Hoth Stormtrooper Unpainted 4-up Hardcopy (668-002)
The 4-up shown here relates to one of the five snowtroopers included in the Hoth Generator Attack playset. The corresponding number for the "being shot" pose is 668-002. The first three numbers, "668", correlate the 4-up to the Hoth Generator Attack playset, while the final three numbers, "002", designate the particular pose.

The photo above affords a glance at the back of the 4-up. You'll notice it is unpainted and is cast in a green urethane commonly referred to as Dynacast. Dynacast was the most prominent urethane used during the time period of the Micro Collection line, although some 4-ups have surfaced in carbalon, a brownish material, as well as one or two other resins.

The photo above shows a pre-production series I've assembled for this Hoth Stormtrooper pose. The series includes: silicone mold, unpainted 4-up, painted 4-up, and production 1:1. Individual entries for these other pieces may be viewed at the following links:
