is something that I did not see coming which I have gladly purchased. By the way, Sideshow made a rather interesting promo video.
I have always been fascinated by the vehicles in Star Wars as a child and even now as an adult. As mentioned many posts ago that I am a hardcore trooper fan. So, getting this additional speeder bike in this scale is a must.
The size of the packaging came as a surprise as I was expecting an elongated box given the form of the Speeder Bike.
Picking up the toy, one of the guys in the shop cautioned me about the need to assemble and that it is highly fragile. That got me slightly worried as I do have the tendency to destroy things.
I went online to read reviews of collectors who experienced building this and saw similar comments about parts breaking and advice against following Sideshow's instruction manual.
All those really had me really worried as I opened up the packing and removing every single components to be assembled. However, when I looked at everything and I don't think it will be any tougher than anything else I have put together.
Word of advice from my personal experience is to install the front stabilizer the last and use the stand provided to hold up the bike.
In no time, the main components are put together. Then I had a visitor. My son had completed his BAF; the Hulkbuster.
This individual switches are a tad tricky as the instruction manual is in black and white and you will have no idea which goes where. Good thing for the Sideshow 'Apple' video above.
And, it's done with nothing broken! The details are amazing on this vehicle. A must have for all Star Wars fan and I will make do with this even if Hot Toys is to release a Deluxe or whatever version.
Interesting display stand with the moss, algae and tree stump.
