From Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to debut the Sixth Scale Speeder Bike. The Scout Trooper (see previous post) is useless without his bike.
Capable of reaching breakneck speeds, Imperial Scout Troopers raced their Speeder Bikes through the forest moon of Endor, whizzing between trees and underbrush in an unforgettable chase against Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, as they attempted to warn the shield generator stations of the Rebel Alliance's presence.
The highly-detailed rapid-transport reconnaissance vehicle boasts a sleek design with a military grade repulsorlift engine, power cell, and simple blaster cannon for defense. Built for maneuverability, it features articulated foot pedals, engine flaps, and steering vanes to achieve the perfect action display, with or without pilot. Collectors can also get a closer look at the details of the craft outlined on the Aratech 74-Z Specification Card, which can be exhibited alongside the figure as a companion accessory.
