Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! Gentle Giant is proud to bring you their new line of vintage Kenner inspired Star Wars Action Figure reproductions with the release of the classic Imperial Soldier in Hoth Battle Gear figure.
Digitally scanned from mint 3 ¾” Kenner originals and reproduced at a Jumbo size, no detail has been overlooked. Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure includes a faithfully reproduced blaster and comes fully articulated!
With a commitment to keep in line with the vintage Kenner experience, Gentle Giant has packaged this figure with an Empire Strikes Back-inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork. Designed with the collector in mind, the figure comes in a resealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this limited edition figure.
Snowtroopers are a large constituent of the attack force launched by the Empire against the Rebel installation of Hoth. Designed to withstand frozen wastes such as the planet of Hoth, Snowtrooper armor is outfitted with heightened heating and personal environment units and an airtight fabric over-suit. The breather hood contains the faceplate and feeds into the suit liner. Snowtroopers are equipped with a more expansive utility belt which includes grappling hooks, ration packs, spare ammunition, ion flares, and a survival kit. Clad in their specialized armor, Snowtroopers accompany Darth Vader as the latter stalks through the ice-hewn corridors of the Rebel base. Unfortunately, by the time the Imperials arrive the facility is nearly empty, all key personnel having been evacuated prior to Vader’s arrival, a fact primarily attributed to the fumbling arrival of the recently deceased Admiral Ozzel.
