Hot Toys has already released a Snowtrooper:

Snowtrooper - Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys


There was even a set (2-pack) released that came with accessories from Battlefront:

Snowtroopers - Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys
Thanks for the info.

I'm only seeing the First Order Stormtroopers on the site. I should have mentioned the shop owner was talking about an OT Snowtrooper. He said SSC put out a snowtrooper and a snowtrooper 2-pack, but this OT snowtrooper is from Hot Toys and it's new.

Here's the distributor's add for it:

Yeah, that's the same one I linked in my post.
He's correct that SSC produced a Snowtrooper and even a Snowtrooper Commander ... but I'm pretty sure they were never available in a 2-pack. Perhaps this is the first time the Hot Toys Snowtrooper has been made available in Europe, but the figure has been available elsewhere for quite some time and isn't "new".

Ok, thanks for the info. I have the SSC snowtrooper then. Was this HT snowtroper also in a 2-pack listed as the Battlefront Snowtroopers? I'm fairly certain those versions and the single version were available here as well, but maybe it wasn't.

The Snowtrooper being released is the Hot Toys version which was produced and released previously.

They have produced more and it's basically a 'restock' that is being offered to suppliers. Due Q4 apparently.

Sideshow did the same several times with some of their characters (Biker Scout, Yoda, R2 come to mind)

Yes, I'm certain the Snowtrooper and the 2-pack were released here because I had too many other things on order and had to skip them and this is a re-release of it.

Thanks, Neal and jediknight49 for the infos.

Where are the traditional Wednesday night “BEFORE” photo galleries of the HT and SSC exhibits? It’s great to see these individual pics, but I want to see everything!

Also, we’ve only seen pics of HT reveals. Is SSC not making 1:6 Star Wars anymore? Where are pics from the SSC display?

Has anything after prequel Yoda arrived in Hong Kong or gotten final release pics? Deluxe ROTJ Luke, Bespin Leia and Mudtrooper Han are still listed by Sideshow as Jul/Aug-Sep releases.

Just wondering which one is most likely coming next so I can start my next flex pay plan!

I keep hoping for an Enfys Nest, but I think at this point it's highly unlikely.

I haven't heard anything yet. For us the release date is September for Mudtrooper Han and October for Deluxe ROTJ Luke, but if you guys in the States haven't gotten them yet, then maybe we'll have to wait a bit longer.

Yep. Nothing past PT Yoda in HK. We might see a release this week or next week i suppose. Hard to tell as i'm not following other licences. There may be a Marvel release or two before we see the next Star Wars release.
