I disagree: comparing with previous 3 3/4 inch speeder images, this speeder also has a different 'rear' end wider, more splayed (if it can be described as such!), as well as a different front.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?
* 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!I disagree: comparing with previous 3 3/4 inch speeder images, this speeder also has a different 'rear' end 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.
Should be $19.99, I believe.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.
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.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?
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.picked up two of these. I like the look but the bike easily falls apart too quickly. really meant more for display and less for play in my opinion
