Those are good reasons! :) I figure the snowtroopers happened to have armor that could work well in that environment for "whatever" reason! Not because it was white but because it was perhaps dusty? Or maybe the FO just looked at photos of Crait and thought it was snow and sent in the wrong type of troopers?

The visual dictionary actually touches on it for around that reason - filtering or something. I do really like the look of the concept snowtroopers - don't get me wrong - I just thought they could have come up something else for the mineral planet.

It was stated somewhere that the Snowtroopers on Craig just didn't turn on their heating elements in their suits as it wasn't needed.

As for the colour scheme, it was mentionedd that the concept art had them in that deco but it was decided the effort to modify the current Snowtrooper costumes was not really worth it for the little cameo they had in the movie.

So is this Snowtrooper actually a concept art figure rather than a movie figure?

I believe so.  I read that it was due to time constraints and budgets that they didn't want to modify the current Snowtrooper costumes just for such a small role.

*sigh* 6" BS are $5 at Walmart in the US.  Wish something like that happens here.  Even the Rey and Luke Speeders are $15-$20 each.

My local Walmart has the 3.75 inch First Order Tie Fighter exclusive reduced to $30.00. They had about 20 available on an end cap.

Found the electronic Lightsabers for $4 at Dollarama. These are the newer ones with the link at the bottom. Found Luke, Obi and Vader.
