Being in only a small part of all the Star Wars movies, the Snow Trooper has little reference out there dedicated to it. Below are a few of the good books and websites we know that is out there for the fans.

Reference Books

The Snowtrooper costume is very difficult to find pictures of, as it was seen the least in all the Star Wars movies. The few photo references that are out there are very scatttered across books and magazines. Below are some of the best books we've found that had images. The out of print "STARLOG guide to the Imperial Forces" had a couple pictures that were worth the $7.00 it cost. I have those pictures in the "Reference Pictures" of this website.

Star Wars Visual Dictionary image
"The Star Wars Visual Dictionary" has two good images of the Snowtrooper and his accessories. It has a very clear image of the back of the backpack, which is worth the price of the book alone. The book costs about $15.00 plus shipping on

Star Wars Chronicles
The "Star Wars Chronicles" is the mother of all Star Wars reference books. Over 300 full color pages of studio shots of all the props from the Star Wars movies. I cannot stress how well done and detailed this book is. If Lucas would only allow this kind of quality in all his licenced items, we'd be some bigtime happy fans. (grin) The one drawback is that the book has only one image of the Snowtrooper, and it's a small picture at that. But, the rest of the reference shots of other costumes in the 'Chronicles' book out weighs that one drawback, bigtime.

It's a bit pricey at over $120.00 but the price tag is definetly worth it for the quality you get in this book. You can get a discount on the retail price at

The Prop Builders Molding and Casting Handbook
The Prop Builder's Molding And Casting Handbook by Thurston James. It costs about $17.00 U.S. and shows, in Step by Step instruction, about 8 different ways to make a mold. It also goes into great detail how to build a Vacuumform Machine. This book rivals "THIS" website in detailed descriptions! I cannot say enough about it... buy the book... use the book... be one with the book. has it instock.

Websites has a great image gallery of Snowtroopers. He also has some great distressing and detailing techniques throughout the site. The owner of this site is a great guy and I cannot thank him enough for making his website availble to the fans.

Snowtrooper Resource Center - Matt Clayson has done a great job providing pictures of the Snowtrooper costume also. He and his costume group have been tweaking snowtrooper armor for years now, they first debutted their creations at the "Star Wars Celebration" convention in 1999.
