Re: Snowtrooper

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.

Re: Snowtrooper

I wish they gave this figure more articulation. It's a welcome rehash, though.

Unfortunately it looks like this is what we are getting... if only they had tried as hard with this figure as they have with the AT-AT driver.

Re: Snowtrooper

I'll be passing on this. Hasbro has never done a decent Snowtrooper and I guess they never will.


I just don't understand why he can't be white! I don't remember any tan or blue Snowtroopers on screen...

Re: Snowtrooper

I was really anxious for this figure. I have to admit I am a bit disappointed and am hoping we are just looking at a prototype, no the final version. An SA version would be bought in great numbers by myself

Re: Snowtrooper

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.

Re: Snowtrooper

Not a bad figure, but I don't need anymore Snow Troopers for now...unless of course this one does have a bit of repainting done, then I'll need to buy one


If not, if its just a straight repack of the Saga/OTC version with no new paint scheme or alterations, I'll probably pass....unless it looks fantastic carded, which it very well may. Even being an opener I'm a sucker for the OTC/Saga Collection cards

Re: Snowtrooper

I'm not a huge fan of this figure. I don't like that his neck is craned upwards like that. I might get it, depends on how I feel when I see it.

Re: Snowtrooper

It's clearly just a repack of the Saga Snowtrooper.
I suppose that's okay, but I really had my heart set on something that I could army-build with. This isn't it.

Re: Snowtrooper

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.

Re: Snowtrooper

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.

It does not look bad, but I really had my heart on one with better articulation so I hope my disapointment is over by the time it hits the shelves.

Those look like the POTF2 deluxe legs to me.

Re: Snowtrooper #11

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.

Re: Snowtrooper #11

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.

Re: Snowtrooper #11

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

Re: Snowtrooper #11

How about just an OT Evolutions set with VOTC Stormtrooper, SA Snowtrooper and SA Biker Scout? I shudder at how many I'd want to buy.

I've got about 12 or so of the SAGA/OTC ones. Guess I'll try and double my army of them.

Yeah, that'd be good too
Probably better; I just REALLY want 'em to serve up a Parjai Squad member next year.

If it ends up being the crap in the picture, then this one is a NO.

It is the saga snowtroopers body and head, combined with the potf2 legs and arms. Hopefully they will turn this around into something spectacular.

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.

Nice I can build my Snowtrooper army a little more. I'm up to 6.
