PROS: Sideshow’s designers have captured one most iconic vehicles in the prequels to an exacting detail. The STAP itself features adjustable turret/yoke, handlebars and foot pegs to allow the included Battle Droid to achieve various in-flight poses. The sturdy display base also features an adjustable center section to allow you to tilt the STAP and Battle Droid for additional dynamic poses. The included battle droid is a redeco of their first release and molded in a slightly different color. He features plethora of articulation and is, in essence, a mini-maquette of the Battle Droid CGI model. On my particular sample, the included backpack attaches the to the droid much better as the first Infantry Battle Droids’ packs tended to fall off rather easily. The droid affixes to the STAP by way of magnets built into the feet and foot controls – an ingenious idea – and the multi-joint hands allow him to grasp the controls firmly.
CONS: Cost and displaying a piece of this size may be an issue for some and sadly the included blaster rifle still does not attach to the droids backpack.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this piece worth adding to your collection.
Sideshow Collectibles continues its series of Spooktacular Teases with the reveal of the Deluxe 1:6 scale Darth Vader figure from The Empire Strikes Back. Stay tuned for more information on this piece soon!
