Star Wars Assault Walker Figure Review
The bad guys have to have the top of the line in weapons and vehicles if they’re going to squash any sort of uprising. The ground force, known as the Stormtroopers in the movie, know how to quell any kind of resistance so that they can maintain order.
The vehicles these characters have are some of the coolest items in the Star Wars line. Take for example, the Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-inch Vehicle Assault Walker. Fans won’t ever forget the first time the original Walkers were introduced in the Empire Strikes Back.
Over time, these Walkers have evolved. They get their name from the fact that they walk upright on legs. The legs on this assault walker resemble the legs of a bird with talons on the end of them for the feet.
This set comes with the limited edition Stormtrooper and this design is similar to the original Stormtrooper configuration. This figure is made of white molded plastic with touches of black in some areas.
The white face helmet has the dark sunglasses type design over the eyes. The figure has the plastic molded belt and black gloves. This one also has a black shoulder piece that extends on the right shoulder.
His head is on a ball joint and does have the ability to turn to the left or the right and will pop off if you want to remove it. The figure is well sculpted with plenty of attention to detail.
He comes with a Stormtrooper blaster. The figure can carry the blaster on his side or hold it in his hand. He has the ability to stand on his own and he can fit comfortably in the seat portion of the Walker without falling out.
The Walker has a lot of detail sculpted all over the body as well as the leg portions, plus, it does have moveable joints at the top of the legs, at the knees and at the feet. This gives the vehicle the ability to move forward or backward whenever kids play with it.
The vehicle also has a turret system that’s mounted on the front. This is made of molded plastic, but it has the ability to move. It can turn all the way to the left or all the way to the right, plus it can face forward.
The turret doesn’t have the ability to fire any weapons or missiles and there are no projectiles included with this set. The Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-inch Vehicle Assault Walker does have an antenna on the back of it that’s stationary. The color theme of the Walker is the military gray, but it has a camouflage portion in the front of it.
