Sideshow Premium Format Scout Trooper Redux!

Posted by Paul | February 26, 2009 at 10:04 PM ET |

    There is another!  (Premium Format Scout Trooper that is.)  Sideshow puzzlingly previews the newest Premium Format figure, an upright Scout Trooper sans speeder bike.  This doesn't seem like the wisest choice to introduce another version of a previously released character, especially when there are so many other characters in our rich Star Wars universe.  Perhaps they are trying to make this very popular character more affordable to other collectors! Here is hoping that this won't happen too often.  Click thumbnail below to check out the preview.
