I have a few of the 6in Black Series figures, but there was none that I was more excited about than this one. The Biker Scout is far and away my favorite of the Storm Trooper types, and to get a scale Speeder Bike to boot? Too much!
The Scout looks absolutely fantastic. He has all of the slimmer armor of the Scout, with some good paint detail to show his time in the environment. No shiny white for him.
He has the great movement we have come to expect from the Black Series 6inch line.
The bike is pretty well done. Pretty much an upscaled version of the original toy, but with greater detail and accuracy. Gone are the little feet that allow the bike to stand, this time going with a stand that has balls to allow posing of the bike in flight.
The stand works pretty well. There are three balls on the points of the stand to allow for some dynamic poses. There is one tall leg for flight, and two shorter legs for more of a hovering look.
Let’s not forget that there is an actual figure to go along with the bike. He looks great! From the massive points of articulation to the paint apps, he is bound to be a fan favorite.
And of course, when all else fails, there is the tiny holdout blaster in the boot. And boy is it tiny. It comes banded to the leg. Once loose, it is easily lost. Be careful.
And because I know someone will be wondering:
Two scales to show just how impressive the larger scale really is.
