I like Imperial Snowtroopers. Alot.
Especially now with the Battlefront hype. Oh yes.
I've got as many as 9 of the Lego minifig Snowies at this time, and I think that's enough for me and my MOC's for photographs and scene making. But here's the deal; I see that a new variation is out. Mine are the old ones, the latest ones from before, with the helmet stuck to the backpack in a single piece. Leg joint in new gray color, arms in white.
But these new ones, are they aesthetically worth it? It's a bit of a challenge to choose. In one hand, I seem to like the new helmet and skirt cloth piece. On the other, I particularly hate the cheap, brick-built backpack. At least they get a printed tile, yeah?
Not to mention I can only get one in the Rebel Snowspeeder set, and three in the AT-AT. Might just order them separately online.
But again, are they worth it? Where do you stand?
It's a bit annoying seeing as these ''updates'' come all too often. Once I saw those updated TIE pilots that came with the Microfighters, I had to damn all my old pilots to oblivion. Obsolete, now, in my eyes. Annoying and yet delicious because I can't help but fall for all those new sexy details.
