The thing is though, the AT-AT driver's suit is unique, but not really a snow suit... It's just a jumpsuit with a helmet and chest box like a pilot has. So is it "cold weather", or is it specific to the vehicle they drive since it's perhaps complex? The AT-ST driver's uniform is a lot more simplistic, possibly because the AT-ST doesn't require anything more than a standard army uniform to hop in and go.
My only gripe on the AT-ST driver is his height. He's pretty tall. I'm still perplexed why they'd sculpt a figure from the ground-up when the Scanner Tech gave them 80% of the parts they'd need.
1. Because tooling costs so much money, which is why the first vintage wave of 2011 is mostly repaint/rereleases.
2. Because they really wanted another imperial to be in scale with the 30th Anniversary Collection Death Star Trooper.
