TFA FO Elite Stormtrooper Scout
« on: October 15, 2015, 07:03:47 PM »

I have updated the FO Elite Scout. 
I cut off the holster from the actual Elite Stormtrooper's leg and cut up my General Weir's leg a little and bascially modded the holster onto it.  Now I'm actually really happy with him and he's now my FO Elite Scout Trooper.  The strap on the leg works perfectly as it makes it look like the holster part is strapped on with the strap as the actual FO Stormtroopers have armor there with the holster being part of the armor.

I love Speeder Bikes so when the FO Speeder Bike was revealed, I was really happy.  Only wish the trooper had more articulation.

I took my leftover parts from my General Weir and put some of the Elite Stormtrooper stuff on him.  Now I have an SA Trooper to ride my FO Speeder Bike.

Sorry the lighting isn't too good in the pics







On the bike:

That looks SOOOO much better than the figure that came with the vehicle.  Very nice work!

Thanks guys.  I found my Speeder Bike stand too so now I can display it with that.








Just for those wondering, based on the youtube videos I saw, it seems that the reviewers think the rear flaps don't open and close and you have to actually pop them up and reposition them, they actually flip up and down just like the previous speeder bike so don't know what they were talking about and why theirs couldn't do it.  Here's some pictures to show that.

Finally cut up the Speeder Bike stand.  Now my Speeder can be displayed nicely without it floating up too high.  The display stand was just cut and glued so it doesn't look that nice, but hey, it's clear and it does it's job. :)






Just for fun, with a Stormtrooper posed in front of it.

Well, here's my BS 3 3/4" Squad Leader with a backpack.

With my other versions of Stormtroopers.  I have way too many officer types for my regular FO Stormtroopers...haha.
