Bandai’s line of Star Wars Model Kits continue to grow. Their latest one that they have revealed is the Biker Scout and Speeder Bike Model Kit.
I should note that this model kit is in scale with their Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, C3-PO & R2-D2 model kits. Not much information has been released, except for the fact that he’ll come with multiple interchangeable hands and a pistol. I’m not sure how well articulated he’ll be though compared to the likes of Darth and Stormtrooper. I guess we’ll also find out in time as well if he’s removable from the bike. If not, I think that would be a deal breaker for many.
Also like their previous Star Wars Model Kits, the Biker Scout set will be pre-painted. He’ll also come with a Death Star themed base to fit with the other 1/12 Star Wars Model Kits, as well as an Endor Base to recreate the iconic scene from Return of The Jedi. They have also hinted their will be another release soon, which will come with another part of the Endor Base.
This model kit is due out in June and will cost around $42.
I know that recently Hasbro produced a Speeder Bike and Biker Scout. I can’t say if this one will be better or not. But if you missed out on the Hasbro one this one is well worth a pick up and would fit in perfectly with your Black Series Collection.
