Hot Toys Doubles Down On The Star Wars BARC Speeder By Including A Sidecar & Clone TrooperJose Lopez
When Hot Toys does something, they certainly go all in. The Hong Kong-based toy company just announced a Star Wars Commander Appo and BARC Speeder set, surprising fans and collectors alike. Then they announced a second vehicle set, this time with a Heavy Weapons Clone Trooper that includes not only another BARC Speeder, but one equipped with a sidecar! This new Sixth Scale set is available for preorder now and looks amazing!
While I was a little iffy on Hot Toys announcing two BARC Speeder sets simultaneously, I’ve warmed to the idea, mainly based on the sidecar included here. The possibility of having four 501st Legion Clone Troopers riding behind Commander Appo on his single rider BARC Speeder is a tempting one and would make anyone’s collection look downright spectacular! Sure, you’re going to need a lot of room to pull it off, but it will definitely be worth the effort.
We can never get enough Clone Troopers, so having this Heavy Weapons variation is another welcome surprise. Army building is a dangerous proposition when it comes to Hot Toys, but I’m not sure how anyone could resist the temptation to grab every different release of these guys for their displays.
The Hot Toys Heavy Weapons Clone Trooper & BARC Speeder with Sidecar Sixth Scale Collectible Set is available for preorder now and is scheduled to release in Q2 – Q3, 2023.

An army is only as effective as its mobility, so the Grand Army of the Republic was outfitted with an increasingly varied and versatile vehicle pool as the Clone Wars progressed. The BARC speeder gave 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. They were easily adaptable, with support struts that could be added to hold a stretcher or sidecar.
The world of Star Wars collectibles is continuing to grow today as Hot Toys is thrilled to introduce an astonishing 1/6th scale Heavy Weapons Clone Trooper and BARC Speeder with Sidecar collectible set inspired by the popular Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series!
The highly-detailed collectible figure is specially crafted based on the appearance of Heavy Weapons Clone Trooper. It features skillfully developed Clone Trooper armor and helmet, a blaster rifle, a satchel bag, and a display base!
The brand new 1/6th scale BARC Speeder measures at 68cm in length and comes with an attachable sidecar armed with articulated blaster. The vehicle has detailed mechanical structure, astonishing paint application with weathering effects, articulated handle bars, and a rocky themed base for variety of poses.
This collectible set will definitely be an extraordinary addition to any Star Wars collection.
