  • SNOWTROOPER

    Insulated against: Temperature extremes
    But not against: Rebel blaster fire
    Almost capture: the Millennium Falcon
    Comments: Emerging like invisible ghosts from the tundra, few sights chill the hearts of Rebel soldiers like a charging battalion of Imperial Snowtrooeprs.








    LUKE SKYWALKER

    Captured by: A Wampa
    Leads: The snowspeeder assault
    Lucky he carries: An ascension gun
    Comments: Though he lacks little formal training in the Force, Luke's natural talent keeps him alive in the brutally cold wilds of Hoth. His strength helps him recuperate quickly enough to lead the snowspeeder counterattack against the oncoming strength of the Empire.






    HAN SOLO

    Determined to find: Luke Skywalker
    Vehicle: Millennium Falcon
    Pursued into : An asteroid field
    Comments: Though he is determined to return to Tatooine and finally settle up with Jabba the Hutt, Han Solo keeps getting pulled back in to the Rebellion. This time, it's Luke, missing in the freezing waste with night falling, and the Imperials on their way.







    CHEWBACCA

    Species: Wookiee
    Weapon: Bowcaster
    Hates: The cold
    Comments: Constant companion and co-pilot to Han Solo, Chewbacca is left to struggle with the repairs to the Millennium Falcon while Solo risks his life out on the tundra, searching for Luke.








    Points of Interest:
  • Snowtrooper is based on 2003's SAGA Snowtrooper (The Battle of Hoth) 03-19. This time around, the figure's been repainted and retooled to include a removable helmet.
  • Luke Skywalker is a repaint of 2004's SAGA Luke Skywalker (Hoth Attack) 04-03. This time around, there's no bloody face and the ice base is not included.
  • Han Solo is a repaint of 2003's SAGA Han Solo (Hoth Rescue) 03-12. This time around, the figure has been repainted and the sensor pack is not included.
  • Chewbacca is based on 2004's VOTC Chewbacca. This time around, the figure has been repainted and given a new head.

    Poll
    While it can be argued that both are important to many collectors, the Probe Droid wants to know, if given the choice, would you demand Hasbro brought back all the articulation or improve the paint applications.
    Great Paint applications are more important to me.
    I'm all about multiple poses, so I'd rather see all the articulation come back.
