A Hoth Rebel Trooper is an infantry unit equipped with special gear who fought for the rebellion on the ice planet Hoth. These units are not specifically trained to work in snow, being regular Rebel troopers equipped with snow gear. They appear in the LEGO Classic Star Wars line.

Equipped with insulated clothes and cold-weather equipment for enduring sub-zero temperatures, these Rebel Troopers protect the Rebel Alliance’s hidden Echo Base on the ice planet Hoth.


Notes

  • Hoth rebel troopers are possibly just regular Rebel Troopers with snow gear, although it is possible that they are from the Wilderness fighters of the 4th Regiment, Alliance Special Forces.
  • Over the years they have slowly developed.
  • In the set 9509 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar the Hoth Rebel Trooper features the Hoth Officer's Head.
  • The bearded 2013 variant has the same face as Indiana Jones.
  • In Episode V, the men that portrayed the Hoth troopers were Norwegian Red Cross rescue skiers, and George Lucas made donations in return for their participation.
