This isn't a huge discovery like I found the hope diamond or anything, but it's good for those looking to diversify their portfolios of Hoth Rebels...

So we all know the VTSC Hoth Han Hat is a good replacement cap to make your troopers look a little spiffier and different.  I've also found that, if you feel the urge, adding cloth scarving to helmets isn't difficult either, fi you can find a good thin fabric for the scale.  Check out your local fabric store for scrabs of dark browns, greys, and such, in light knits. 

But, I've been testing some blasters in the holster, to see which fit and which don't.  The "standard rebel" pistol that Captain Antilles and others have come with works quite well right off the bat, and many Hothies are seen with it!  So keep that in mind when diversifying your troops.

Also, VOTC Han's blaster pistol, which I can't speak for all but I have a ton of these, fit well as well, and are a fairly generic looking gun.  The pistol the Trooper comes with already is actually similar (or identical) to Ponda Baba's from the Cantina, and is also commonly seen on Hoth...  It helps give the troops a more ragtag look too, with guys having a wide variety of sidearms.

Just food for thought if you found lots of the bearded troops, and want to spice them up a bit.

This is how lame I am. I boiled and froze a few figures to correct wide leg stances, including a couple of extra Needas I was planning to customize, and discovered for the first time that the hat is removable.

Just for fun...

I got some of the Keller figures that are being bundled into the Value 2-packs at WM (our WM's are getting deluged with these 2 packs for $7.50,w hich is great, and I've stocked up on Grievous' because you can't have too many big assed Grievious figures, plus 327th Star Corps are abundant).  Keller's "hood" bit fits over the Hoth Rebel's hat pretty perfectly...  Add some cloth wrapping (Keller's is a tad shiney for me) over it like a blanket and you've got some bundling up Rebels...  A few are seen with extra layers briefly.

It's another way to expand this figure as an army builder IMO, and Keller's (I think it's Keller, I forget Commander Clone names after a while unless they wer ein the movie specifically) become somewhat abundant again for some.

He looks pretty slick too though, with the hood on...  I haven't added the cloth yet like a blanket look though.  I have toyed with adding some cloth scarving to the helmets though.  I need to find a good limp fabric at the fabric store first I think.  Some gauzey like Hermi Odle's robes perhaps.  That'd be another pretty simple custom to add some diversity, if you didn't mind gluing a strip of cloth to the hat.

Yes, Faie...  Sorry.  Who the hell's Keller then?  He's the similar one from the comic pack?

Keller came in the WM exclusive comic pack with the Galactic Marine.  Sounds like a cool custom - got any pictures?  Probably moot as I have not seen the 2-packs at any of the WM's around Minneapolis.   :P

What was the final word on the clean-shaven Hoth Rebel Soldier?  He never came out right?

Is he still going to?

Nope - he never came out.

They have indicated that they hoped to get him out in a battle pack or some other similar type release.

Cool, thanks - I've been paying less attention lately and wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Yep, at Toy Fair they confirmed again that he'll be in a "collector-targeted" Battle Pack (the kind where all of the figures are new/different somehow).  Said they'd have more info on it at one of the Fall shows (SDCC/C5).

The Hoth Rebel will be in an exclusive battle pack that's set to be announced at Celebration 5.
