Hot Toys Takes a New Crack at Star Wars’ Scout Trooper, Speeder Bike
Thanks to The Mandalorian, Hot Toys, like other companies, has had a chance to create Star Wars figures of the remnant versions of Imperials like the Scout Trooper. And thanks to the characters’ penchants for desert worlds, hover bikes like the Swoop also came back into vogue. So why not revisit the original? For their newest release, Hot Toys goes back to Return of the Jedi, and the original Speeder Bike with Biker Scout. Using a newly developed body and weathered armor, this soldier of the Empire looks more forest-worn than ever before.
Per the official description, “It features a newly developed helmet and armor with weathering effects, a finely tailored fabric bodysuit, a blaster pistol, a blaster rifle, and a themed display stand! The Speeder Bike is crafted with astonishing craftsmanship showcasing the mechanical details of the vehicle and measures approximately 50cm in length. It features great paint applications, articulated foot pedals, steering vane, and engine flaps, a cargo bag at the back of the machine, and a themed diorama base.” Fans can also order the Trooper separately for $230; the combination of both will set collectors back $505.
As always, orders through Sideshow make payment plans available. Delivery is expected for third quarter of next year. Take a look through the gallery below for more images.
