teach me some basic info on biker scout and snowtrooper variants please?

Postby pizzathehutt » Wed Feb 01, 2017 11:18 am

A friend of mine has some spares for sale pretty cheap (almost beater condition)

quite a few of those are biker scouts and snowtroopers and I noticed one of the biker scouts having a shorter mouth and the snowtroopers eyes some being connected and some split.

are these particularly rare?

what else should I be looking out for? would it be worth me picking them up for a couple of quid each?

any advice would be much appreciated

Thanks

short mouth biker could be a ledy worth about £20-30 depending on condition. snap it up for couple of quid for sure :-)

For a few quid- variants are awesome :)

I suggest getting one of each main 'mould family' For Biker Scout: Taiwan, Made in Hong Kong, Hong Kong on boot. Then no CoO- which can be 'skinny limbs' or Ledy. Made in Macao & Made in with a scar (no CoO) are the tougher to find.

Snowtrooper: 'Made in Hong Kong' on thigh, Made in China, 'Hong Kong' on thigh, No CoO on thigh) , Hong Kong on boot & no CoO on boot.

Anyone ever seen a Biker Scout that has a small white dot at the bottom of the mouth piece ?

I think that's where the black paint has rubbed off the raised bump at the bottom of the mouthpiece.

Wish I could get a photo to upload to this site - they never work for me no matter how I try !

Looks like a painted dot right at the bottom of the mouth piece slot, wierd, but looks deliberate.

Anyone care to hit me on messenger and see if I can show a pic ?
