When trudging through the snow, why not look like you're on a mission for Darth Vader himself? Now you can dress like an Imperial Snowtrooper, as seen at the famous Battle of Hoth in "The Empire Strikes Back," thanks to Anovos.
You don't need your own AT-AT Imperial Walker to look the part. This Imperial Snowtrooper ensemble is priced at $2,000 (about £1,290 or AU$2,450) and available for preorder now for North American customers, with estimated shipping in August 2015. Customers outside of North America can subscribe to the Anovos newsletter for updates on international sales.
This highly detailed, officially licensed suit features everything you'll need to serve the Empire, except for undergarments, socks and footwear.
A decorative buckle with a webbed belt, cloth pouches and a rear belt cylinder round out the outfit. The gloves have demi-gauntlet style armor and elastic wristbands.
The armor is made with high-quality PVC plastic with finished undersides, backs and insides. To ensure the authentic look of the armor, the hard pieces were 3D scanned and replicated from Lucasfilm costume and prop artifacts.
