Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle Gear)

The Rebel Soldier in Hoth Battle Gear was a great vintage army builder figure. He captured the look of the troops in the film perfectly. As a kid I often used him as Hoth Luke until I got the actual figure. There were so many Hoth Playsets, Creatures, and the Survival Gear weapon set with the Hoth Backpacks that gave kids lots of play value.

 It's a shame these Rebel Soldiers went out on patrol without their Bespin Blasters. I don't know how the Imperial Stormtroopers took them out because it doesn't look like they are carrying their rifles either. Maybe the Stormtroopers in Hoth Gear know judo.


  1. HAHA...I used him as Hoth Luke as well.

  2. I had a few of these along with Han and Luke as a kid.

  3. The Hoth inspired figures are the best. Too bad the Rebel figures came with the Bespin blaster, I would have liked a rifle with em like the Hoth Luke !
