    Galactic Marine vs. Snowtrooper: repaint or not? Comparison pics!

    I made this comparison picture of the Galactic Marine vs. the OTC Snowtrooper. Perhaps a '97 Snowtrooper comparison might also be helpful?

    However, as far as I can tell, the Galactic Marine is an all-new figure! Yaaaay!

    What do you think?

    Completely new, not even remotely in question, none of the parts - especially the face-skirt (the larger-sized photo shows that it's cut out around the sides too) - share any hint of being previously used for Snowtrooper molds.

    What your comparison best shows I think is how miserably underwhelming Hasbro's Snowtrooper figures are.

    JT: on the sculpt I'll agree with you - for the most part the Galactic Marine is superior, though I like the Snowtrooper's face mask better. I posted a movie image so everyone can judge the authenticity for themselves.

    On the color and style, I love those snowtroopers!

    I'm going to add about 4 of these Marines with Bacara to cut down Ki-Adi Mundi in the scene I'm doing - similar to the one from the film I just posted, but probably $18 cheaper

    Yeah, definitely a brand new sculpt. I myself was quite worried that'd try and fob off a mere repaint of the Snowtrooper but I'm pleasantly surprised.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    The only possible way there is any reuse in the Galactic Marine is if they melted down unsold snowtroopers and reused the plastic.

    This is the figure that I am most excited about getting next year. I voted for this one in the last fans choice figure poll(yeah, I know. I wasted my vote). From the look of the pics, its pretty much perfect. I'm gonna buy whatever I can get my hands on.

    I'm planning about 1-2 dozen of these, depending on availability and my finanaces in the coming months.
    Move along, move along
