Had to build these after seeing them in Jedi Fallen Order. All purist, largely a snow trooper with a different setup for the head. This uses an Imperial combat driver head (the white version) with a white Imperial officer helmet.

Shout-outs to Books and Other Found Things in Leesburg, Virginia and Fuzzy Dog Books and Music in Charles Town, West Virginia. Might I add that Fuzzy Dog had possibly the best organized Star Wars section I’ve ever seen, with every arc/series grouped together. It wasn’t in chronological order, but at least some order helps when you’re hunting down bits and pieces of larger series!
