Following the official reveal of the first wave of Hot Toys' Star Wars: The Force Awakens collectible figures, featuring the mysterious Kylo Ren and the First Order Stormtroopers, Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are thrilled to continue to bring fans more highly detailed collectibles based on the widely anticipated movie and present the new First Order Snowtrooper Star Wars collectible figures!
The latest generation of Snowtrooper 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 Star Wars figures are specially crafted based on the image of First Order Snowtroopers in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Each Snowtrooper features a newly designed Snowtrooper armor, helmet, and backpack. The standard First Order Snowtrooper is equipped with a blaster rifle with extended stock, while the First Order Snowtrooper Officer is armed with a blaster rifle with extended stock, a pair of articulated binoculars, and a red colored pauldron that indicates the rank of officer. Two additional blaster rifles are included exclusively in this collectible set!

In my opinion, the design of the First Order Snowtrooper is far more interesting a style and definitely more posable than the First Order Stormtrooper. The fabric bodysuit definitely makes it easier than trying to get the rubber bodysuit of the Stormtrooper to bend, but even the quality of the ankle joint is a major improvement. Granted, I've seen that joint stiffness varies figure to figure, however, I have the Stormtrooper and Heavy Gunner set, and while the design is excellent, both of them have soft, flexible feet that slip out of the ball joint very easily. I'm not a fan of using the included display bases in my presentation, but the Stormtrooper does have difficulty in pretty much anything beyond the basic museum pose because the ankle moves so easily under the weight of the figure. That's about all the rubber bodysuit allows anyway, but the limitation is frustrating because they are so cool looking and such an action oriented character. The Snowtrooper is far more satisfying to pose. These guys look awesome flanking either side of Kylo Ren. I'd definitely recommend the two pack set over choosing which single figure you want. Besides, the current promo of $100 off and free shipping is a great deal.
These guys are AWESOME! They really stand out in the cabinet. I have 4 other versions of stormtroopers in our Star Wars cabinet and these guys are always a conversation piece. My teenage son laughed when I told him I ordered them but when they arrived he couldn't keep his hands off of them- expressing admiration and apologized for his comments before they arrived. Pictures really don't do them justice. Great quality and attention to detail. Fantastic figures. Very High Quality and Highly Recommended for Star Wars Fans or for general collector fans. Thank you Hot Toys!
The First Order Snowtroopers are absolutely awesome! These guys were among the first additions to my Sideshow collection, and they definitely have an amazing presence up on the display shelf.
Excellent options for different poses, lots of equipment (4 blaster rifles), and two awesome troopers!
