First Look: Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike from Star Wars
Just ahead of the figure’s worldwide release, Sideshow’s newest UNBOXING VIDEO gives fans an up-close look at Hot Toys’ latest sixth scale figure: The Scout Trooper™ and Speeder Bike™ Sixth Scale Figure Set, as seen in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™.
Take a closer look at everything from the figure packaging to the range of articulation and variety of accessories included in this highly anticipated release with the unboxing video below.
Unboxing the Figure
The Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike Sixth Scale Figure Set faithfully recreates the Imperial forces that patrolled Endor™, guarding the protective shield generator of the second Death Star™. These highly accurate collectible figures are based on the characters’ appearances during the thrilling speeder bike sequences in Return of the Jedi. In addition to a newly developed helmet and armor with weathered effects, the figure also features a finely tailored fabric bodysuit, a blaster pistol, and a blaster rifle. A variety of gloved hands allow for a range of pose options with this well-articulated figure.
Though the Scout Trooper can be purchased separately, when paired with the expertly crafted Speeder Bike, the set showcases the high-octane dramatics of one of the original trilogy’s most iconic chase scenes. (Just don’t aim your Speeder Bike at any trees!) The vehicle is expertly crafted with meticulous paint application, articulated foot pedals, steering vane, and engine flaps — all of which allow for a variety of poses. It also comes with a cargo bag and a themed display stand so your display can reflect the rugged terrain of Endor.
Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
High above the forest moon of Endor, the second Death Star was under construction. The Empire sought to rebuild their ultimate tool of mass destruction so that Rebel forces would give up once and for all. Below, under the cover of tall trees and lush foliage, Scout Troopers patrolled the areas surrounding the Death Star’s shield generator. Their swift and sleek Speeder Bikes allowed them to zoom in between the massive vegetation while on the lookout for any pesky Rebel scum.
