Hasbro's 1/6 scale 12-inch Stormtroopers were bloated, obese and certainly a HUGE disaster in the area of 12-inch Star Wars collectibles BUT surprisingly, their Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike turned out quite nicely. Released in 2000, Hasbro's 1/6 scale Speeder Bike came with 12-inch Scout Trooper in a very nice package giving the impression of the high speed chase through the forest of Endor.
By the way, clicking on the pictures gives you a much larger and better view of the figure and vehicle :)
Sleekly styled for exceptional maneuverability and powered by a turbine repulsorlift engine, the Speeder Bike is an excellent vehicle for patrol and reconnaisance missions, such as the forest planet of Endor.
Speeder Bike out of box
The Speeder Bike is very faithfully realized in 1/6 scale and it's really impressive!!
Comes with swivelling front-mounted blaster cannon, pivoting handlebars, positionable foot pedals, removable poncho and flip-up exhaust flaps.
The front of the speeder bike has forward guidance repulsor field directional vanes and terrain sensor
