The men and women of the Rebel Alliance are fiercely dedicated to the principle of freedom, and will lay down their lives in defense of their belief in democracy, to see the fall of the Empire. Some were Imperials disillusioned with their government's tyranny. Some were from worlds subjugated by the Empire. In stark contrast to the faceless anonymity of the stormtrooper ranks or the precision drilling of Imperial Academy training, Alliance troops were aggressively individualistic and much more rag-tag.
Princess Leia led a desperate mission in the battle against the Empire, delivering the stolen plans for the Death Star to the Rebellion, in hope that Rebellion forces might find a weakness in the battle station's engineering. Leia's ship, the Tantive IV, was captured by Lord Vader near the desert world of Tatooine, and Vader's forces wasted no time boarding the blockade runner. Scores of Rebel fleet troopers fought valiantly to defend Leia and their precious cargo, and their stalwart sacrifice they provided enough time for Leia to hide the Death Star plans in a little astromech droid, R2-D2, and commanded the droid to flee in an escape pod to the desert world below, in search of their only hope – the Jedi known as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Another 1:6 Scale Figure in Sideshow Collectibles' impressive Militaries Of Star Wars line is released to thunderous applause. The Rebel Fleet Trooper in one-sixth scale has arrived to the elation of many and Sideshow has magnificently mastered the likeness of Lieutenant Pello Scrambas, one of the members of the Rebel Alliance we get a very good look at on the Tantive IV. It is quite an amazing feat how well Sideshow is able to replicate some of our favorite Star Wars characters in 1:6 Scale and Rebel Fleet Trooper is just another one of their examples of the finest action figure mastery. Sideshow makes it priority number one to not disappoint collectors of their line and it all starts with a great likeness and an authentic costume. And the Rebel Fleet Trooper score high on both accounts. A "first time available" 1:6 Scale Figure, the Rebel Fleet Trooper has never been released by the Hasbro line so it is truly a special release for many 1:6 Scale Figure collectors. And to get such a high quality version of this character for the first time makes it extra awesome! The Rebel Fleet Trooper 1:6 Scale Figure is a near-exact representation of the character seen in Episode IV from the squint in his eye to the salt and pepper hair. Every detail of the actor and costume from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope can be found on this 1:6 Scale Figure. And with the Imperial Stormtrooper, Darth Vader and Captain Antilles figures, collectors are extremely fortunate that they have the opportunity to recreate that opening scene that started it all in the Star Wars saga.
The Rebel Fleet Trooper is truly an awesome figure to finally add to your long-suffering Star Wars collection because if your are a 1:6 Scale Figure collector, this is one figure that desperately needed to be added to it. You'll absolutely be impressed that every detail of the costume is exacted with superior perfection. The color of his shirt has been woven in the right shade of blue and his gray pants fall perfectly at boot level and have the right amount of length so that you can imitate the bagginess at the top of the boots. The black vest is loaded with various compartments and hugs his lean body very closely. In other words it's perfect. You'll probably recall of the controversies with the inconsistent Hasbro figures as far as color and accuracy of their uniforms? Well, you won't find any discrepancies in the colors used for Sideshow's 1:6 Scale Figure. It's all here and in the right places and absolutely perfect. The helmet and blaster exceed our expectations by a landslide and serve as conclusive proof that Sideshow Collectibles should be the worthy candidates of a scaled replicas license. The weapons (as well as accessories like helmets) of these figures are almost in and of themselves reasons to collect the 1;6 Scale Figures line. Yes, they are that good. We are not exaggerating. So you should really consider that you are getting scaled replicas included with these luxurious 1:6 Scale Figures. Still, without being too picky, we still think that the Rebel Fleet Trooper is a little too lightly accessorized.
