A new snowtrooper? Sign me up! There is a regular snowtrooper coming up, but first Toys R Us has an exclusive snowtrooper officer. I think the main difference is the sandtrooper style shoulder pauldron. There was apparently an action sequence that got cut from the final movie that would have features snowtroopers prominently, but as it is there are barely any snowtroopers onscreen during The Force Awakens. Fortunately, that's enough to get figures out of them. I quite like the new design, especially the weird almost insect-like helmet. The snowtrooper has a detachable backpack and a blaster that looks like the new style E-11 with a longer stock.
