Another 12" 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 12" 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" 12" figure, the Rebel Fleet Trooper has never been released by the Hasbro line so it is truly a special release for many 12" collectors. And to get such a high quality version of this character for the first time makes it extra awesome! The Rebel Fleet Trooper 12" 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 12" 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 12" 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 12" 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 12" 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 12" figures.
