Brightblack Morning. (Ralph McQuarrie Concept Snowtrooper)

The Ralph McQuarrie tribute figures are all pretty hot. But a few like this Concept Snowtrooper and the Concept Boba Fett really stand out. It makes me wonder why the Empire Strikes Back production team rejected McQuarrie’s original Snowtrooper idea in the first place. The Snowtrooper costume design that they went with for the movie was OK — definitely not an improvement over this baddie. Maybe the Hokkaido Ski Instructor look that McQuarrie was leaning towards just didn’t scare enough?

Apologies to Brightblack Morning Light, the band with the coolest name.
