    Comments: As the battle for freedom took to the frozen planet of Hoth, Rebel Alliance forces transformed the Incom T-47 airspeeder to a snowspeeder. They achieved this by equipping it with coated, angled, heavy armor plating, placing dust covers over intake and exhaust ports and adding insulation to handle the extreme temperatures.

    Manned by a crew of two, a forward-facing pilot and rear-facing gunner, the snowspeeder's firepower consists of twin laser cannons mounted on the front fuselage and a rear-mounted harpoon cannon with tow cable.

    The snowspeeder's harpoon was the only weapon that was successful in the fight against the fearsome Imperial AT-AT vehicles. The harpoon was fired at the legs of the walker, entangling them and toppling the vehicle, rendering it useless.

    Point of Interest: This version of the Rebel Snowspeeder is similar to the vintage vehicle, with additional engine sculpted detailing on the right side.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
