That Snow Trooper is Awesome, simply a work of art!

Clearly an inspiration for the TCW design.

I was not expecting that! As a big fan of the concept line I would never have even hoped for something so cool.

Re: Snowtrooper (Johnston Concept) - ESB Wave

Never thought we'd see this so soon since McQuarrie's came out.
So since we were promised 4 concept figures this year and Hasbro stated in a Q&A that one will be a McQuarrie concept, that would make it 5 concept figures!

Concept Anakin (Sang Jun Lee)
Concept Ki-Adi Mundi (Derek Thompson)
Concept Plo Koon (Derek Thompson)
Concept Snowtrooper (Joe Johnston)
Concept ???? (McQuarrie)

Love the detail on that design, from the helmet all the way down to the crampons on the boots.

This or the Q&A guy from Hasbro didn't know much about Star Wars concept artists

I wonder if this design is where they got the helmet inspiration for Durge. They look similar.

Yes, definitely your bottom picture, Silence! Thanks for posting.
I've always wanted to make the trooper two pics above that, but I never worked with wax and that'd be the way to go for that type of detail!

I believe that the Plo Koon is not a concept. Just a "removable mask" version.

Ok I now have a commander (or will have when I get him) for the McQuarrie Snowtroopers.

Correct. Plo is not a concept figure.

I'm loving this snowtrooper. I can't wait to add him to my concept art figure display. Home run here Hasbro. Please keep the concept figures coming.

The figure has that samurai/shogun look and that's awesome. Definitely buying two.

Re: Snowtrooper (Johnston Concept) - ESB Wave

This is my 3rd favorite of the concept figures from this year. I don't care much for it but at least it's better than the Anakin figure.

Interesting. I hope Hasbro doesn't go overboard with the conept figures because there are a lot of film and EU figures yet to be made I'd rather see first. This guy looks great though, but I'm not yet decided on more concepts.

Great figure. Will be getting him carded. Now all Hasbro has to do is give us Anakin on the new card and we will all be happy!
