These stormtroopers are stationed on planets instead of Imperial vessels. Their lightweight, flexible armor allows them to maneuver the high-velocity speeder bikes that they ride while conducting patrols – or when they're chasing Rebel intruders like the ones they encounter on Endor's moon.
The 2007 TAC Saga Legends line was especially important to Star Wars collectors because they were involved with the latter half of the action figure selection. Obscure pack-in figures, some of the rarer standard-released figures and some of the bets army builders you could possibly imagine were chosen by actual collectors – so show some gratitude for their persistence! One of the most popular figures of 2006 was an immediate choice for consideration and that would be 2006’s VTSC Biker Scout figure. Hasbro made it super easy for collectors again. Without any enhancements or updates (not that it needed any at all), Hasbro released the same exact figure in the 2007 TAC Saga Legends line as one of the many Fans’ Choice winners. It was one of the best decisions the collecting community made as a whole ever. Quite a few fans are quiet about loving Return Of The Jedi, but the fact remains that it has some of the best aliens and Imperials in all of the Original Trilogy Star Wars films. And as far as we’re concerned, the Biker Scout will remain one of the coolest Imperials ever designed.
The Biker Scout, also called a Scout Trooper (but not called that name all that often in the Hasbro modern line), comes to collectors in the same exact fashion as it did in 2006, save for the packaging. Obviously, no modern packaging will be able to eclipse the awesomeness of “vintage styled” packaging, but we have to admit that we’ve grown fond of the 30 (77-07) packaging. Despite its extremely modern angular look, there is something retro about it that makes it the perfect medium to transport our beloved Star Wars action figures. There is a bit of too much space in this particular line look, but keep in mind that the 30 (77-07) collection contains some of the largest accessories and figures yet in a Star Wars action figure line, so while Yoda and even a Biker Scout may have extraordinarily roomy bubbles, they’re large to accompany the likes of the 2007 TAC Darktrooper Saga Legends #1 Fans’ Choice figure or 2007’s TAC Hermi Odle (30 29) figure from the main basic figure lineup. These examples will prove to you the need for larger bubbles.
Status: Biker Scout is a straight repack of 2006's VTSC Biker Scout figure.
