"An Imperial probe droid. It's a good bet the Empire knows we're here."
Joining the Militaries of Star Wars Sixth Scale collection, Sideshow is proud to present the Imperial Probe Droid. First introduced in the opening scenes of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, this tenacious spy sets intergalactic war back in motion upon locating the Rebel Alliance base, hidden on the icy surface of the planet Hoth.
Displayed hovering atop a museum quality base with an optional snowscape theme, the immense Imperial Probe Droid Sixth Scale Figure is packed with personality. Ominous black ‘eye’ lenses, brilliant light up features, and a ‘squawk box’ loaded with garbled transmission sound effects distinguish the Probot with a dramatic, less than friendly impression. Designed for searching, scanning and sampling, the diligent patrol unit has a wide range of motion with rotating dome, retractable antennae, and fully articulated manipulator arms. Just be cautious when handling; they’re armed with blasters, and in some cases they’ve been known to self-destruct.
Product size: 17.5 inches High (444.5 mm in height) x 7 inches Wide (Width 177.8 mm)
Comes with Articulated legs, Light-up eye, Probe Droid Communication Sound, Blaster with articulation, Extending antennae, Removable sculpted Hoth base 'hugger', Base with support rod
Sideshow Collectibles has been doing a wonderful job with their Star Wars line and it looks like it's going to continue :)
