This is really cool! I wonder if the ones in the movie will really have wheels, or if this is just for play value? I can't tell how different this Trooper is form the ROTJ version, but we may finally have an awesome biker scout.

Mods - feel free to combine this, the boga lizard thread, and any other thread about random new stuff into one thread.

The Biker Scout sculpt is cool, but seems stupid to include in a prequel. Hope they release it later with an accurate ROTJ speederbike though, wouldn't be hard considering they just have to retool a few things.

I like it. The scout is awesome, even though it looks like a rehash. The bike is ok, but I love the originals so that might be hindering my opinion.

It looks so EU to me, but then again so do the last 2 SW films. I'll pass on this one.

Yeah, I think the Bike looks a little too 'American chopper' for me.

I am sure the wheel is for the play value...I havn't seen any wheel yet!!! In a way, I like it, probably will pick one up!

I'll no doubt get it but I'm getting really tired of everything being so exotic. How about just making a very striped down speeder bike without all of the frills. Compare the Model-T to the cars of today it's not all colorful and brimming with detail. Uhhhh, George is such a friggin' idiot.

I like it and think it will be a nice edition to the fleet of speeder bikes already available. Is the scout trooper the same as the green uy from the lego set?

I hope Carl gets one of these bikes on Aqua Teen...."Sweet nectar, my back tire is raddddd, meatwad!"

Seriously, this bodes well for my continual complaint that I want a retooled Speeder Bike with a VOTC-style Biker Scout. Nice looking piece, if not TOO pricey I'm sure I'll buy 4 for a squad in a diorama...

I'll laugh my butt off if these have the patented American Chopper Goodyear Tire in the movie. Maybe they cruise around Coruscant????

Hey, you may be closer to the truth than you think. George Lucas is a car fanatic. I wouldn't be suprised if these guys have pit crews.

Is that the Barc Trooper and Barc Speeder?

I am not into it, but not totally against it.
