Tri-Logo / PBP Snowtrooper Skirt Question

Post by Snaketibe »

I'm hoping someone on the forum may be able to help me out with this one. I recently acquired a lovely white double-scar Snowtrooper figure (minus skirt), which I believe to be a Tri-Logo / PBP / European issue. I believe there are several different scar versions available, so maybe mine is specific to PBP or Tri-logo, but I think (much like many figures like the PBP and Tri-Logo Boba Fett variants), they were available in multiple European markets and on various cardbacks. But that's not my question! :-D

Since the 1990's I have owned a round-hole Snowtrooper skirt, but I never had the correct figure to put it with until now. The skirt has been stored away, and hence I had completely forgotten how unusual it is. One side is dull and matte, whilst the other side is incredibly glossy and shiny. I've done my best to capture both sides in the photos below, but even these don't really do the difference justice.

My question is, does anyone please know which way round the skirt should be fitted to the figure? I'm guessing it came with the shiny side facing inwards touching the figure and the matte side outwards, but I could be wrong! Does anyone know for sure, perhaps by owning a sealed T-L Snowtrooper with the skirt still attached?

Many thanks.

Jeremy

Can anyone help with this? :-)

Surely someone out there owns a Tri-Logo Snowtrooper?

Thanks.

I think the shiny side facing inwards would be correct but then again I am 99% sure that people on the factory did not care about that so I think they can be found with both :?

Thanks Lars. I'm sure you're right that they may come both ways, but I also assume there is probably a 'correct' way round, and you have confirmed what I was thinking, so thank you. It also means I can now dress him and show him off in all his skirted glory, along with a few non-socially-distanced mates! :-D

It's amazing just how different the plastic is on the PBP / T-L version!

@Snaketibe
I’ve only just seen this post so sorry for the late reply.
I have a TL Snowtrooper MOC but the figure is a uni visor figure, which I assume isn’t a PBP variant.
The skirt is also the normal one with slits and nit a circle.

I honestly don't think there would be a 'correct' way for this. They would bung them on anyway they could in the factory.

You may well be right, but it does seem odd to have such different sides to the skirt. I've opted for shiny side in as the other way around looks a bit too glam rock for Star Wars! :lol:

Then again there is a correct side for the kenobi, vader and lando capes :? But I am sure it is different with the skirt :lol:

Hey Jeremy, sorry for being late to the party. Here’s my tri Snowtrooper, it’s hard to tell be the skirt holes definitely look tighter than the loose one I have.
