Love this figure, both Vinty and modern. Anyone ever notice that the original POTF2 ANH Luke's weird grappling gun was sculpted with this guy's pistol as the base?
The Biker Scout was one of my favorite vintage figures and I'm eager to see any modern versions as they come out. I even like when Hasbro goes back to the well to make a Stealth or Hoth version. The Revenge of the Sith spinoffs [think Kashyyyk Troopers] don't interest me much, though. They always look like poorly designed Biker Scouts to me.
Very interesting to see the grappling gun in these terms! I never recognized this till now. Nice catch, Q-GJ.
