Speeder Bike with Scout Trooper [TRU exclusive]
« on: September 10, 2012, 05:14:58 PM »
Yeah, I know, it doesn't technically belong in The Vintage Collection and we really need a 2012 Movie Heroes/"Darth Maul Collection" section.

So what does everyone think of it? Has anyone found it yet now that it's showing up in stores? I'm really looking forward to finding a couple, especially if I can get them on sale this week.

We've got some pics in our SDCC & CVI coverage but I also seen Yakface Jayson has a great breakdown of it posted on Yakface.com right now.  It certainly got me frothing at the mouth for this one, or two!  >:D :)

Picked this up the other night.  Not bad the stand so it can hover is nice. I like the opening hood too.

the bike itself feels tiny
if it is to scale, I blame this feeling on having every speederbike ever made and assuming they were correct in size

the black ball joints on the shoulders and ankles is a stark contrast from the white of the armor
opposite colored joints seem to be the rule not the exception

It's definitely a worthy resculpt. I could see picking a few more up if they ever hit clearance.  But at Toys r us that could be like 3 years.

I will take some shots monday.. but the shoulder (black loop) kinda ruins it for me.. kind of like the vintage blue clone with black socks.
