The latest issue of themagazine is now available in the UK, offering a cheaper and easier way to fill your copy of with Snowtroopers.
That’s because the cover-mounted, foil-bagged free gift included with Issue 79 is – you guessed it – a Snowtrooper minifigure, identical to the standard rank-and-file soldiers included in the latest Ultimate Collector Series set. While the 6,785-piece walker only comes with four basic Snowtroopers (and one Snowtrooper Commander), there’s actually seating space for up to 40 minifigures.

But thanks to the increased price of the latest battle pack, that requires a spend of roughly £215, which is no small ask when you’ve already invested £700 in in the first place.

That said, it’s worth remembering that the AT-AT has space for two more speeder bikes – and the Hoth Scout Trooper is a very cool minifigure – so maybe a combination ofand the magazine is the way to go if you want a full AT-AT. Just remember that while there’s seating room for 40, you can actually fit in standing up.
