One of my favourite imperial figures.
The black and white figure looks great against the green.

Two beautiful MOC's Nick! And I definitely agree with you about the black and white against the green. That was one of Kenner's best colour choices, IMHO.

Thanks for sharing :-)

The Biker Scout, like all of Kenner's Imperial troops, is another winner. A terrific sculpt that looks like the character on screen. He comes with a unique, but accurate weapon, and we even got a Speeder Bike to race him around the living room carpet :-D. There really isn't much to dislike about this figure, although weirdly for me (as a variant collector), if I have a grumble it's about the most obvious variant we were given with this figure; the 'short mouth' version. Whilst undoubtedly a cool and different version of the figure, I am left scratching my head a bit at the choice (if indeed it was a choice and not an accident) to resculpt his mouth in such a movie-inaccurate way! Yes, it's cool to have one as a variant collector, but it certainly doesn't look quite right either!

Anyway, here are my 4 different variants, all with slightly different sculpts, including different belt buckles and straps, helmet sculpts and leg stances:

Here’s my Made in Mexico MOC with Lili Ledy figure and unique blaster. Shame it’s no longer taped but still like it.

And also my loose example.

Hers my little army of Biker Scouts, Kenner 65A and 77A. Taiwan army except for front one which is Hong Kong and my childhood card back and figure with local toy shop price sticker. I had a pleasant surprise this morning as I didn’t realise how many Biker Scouts I actually had hidden in the AT-AT. Cool figure and winner of the Forum Figure of the year back in 2017 I think?
