So, you’re probably asking yourself did Star Wars collectors really need another Biker Scout. We probably didn’t. But each time Hasbro tackles what we had deemed as a definitive figure, they go and do something even better to it to blow the previous version out of the running. The 2006 VTSC Bike Scout figure really changed how collectors viewed this character in the basic figure line. The packaging clearly was a huge part of that figure’s success, but so was he sculpt and deco. Hasbro then used the sculpt a few more times, even retooling parts for various releases, but the next time this figure made it into the basic figure lineup was in 2009’s Legacy Collection. Released as Biker Scout (BD12), Hasbro just improved upon the deco a bit more and this became the definitive version of the Biker Scout/Scout Trooper for the next few years. All of that changed with the release of 2012’s SW [TPM 3D] Speeder Bike With Scout Trooper which was released as a Toys R Us exclusive. It brought all of the fine parts from the 2006 VTSC Biker Scout and then added new splendor to create the consummate Biker Scout/Scout Trooper action figure – despite some deco issues.
Status: Biker Scout is a slightly repositioned version of the Scout Trooper from 2012's SW [TPM 3D] Speeder Bike With Scout Trooper Toys R Us exclusive.
