Star Wars Rebels Ezra's Speeder & Imperial Speeder

I haven't been able to get to my new figures of late. Sitting on a huge backlog and there's nothing I can do about it at the moment. Anyway here's something from awhile back which I didn't put up. A couple of Speeders from Star Wars Rebels. Patience paid off for these two. I managed to get them cheap!

A quick look at the figures first, starting with Ezra Bridger. Ezra is an all new figure surprisingly.  

It's easier to illustrate with a comparison pic. The most telling difference would be the sculpted hook and pouches hanging from his belt. The head sculpt too is new. His face is a little larger and rounder. 

Another difference is the injury he suffered on the left side of his face.

He comes with his lightsaber. 

Which may carried on his person.

The AT-DP pilot is the included figure with the Imperial Speeder. He too is an all new figure. 

This figure is slimmer compared to the one that came out previously. His helmet has less painted detail and the colours of his uniform are different. 

The AT-DP pilot comes with a blaster rifle which we've seen before with various Imperial forces.

Now for the Speeders. Ezra's Speeder is green in colour, as seen in an episode of Star Wars Rebels. There's great sculpted detail on the Speeder. Good paint detail too. The Rebels logo was well done. I like that some of the paint is scratched up to give it a bit of a worn look.

The Imperial Speeder is basically of the same mould as Ezra's Speeder. There's one big difference and that is the missile launcher on the side. The Speeder did not have a launcher on the show. I doubt the Speeder would be balanced with one. The launcher is a cool feature for the kids.

Click images to enlarge. Check out the textured seat. Very nice! Other features of the Speeder include movable controls handles. 

There's a compartment at the rear for storing items. 

They even thought of a place to store the blade of a lightsaber.

The distance of the pedals from the seat is adjustable. In this way a taller person such as Kanan may use the Speeder. Female characters may use the Speeder as well however they are not able to grip the handles. 

The Speeders are cool! I'm really pleased with them. More so getting them at a discount I leave you with some action scenes.

Thanks for viewing!
