This Hoth Rebel Trooper action figure was released in
2004 in the Star Wars SAGA series.
Hasbro gave the figure six joints and included
two accessories (backpack, blaster rifle).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- This Hoth Trooper was released individually carded
The figure's hat is not removable and the goggles are non-functional
The backpack plugs nicely into a hole in the back of the figure
The blaster inside the holster is part of the figure and can't be used by the figure
The blaster rifle fits overall OK into both hands
The rebel stands well without help from a stand
When this figure was released, it was criticized by fans for being much too short
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs
On the ice planet Hoth, the energy shield erected by the Rebels forced the Imperial Army to engage in a ground battle. The Rebel Soldiers dug into snowy trenches, blasting at the incoming Imperial Stormtroopers and the unstoppable Imperial walkers. When it became evident the base would fall to the enemy, the Hoth Troopers provided covering fire to give the Rebels time to evacuate personnel and equipment from the base. They fought fiercely, dedicated to the principal of freedom and willing to lay down their lives to win their objectives.
