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.

Let me know if it’s what your after and take him out of the case and I’ll get some better pics.

Cheers
Thanks very much for these (and what a great MOC, btw!). Looking at the pics, it almost looks like the shiny side of the skirt is facing outwards rather than inwards. Is that the case please, or is it a trick of the light?

Thanks.

Jeremy

I’ve taken some more pics this morning in the light and without the acrylic although the bubble does make it hard to see the shine on the vinyl.

I’m confident the hole is circular and pretty sure the glossy side is on the inside. It was also sold in the UK (69p!)

Bear in mind it’s a trilogo - when QC went out of the window, so it’s quite possible the skirt was put on backwards. :D

Many thanks once again. It's true what you say about the QC on Tri-Logos of course, but if yours has the shiny side inwards, it makes me feel like I've made the right decision to display mine the same way (and to be honest, I think it looks better that way too). As for the 69p price tag... Where's my TARDIS? :lol:
