Reserved for the most experienced explorer soldiers in high-risk missions the speeder bike has been optimized with laser cannons and more powerful engines.


Looks like the speeder bikes of the past have been completely been revamped


Who's picking this one up? Thoughts?

It may not actually be in TFAs - but it looks great (IMO) - and at a reasonably cheap price-point, I will be buying.

The fact that this guy is wearing a full armored suit on a bike just bothers me. Imagine trying to sit on a bike seat while wearing a rigid armored butt plate and codpiece, with armor wrapped around both thighs. I'm sure I don't have to describe all the places that armor would be pinching and causing severe discomfort, thats one of the main reason bike pilots in ROTJ had pants on and a soft codpiece instead of rigid armor, to save the actors wearing it from groin torture.

Granted those were all CG but PT clones rode their bikes fully armored too. Anyway, i bet this won't be featured i nthe movie and is just one of Hasbro's made up vehicle to buff up their line up.

Okay - the more I look at this set, the more I want it - if I see this at Midnight Madness, I'm picking it up for sure...

...unless I happen to see a TFA 3 3/4 inch Special Forces TIE Fighter - because I'll probably be spending all my pocket money on that instead :P

Assuming this isn't in the film, then it's cool to see Hasbro going the mini-rig route in this line. I'd like to see them Keep that up.

The speeder Looks interesting, but the figure mot so much. I won't get this right away, but if I find it on clearance later, I'll get it for the bike and throw the figure away.

This is clearly the same old Speeder Bike with a new piece on front and a different paint job.
But of course the new TIE Fighter isn't a huge departure either so maybe this is legit and not a Cruise Missile Trooper style Hasbro invention?

I disagree: comparing with previous 3 3/4 inch speeder images, this speeder also has a different 'rear' end :P wider, more splayed (if it can be described as such!), as well as a different front.
It may indeed share much of the previous designs - however (from what I can tell), it does look like a completely different speeder.

* And by completely different speeder, I mean new sculpt wise, if you get my drift (as the design it essentially the same as the ROTJ speeder). Hope that made sense!

Nope, the Elite Stormtrooper has totally different legs and I've noticed there's a slightly different chest and hand compared to the Stormtrooper Sergeant figure.

This is probably the only vehicle im going to get. As long as the figure sits right, cant trust those images, and it's not too expensive. Yeah, it's a repaint but it actually looks like a vehicle instead of a toy because stuff wrong proportions.

Picked this up today (14.99 in Sainsburys, UK). Stormtrooper has articulated knees although they don't help too much in sitting him on the speeder bike. Great little set for the price.

Did anyone else pick this up?

Did anyone else pick this up? I got it but from my girlfriend for Christmas so I won't have it unboxed until then. The articulated knees are a huge plus just for added articulation. It means slightly more poses one way or the other, even if it doesn't help the bike much.

This is one of the few things I picked up at Midnight Madness. I really like the look of the Special Forces Stormtrooper. The bike is a partial retool of the Toys "R" Us Endor Speederbike that was released a few years back (and was a wonderful toy - if you missed it, it's definitely worth tracking down). The plus-shaped peg hole is still present in the new bike, despite some rear-end modifications to the mold, so it works well with the clear flight stand that came packaged with the Endor bike. I think that's a nice touch.

Mine was like that at first but once I snapped the top piece that the handlebars are attached to down firmly it held it together well. Much lighter and less substantial than the others. A stand would be have been cool. But it's got a great look. It can be tricky to get the rider on it, but the fact the elite Stormtrooper has articulated knees is a nice touch.

Well, I just picked this up this morning at Target. I like it overall, but it has issues. I've already got a major stress mark on one of the back engine flaps. As with this whole line so far, it's a mixed bag. I'm not disappointed but also not thrilled.

That Biker Scout was easily one of the worst figures ever. I remember when it came out it was the first Biker Scout we had gotten since the vintage days and it was such a disappointment. I remember we had to wait until the POTJ until it came out once again.

So, I'm a sucker for Speeder Bikes. I finally bit the bullet and got one. I honestly really like the vehicle. I don't like the price and feel that it really should be in the $14.99 price point, but that's just me.

Not looking at cost, I really like it. The front gun actually pivots up and down. I looked at several Youtube reviews to try to justify getting it. I honestly wish these people would actually open the toy and play with it for a little and get to know it before reviewing it.

I actually didn't know the foot pedals are on a ratcheting style joint so it can sit in different pre-determined positions. They might have mentioned it, but if they did, then I didn't notice.

The other thing was all the reviews I saw complained that the rear flaps don't flip up and they actually had to pull them off and re-position them in the opened position. That is not true, I was able to open and close the rear flaps just but flipping em up like I did with the TRU Speeder Bike that this was built off of. As for it falling apart, it does out of the box, but you just have to press it together and then it's really sturdy. Like I said, those people doing reviews really should spend some time with the toy before going to review. My impression from them was that it's a really crappy POS that you basically have to compromise to like.

Anyways, like I said, I have it and love it. Don't like that it was $25 (CDN) but I just couldn't wait any longer and decided to get it. TRU had them on sale last week, but they didn't restock till this week and this week, they have the 6" figures on sale but have no stock. They only have 3 3/4 stuff that they didn't have last week. So annoying...put the thing they don't have in stock on sale and restock after the sale.

The only thing in my opinion that would have made this even better was an SA Stormtrooper with it as oppoed to the 7 POA figure that came with it.

Nighthawk
10-14-2015, 12:29 PM
As mentioned above, I love Speeder Bikes so when the FO Speeder Bike was revealed, I was really happy. Only wish the trooper had more articulation.

I took my leftover parts from my General Weir and put some of the Elite Stormtrooper stuff on him. Now I have an SA Trooper to ride my FO Speeder Bike.

Sorry the lighting isn't too good in the pics

Well, in all honesty, if you look at Hasbro's offerings (especially G.I.Joe figures), their paint matching sucks. Also, like I mentioned, the lighting is bad so the flash will always highlight non matching paint. To me, I'm cool with the helmet differences in color cause for me, black is black.

In defense, the helmet matches to the jump suit material under the armor, which has a glossier black look to it.

Just for those wondering, based on the youtube videos I saw, it seems that the reviewers think the rear flaps don't open and close and you have to actually pop them up and reposition them, they actually flip up and down just like the previous speeder bike so don't know what they were talking about and why theirs couldn't do it. Here's some pictures to show that.

With the 3 3/4" SA stuff being relegated to a Walmart Exclusive. I'm not too sure if I want to keep collecting 3 3/4" stuff anymore. Would anyone be interested in trading for my custom? You'd get everything in the picture except the stand. I'm thinking of only collecting 6" stuff so I'd trade it for any 6" figure I need or just sell it for $24.99. If anyone's interested let me know. I'd rather it go to someone here that would appreciate it. The hands are a little loose though as the holes were drilled out to go on another custom before and I basically had to shim it to put it back on this body.

So, I decided in the end to keep this. I may throw it up on Ebay for $50 and if someone wants it that badly, they can have it...haha.

Anyways, the thing I didn't like about my original custom was the way I mounted the thigh holster. It stuck out too far and the pistol was prone to falling off easily.

I finally decided that if I'm gonna mod, I'll go all the way, so I cut off the holster from the actual Elite Stormtrooper's leg and cut up my General Weir's leg a little and bascially modded the holster onto it. Now I'm actually really happy with him and he's now my FO Elite Scout Trooper. The strap on the leg works perfectly as it makes it look like the holster part is strapped on with the strap as the actual FO Stormtroopers have armor there with the holster being part of the armor.

I think the next step is to modify the TRU exclusive Speeder Bike stand that I use for this so it's not so high.

I actually haven't picked this one up yet. Really need to. I feel like it'll be really cool.

Honestly thought it was overpriced but I knew if there was only one 3 3/4 vehicle I had to get, it was this one cause I liked Speeder Bikes and I already visualized making that Elite Scout Trooper already before getting it.

As it turns out, this is still the only 3 3/4" TFA vehicle I've gotten.

I mean, all the vehicles are overpriced this time around. This one is worth about $15, but for $20 I don't think it's that bad of a deal.

The X-Wing on the other hand....

Yeah, I paid $26.99 CDN for this. When I got my TRU exclusive Speeder Bike with Biker Scout, it came with a stand and a nice cardboard background for $19.99 CDN. That is what I feel the price of this Elite Speeder should have been.

I may have to track down a Speeder Bike stand for when I finally pick this one up. I want to display it, but not if it's just sitting on my shelf. Needs to be raised a little.
It's why I'm hanging my X-Wings.

I'm still trying to see how I can modify my Speeder Bike stand so it doesn't raise the Speeder Bike so high.

Finally cut up the Speeder Bike stand. Now my Speeder can be displayed nicely without it floating up too high. The display stand was just cut and glued so it doesn't look that nice, but hey, it's clear and it does it's job. :)

Darn! I shouldn't have bought this thing then. It's not screen accurate cause I can see it! I couldn't have just not bought it and said it's on my shelf but you just can't see it. :)

Was going through my TFA display to fix some stuff up and found this at the back. Forgot about this. Wish these guys made it to the movie. This was a custom I did to make the rider super articulated.
The base is a black Biker Scout with FO Elite Stormtroopers modded onto it.

The 2 TRU stores near me got in a ton of these as well as the other vehicles in this case assortment. With 30% off they are $14. I guess just another symptom of why they are going out of business. They should have clearanced this stuff out 2 years ago.
