Hot on the heels of their SOLO- ASWS version of Han Solo, Hot Toys revealed a new version of the titular character, this time dressed in his (not a fan of this name) “Mudtrooper” outfit. SPOILER: We find out in SOLO about Solo’s short-lived military career as a corporal in the Imperial Armored Division. Mudtroopers are lightly armored soldiers with respiratory gear and sealed bodysuits for deployment into unhealthy environments.
Admittedly, it’s a cool design – even though I think they’re stretching the number of new troopers unseen in the original trilogy to the max. No doubt this will be a popular figure to be displayed as either Solo or an unknown grunt. From the promo shots, it looks like we’ll eventually be getting a regular or Officer Mudtrooper figure as well as the Mimban Trooper.
He comes equipped with the full Mudtrooper outfit; helmet, chest plate, lower leg, and shoulder armor, respiratory mask, a weathered, tarp-like cape and hood, blaster rifle and stand.
No word on price yet, but watch your favorite reseller for details soon!
Trevor is a New York-based Creative Director and business owner. He has a growing collection of 200ish 1:6th scale stock and custom figures (and more and more Lego sets and Mezcos). Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and – in his mind – justifies the stupid money he spends on these things. When he’s not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building dios.
