Comments: The vintage Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle Gear) action figure was Kenner’s very first Rebel army builder figure, and in a lot of ways he was the best of the bunch. With no less than four play environments as well as the Taun Taun and Hoth back packs –not to mention the winter outdoor factor-, this was certainly a figure in its own element. In other enviroments such as Tatooine, not so much.
Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle gear) figure has a couple of major variations worth mention. The first is in the standard version of the figure. This version is available with the legs moulded brown with white pants painted on, and moulded white with brown boots and holster/tunic bottom painted on. Neither version seems to be any more rare than the other.
