Bio: The Rebel strike team, on a mission to sabotage the second Death Star's shield generator, falls into a trap set by the evil Emperor Palpatine. Surrounded by a full legion of stormtroopers
and Imperial soldiers, the Rebel commandos are temporarily unable to shut down the battle station's shield. (Taken from the figure's cardback.)
Commentary: The first modern release of the Endor Rebel Solider is an example of a great toy and, if the stories are true, one of the times
With only six joints, this figure is good for display fodder and he can sit nicely. If there were sensible vehicles for this one, it'd probably be worth picking a bunch up. As it stands, anyone building an Endor diorama would be well-served to buy at least one, perhaps more.
The body was used to create a repaint with a new head and removable helmet in late 2006 as part of a Return of the Jedi-themed collector tin.
Collector's Notes: Originally released in 1998, the figure was put out in a white box 4-pack as a shared exclusive around 2002. The figures were identical, but they included clear oval plastic stands which a lot of fans really dug. These are actually still available online at certain toy outlets for really cheap.
