Really Wai?

That's some interesting stuff...  For the carded guys, that's gotta be good news.  I know i personally it's a figure I'm not interested in, even with sorta neat packaging.

I'd like to see Hasbro take video game figures to another level though, and market the figures with the games (and later offer them thrugh the Fan Club/exclusives like you mentioned Wai).

That'd be a good way to tie the uber popular video game market to the primary marketing tool for Star Wars, the action figure line.

Looks like there might be a clean and dirty variant on this as well...

Dammit, I DON'T care.  Only one for me...  I swear...   :-\

I'd definitely be up for a few more video game figures as well, but obviously ones more original in nature.  Those, and a few of the major EU ones...

I think I'll pass.

A rescult is really in order for this figure, the more time that passes, the more I begin to wish my Scout could do more than just old a cup, or pinch something.

Then again I'm starting to really want SA on every figure, but that's just me- well, no most of us.

However, I do like the card an awful lot, but still I'll pass.

Not sure because it's not confirm yet ???

I preordered the PC version of Battlefront from EBGames.com, which lists the figure as shipping with the product. I have zero faith in getting a mint card in the container, so I'm thinking I'll hit an EB B&M next week to do the order in person for the Xbox version and see what the deal is with the stores.

I'm hearing that you can get the figure by preordering the game at EBGames for $5.

Is the figure going to ship with the game as well?

I went to my local Electronics Boutique to reserve/pre-order Battlefront this past Friday for XBOX.  When I asked the store employee if the game comes with the exclusive Biker Scout figure with pre-order, he absolutely had no idea what I was talking about. ??? I pre-ordered it anyway figuring that maybe I was a bit more informed than he was, and that they would get notice closer to the release date.  Also EBgames.com has listed all Battlefront platforms(PC,PS2,XBOX) as receiving a bonus free action figure Biker Scout with pre-order/and or in store pick-up EBgames pre-order Star Wars Battlefront.  So who knows?

An EB Games store near me had the Biker Scout on display as part of the promotion for Battlefront.  I think word is getting around about the game and the figure.

Got my Battlefront Trooper today.

I ordered from SWShop.com and actually had a good experience!

Looking at this figure, there is no way it is worth the $12 I paid after shipping, but I must satisfy my carded complete-ist habit... it comples me to do so.   :-[

Although, he does look pretty nice hanging alongside RotJ Theater Luke and Jorg Sacul.  :)
