There’s no trooper like a Snowtrooper

Snowtrooper (4)

I’ve always questioned the use of certain specialised Stormtrooper divisions in the Galactic Empire. You’ve got your regular Stormtroopers, Captains, commanders and other chains of command. Then you’ve got Black Hole Stormtroopers, Sandtroopers, Skytroopers, Swamptroopers and of course…Snowtroopers.

Out of all the Stormtrooper squads out there, the ability to not whinge when it’s cold isn’t nearly as impressive as it sounds. Still, they’ve got some bitchin’ armour, that really looks fab at one-sixth scale. Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t even out yet, and there’s already a slew of merchandise waiting to be bought.

So in addition to the recently unveiled First Order Stormtrooper, comes a new variant of the Bloemfontein Winter division.Here’s the deets, from Sideshow Collectibles:

Following the official introduction of the first wave of Hot Toys’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens collectible figures, featuring the enigmatic Kylo Ren and the First Order Stormtroopers, Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are excited to unveil the highly detailed First Order Snowtrooper sixth scale collectible figure!

The latest generation of cold weather assault Snowtroopers is equipped with completely redesigned advanced insulated armor and helmets that can reduce the glare of icy terrain when carrying out the First Order’s missions in extreme climates.

The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of a First Order Snowtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and features the freshly designed Snowtrooper helmet and armor, a finely sculpted backpack, meticulously tailored coat and under-suit, detailed blaster rifle with extended stock, and a specially designed hexagonal figure stand with the First Order’s emblem!
