The Rebel Scout Trooper, not to be mixed up with the Imperial Biker Scout or the standard Rebel Soldier! If you know your Star Wars, then you will know who these guys are. Toymaker Kenner missed an opportunity to make one of these fellows, but years later, Lego have gotten in on the act and fashioned a rather faithful mini action figure. Part of the Lego range of Star Wars figures, there are dozens to collect, which means you can build a steady collection really quickly. This is great news for those on a budget and good news for parents who are trying to teach kids the value of money!
He stands at an inch in height and is in line with all Lego figures. With the same movable limbs, you can turn his head, lift the arms and bend the legs. The figure is compatible with any Lego set.
What makes this toy so good is the creativity on the helmet. Lego have moulded a very shapely helmet with a superb viser, just like in the films. He even has the strap bit under the chin. I was a little disappointed that the face lacked character. The aliens always have detailed faces and this chap looks quite plain facially which is a shame. On a better not, the colours on the body are spot on with blues and blacks and the grey slacks are also accurate, which pleases me as a Star wars buff!
I am particularly happy that he comes with a decent rifle, which he can remove from either hand. A neatly sculptured weapon with a cool blaster point gives the figure some added value. If you fancy buying him for yourself, do what I do and first scour online auction sites for a cut price figure, if not check online shops where you should pay no more than two to three pounds for a figure. This guy, although plain in the face, is a good model and as there are lots of them in the films, you could buy a few and build a mini army!
