Toyguide Update: 6″ Black Series Imperial Hovertank Pilot (TRU)

The Yakface Toyguide with our first Rogue One entry: the Toys”R”Us Exclusive 6″ Black Series Imperial Hovertank Pilot.

PROS:  Rogue One looks to have an extremely diverse range of Imperial troops in their ranks and Hasbro’s Hovertank Pilot an excellent interpretation of one of them. Unlike the lanky Deathtrooper, the Hovertank Pilot has a stockier build and a battle-warn appearance. Hasbro went above and beyond in giving this figure an in-universe look with a nice wash on the off-white armor complete with scuffs and scrapes. The articulation is what we’ve been accustomed to for this scale so the figure has no problem being posed in a wide and varying range of stances. He has no issue holding the new blaster with both hands in either a relaxed or aiming  posture.

CONS: The jury is still out whether or not the accuracy of the deco for this trooper is correct as we’ve only seen brief glimpses of the pilot in the trailers. If not, I suppose the door is left open for a screen accurate repaint in the future. This figure is exclusive to Toys”R”Us starting on Sept. 30 so he might be difficult to find initially.

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
