    How far off is the POTF 12" Speeder Bike and rider from studio scale? The pics I've seen of the ILM guys manipulating the bikes for blue sceen look close to this toy.

    Just curious.

    Do you have any pics of this version or a link to a place that have them for sale? I would love to see a pic of the 12" version.

    Hmm, hard to tell from the pics, it looks a bit rough though. Do you know how long the toy is?

    No idea about the length, but I was sure some people here had one and would reply. I'll try to grab one off Ebay and measure it myself.

    Treadwell,

    I'll dig but I believe the measurements are in the Chronicles book. I maybe way off on this but I'd love to get a comparison measurement just to make sure. Please post an overall length whenever you get a chance.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    It would be very easy to get the right measurment if somebody have a good picture of the back, the "thruster shields" were kit bashed from the Tamiya Flackvierling kit so one could use those for size reference.

    *, funny in a way. I thought it might be too small. Back to the drawing board.

    I believe that only one studio scale was used.

    I got the pics!

    I was wrong about the plates though, they are not from the Flackvierling kit.

    Yeah, I was sure too but the shields didn't match up with the pic (the one with Luke on) that was e-mailed to me.

    I could have sworn that the Flackvierling armor plates were the corect parts but the photo proved me wrong.

    Steve.
