines are not the special troop that only fights in cold environments. If the Marines would have fought on coruscant we would have seen them in standart Phase 2 clone trooper armor with wine red markings. It seems some fans just don't get it.

By the way: I love Captain Rex and I love the idea of seeing him in a cold weather uniform - but I think this design just sucks. Esspecially the helmet and the collar piece looks like a cheap halloween costume. Not a good design at all.

Re: Captain Rex - Snow Gear

i'd love to see the GM fighting in a non cold environment.

and Toon, I never said Bacara only fights in cold environments, i was trying to say this would be an opportune time to show him.

Why would it be an opportune time to show him? Ki-Adi-Mundi's not in the episode, is he? If not, then you ARE pigeonholing Bacara (and, by extension, his Marines) as a cold-environment clone by suggesting he show up, and my point is that it's ridiculous to limit them to something like that. I hope they appear in the series on some hot swampy world, just to jog people out of the idea that a 'snow-clone' episode is the best place to introduce them. They're Marines, not "Blizzard Force".

Aside from that, yeah, not digging the cold-weather gear. The suit, fine, and I like the concept-art-ish/Germanic helmet shell, but the hanging faceplate on top of a hood makes it look like those drugstore vinyl costumes I wore as a kid.
