SPEEDER BIKE Speeder Bike with Scout Trooper With Scout Trooper
Word about Hasbro's Toys "R" Us exclusive Speeder Bike first broke right here on June 5, 2012 and more details were were published on June 18, 2012. The Speeder Bike with Scout Trooper, in it's Darth Maul movie Heroes packaging, was officially announced as part of Hasbro's Star Wars presentation at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Immediately after the presentation, Hasbro displayed the loose toy in one of their Star Wars display cases, and offered attendees the opportunity to play with it under close supervision. Needless to say, everyone that had a chance to play with it instantly fell in love with this greatly improved, and finally screen-accurate Speeder Bike. In addition to the fully redesigned Speeder Bike, this set also included a retooled Scout Trooper with a revised ball-jointed head and ball-hinged hips.
