Since a few people have asked, here's the thread to discuss the upcoming Retro "Biker Scout/Scout Trooper" figure from Return of The Jedi. No pictures of the figure just yet.

Will you be purchasing this retro figure?

But I thought Retro was getting its own thread/section? The Vintage Collection section keeps getting bogged down with these 5POA threads.

This is what the Vintage Collection section looks like right now.

Not to be a whiner, but it’s gotten a bit annoying to navigate.

Glad to hear retro is thriving and kicking ass 😆.

Retro has become the focus of my collecting now. I am putting vtc on the back burner.

For me it's Kenner vintage (77-85) or new Retro. That is all. Nothing else exists for me. So please, give us a separate forum and we'll all be happy. :)

I am so looking forward to this one. I have put off doing any army building of Scouts because of how expensive they've gotten. Now if they'll just make the Emperor's Royal Guard, then I would finally be able to fulfil that childhood dream of recreating the scene on the box of the Imperial Shuttle.

I'd love it if Hasbro would make some Retro vehicles, the speeder bike would be very welcome. They could even "double dip" and sell it for ROTJ and then another release for The Mandalorian, include grogu in the pouch with it.

I'm just hoping they don't pull the "this RotJ Retro Collection will be sold as a 6 pack boxed set" crap. And normal retail/fan channel not exclusive.
I think they will get a standard release. The ANH set one was a third time reissue, and I am pretty sure set 2 is packaged this way because of the droids. Otherwise they would have to sell each of the droids at a higher price point or the other figures could linger because many would only buy the droids.

Biker Scouts weaved through the Endor forest at breakneck speed, trying to outrun the Rebels and warn the shield generator station of the enemy’s presence. Inspired by the original 1970s Kenner STAR WARS action figures, this STAR WARS: RETRO COLLECTION 3.75-INCH BIKER SCOUT figure is inspired by the character’s appearance in STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI in honor of the film’s 40th anniversary.

I don't usually army build, but I'm a dyed in the wool Scout Trooper fan. It's gonna suuuuuck, because I'm gonna buyyyyy so mannnnyyyy. 🙃

Love how tight together the legs are too, so many vintage ones are wide stanced at this point.
