Just wanted to head off any argument that might start on these forums regarding the Snowtrooper we are getting. Rebelscum's forums have been hot with complaints about him. So after finding info, I wanted to make sure it was seen. Sorry for the new thread, but it does address a seperate issue then just the figures being up and praise/complaints about them.
As many of you know, back when we were discussing what we hoped we would be seeing I mentioned the chance that it could be the SnowTrooper: Infanty Officer that appears in the head of the AT-AT. That is the one that we're getting, but I noticed on other forums that people were complaining about his holster and lack of beltpouches on his belt. Well, someone over in GH's forums attached a bigger picture of the Infantry Officer.
The picture appears to be from that big Star Wars Chronicles book that came out a few years ago. The picture clearly shows other differences, beyond the better made mask and insignia. That this version of the SnowTrooper doesn't have belt pounces and has a holster. Which means there is a good chance that he could also not be wearing the kneepads and boots seen on the basic Troopers. Which makes this new SnowTrooper, highly movie accurate.
