I'd have to say probably HOSS! WHOOOOOOOO!  Can't WAIT!
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

I'm curious if they will add a generic head under the shroud or just a connector ball. Or maybe make a helmet like McQuarrie version (with details under the shroud)

what a frustrating ordeal? servers were down for over 1hr?
Why do a preorder if no one is in customer support to help, if there is a problem?

I don't mind the mask is made of solid plastic instead of vinyl, just imagine what could happen to a low quality thin vinyl sheet over years. The original ILM Snowtrooper vinyl shroud looks ok after these years but it is much thicker than it would be in 1:6 scale. Plus to have a vinyl sheet in 1:6 you need a good quality material and to be a head under it to hold it = price up.

Wish though the eyes were bigger and to have some kind of an option in designing the helmet's shroud not to be identical on all troops if you have more than one on display. I ordered my regular at Razor's and thinking of the E-web Cannon but I simply don't see $150 there. $150 is half of a good quality 1:1 helmet, not a 1:6 plastic toy. Will think about this longer

Ordered my Snowtrooper too. Just one and no cannon. Seeing the comparison between the amazing old Marmit and the inaccurate SS Stormtrooper really opened my eyes.

The Sideshow Snowtrooper arrived. A nice figure but it came with its cod piece almost completely unattached, so I had to fix it. I don't like the way the back pack attaches, pretty stupid. But overall the figure is cool, reasonably accurate (the squinting eyes are still the most striking problem) and the body is better than previous OT troopers. I like the weathering, really great. Overall 8.5/10
