I think that this clean Bikerscout, being one of the hardest to find figures from the POTJ line, should be an obvious choice for a reissue on the new Saga cards.  Makes the most sense since many people never saw it at retail, like the MOTDS Maul and Vader that have now been reissued.  An army building 4-pack of these would be equally cool!

Hopefully Hasbro's paying attention here!

I'd like a new Scout with bike myself...  Not a reissue bike either, but a to-scale and properly detailed one...  That's  my opinion right now on this...  It'd look great with what they're capable of today I think, and if articulated right the Scout could be the best thing since...

Well it could be great I guess...  :)

The POTJ scout has an ok look, but it's very unposeable, and just is missing some quality I like in army builders.

I have heard a rumor that the upcoming Bike Scout Army builder pack (if it ever gets released) will consist of 2 clean and 2 dirty.

If Hasbro was smart they would do 3 clean and 1 dirty.  And what's up with that particular stance?  Can't they just stand straight up-and-down like the vintage Biker Scouts (which is my favorite figure of all time).

The POTJ version of the Biker Scout was pretty good from a sculpting standpoint.  But you know what?  Hasbro can do better now.  Hopefully we can move this discussion to the SAGA forums, and it'll take form as one of the seven deluxe figures for 2004, with a Speeder Bike and some decent articulation.

I always thought this figure was pretty nice as well, and do agree that it would be nice if it was re-released....or if they packed it 3 clean, 1 dirty in the troop builder pack, or even all 4 clean.  The only way they could maybe improve this figure is with some added articulation, but otherwise it isn't too bad IMO.  I saw the clean trooper on two occasions, right when this wave was released, at 2 different Wal-Marts.  I picked up one each time, and also an extra for a friend of mine.  So I have 2 clean and 2 dirty in my collection...I saw the dirty one on a few other occasions, but that clean one has to be one of the harder figures to come across from the modern line....judging from others' opinions/reports.

I only saw the clean Biker Scout on a couple of occasions way back when.  The diry Biker Scout was a little more available at retail in my area.  As far as the speculation for the troop builder pack,  one with added articulation (ability to be placed on a speeder bike) would be awesome...

I only found one clean one. I opened it gleefully. I ended up with three more Hustler-reader ones. Never have seen another clean one.

Really? It was that hard to find? I bought 5 clean and 3 dirty at three stores on the same day.the dirty was actually harder to find for me!We have more kid collecters than adult collecters around the area so a 'battle damaged' trooper sounds better to them.

So...

What is everyone's opinion on this figure now that the VTSC figure is out? I personally think it's still a sharp figure. The sculpt is still good and great for use in action diorama's. As I phase out older sculpts in favor of new ones, I'm keeping these guys around.

I have one all minty on the card I keep holding for trade bait when I need something...  I probably should just let the guy go at this point.
