Commander Appo Rides In Style With Hot Toys 1:6 Scale BARC SpeederJose Lopez
While every Sixth Scale collector knows that Hot Toys absolutely loves making Star Wars Troopers, they’re also aware that the company doesn’t make many 1:6 scale vehicles. Well, it looks like some things are staying the same, but others are certainly changing. The latest announcement celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Attack of the Clones is the preorder for not only a new Clone Trooper figure, but the inclusion of a BARC Speeder he can ride on as well!
Clone Commander Appo will allow for Star Wars collectors to further fill the ranks of their Sixth Scale Clone Army. The figure will include the standard accessories like swappable hands, a blaster pistol and rifle. While the Commander doesn’t come with an alternate unmasked portrait, collectors can likely just swap on a standard Clone head from another figure and it will work just fine.
The BARC Speeder, which the Troopers used for escorting and scouting missions in the shows and films, looks amazing and is indeed in full 1:6 scale. I love that Hot Toys is delving into more vehicles, particular in their Star Wars line. Many displays around the world will look even more dynamic thanks to these impending releases.
The Hot Toys Commander Appo with BARC Speeder Sixth Scale Collectible Set is available for preorder now and is slated for release in Q2 – Q3, 2023.
【Star Wars: The Clone Wars™ – 1/6th scale Commander Appo™ and BARC Speeder™ Collectible Set】
Hot Toys is excited to be expanding its Star Wars collectibles line up today by introducing a greatly detailed 1/6th scale collectible set featuring Clone Commander Appo and a 501st Battalion BARC Speeder inspired by the popular Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series!
A clone trooper in Republic service, Appo took part in a number of critical battles during the fight against the Separatists. In the final days of the war, Appo accompanied Anakin Skywalker to Coruscant’s Jedi Temple as part of Order 66 to eliminate all the Jedi…
The BARC speeder gave a clone troopers increased operational range, great speed, mobility, and firepower otherwise unavailable to the foot soldier. A more aggressive and bulkier design than slimmer speeder bikes used by the Jedi, the BARC speeder was used in scouting and escort missions on a variety of worlds.
The highly-detailed collectible figure is specially crafted based on the appearance of Commander Appo. It features beautifully crafted Clone Trooper armor and helmet, skillfully tailored outfit, a blaster rifle, and a display base!
As for the new 1/6th scale BARC Speeder, it measures 68cm in length and features detailed mechanical structure, beautifully paint application with weathering effects, articulated handle bars, and a rocky themed base.
Enhanced your Star Wars display with this fantastic collectible set of Appo and BARC Speeder!
