It looks like the countdown to the end of the LEGO Star Wars 2015 Advent Calendar (75097) begins with first item for the Hoth theme.
For Day 17 of the calendar, we have the Hoth Rebel Trooper minifigure which is sort of a teaser of what’s to come next year. This is a brand new minifigure that will also be in next year’s Hoth Attack (75138) set and most likely with the UCS Assault on Hoth (75098) as well. The new torso and leg printing is pretty nice with a new white and gray color scheme with tan accents. He also has a has the Alliance Cold Weather Backpack along with the cap with googles.
