You’ve got to think that one of the main reasons Imperial troops got their asses handed to them on Endor was their camouflage. Or, lack thereof. That glossy white armour plating doesn’t exactly make you blend in with the forest surroundings.
This is a Swamp Trooper, but that colour palette could easily have worked among the bushes and trees of Endor. And while they couldn’t have done much about Lando and Wedge’s destruction of the second Death Star, the boots on the ground might at least not have embarrassed themselves against a bunch of teddy bears.
