Appearances: The Empire Strikes Back
Bio: The Rebels defend their base on Hoth with every available weapon in their arsenal. They know they can't defeat the Imperial forces attacking them, but they need to delay them long enough to evacuate the base. Rebel troopers blast the enemy from laser towers that ring the base, and fire anti-vehicle cannons and medium repeating blasters at the Snowtroopers and AT-ST walkers. (Taken from the figure's packaging.)

Commentary: This Rebel Trooper was issued twice in two exclusive sets over the course of about three months-- that's unusual for a figure with exclusive deco. Modeled after the 2009 carded Legacy Collection Hoth Rebel Trooper, this version has a slightly lighter shade of brown for his facial hair. He's still super-articulated, and really a great addition to any army builder's collection. Actually the whole set is pretty slick, with troopers and droids plus a bunch of fun big hardware to add to your snow dioramas. The figure itself has a great sculpt with soft goods around the "skirt" region plus a working holster for his pistol, making it a pretty swell figure that really could have (and should have) been sold carded. I mean, I'm pretty sure both you and I would buy more of these.
It's one of Hasbro's finer Rebel figures as of late, so if you have the chance to get him in this or another exclusive pack I suggest that you do so. You won't be sorry!
Collector's Notes: This figure is pretty swell, if you like such things.
