Sideshow Collectibles has some new STAR WARS items up for pre-order!

Every year, Sideshow Collectibles runs their Online Comic-Con during the same month as SDCC. This year they have announced the release of 2 new 1/6 scale figure: their branded Snowtrooper Commander from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and Luke Skywalker from RETURN OF THE JEDI (ROTJ) by Hot Toys. We will break them down individually to see what these awesome figures come with.
______________________________________________________________________________________________

One of the coolest scenes in the film THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK is the battle of Hoth (see what I did there). With that we got to see new characters, weapons, vehicles and, of course, Snowtroopers. These are stormtroopers in extreme cold protection armor and they look intimidating. Sideshow Collectibles is releasing a new 1/6 scale version of the Snowtrooper Commander. He has the weathering and details that are key to a figure like this. He comes with 3 amores gauntlets and 3 weapons including a rifle, a pistol, and a thermal detonator. He also comes with a base stand for displaying the figure on your shelf. He releases around January-March 2018 and costs $209 USD w/ $21 USD deposit before the taxes and shipping chargers.
