Ouch. We wants it. That's a lot of (potentially) cool stuff in the pipeline. Makes me wonder if they'll ever re-visit the dang stormtroopers. But I'd want them re-tooled; the old ones were lacking.Just announced scout trooper and speeder bike!!!!! I am going to be so broke!

The Hasbro bikes were indeed, surprisingly good. I bought mine when they first came out and despite I haven't collected Hasbro for years and got rid of almost everything I had from them, I kept the bikes, made a diorama with them and are displayed in my son's room. I will get this one from SSC, but I will still keep the Hasbro ones. There is some nostalgia involved with them ...Now to decide if I want to sell off my Hasbro 1/6 scale Speederbikes and Biker Scout. Those were surprisingly good products for their time and still look great on display. I have one with Endor Luke and Leia on it being chased by a Biker Scout on the other. Maybe I'll just sell off one of them and keep the other for Luke and Leia to ride (until Sideshow gives us those two figures).
The more I look, the more identical it appears to me. I boosted the contrast a little and circled what I'm seeing so everyone can see. The clean "I" shaped spot near his Achilles Heel? Looks the same to me. But that second pic has all sorts of harsh shadows. Almost makes the strap look like it's bigger.Look at the weathering of the 2 boots. Could be just lighting, but who knows. We might get a regular Scout sold alone and a different one sold with the bike.
