I can only imagine this is a scam in the same mold as the Hulk Buster scam a few months ago.

Don't think it's a scam. Those are the real price this hobby really costs...

The scam is when a company asks for more and we bend over and buy even though we feel the pain afterward.

I thought so. No brand name is mentioned.

They never say it is a Hot Toys or Sideshow. This one even put a 23CM on one of the picture and 23CM is no where near the size of a 12 inch figure.

SOOO many people ordered those $30 hulkbusters. Even when told it's a scam, they're like "lol it's $30 and I have paypal protection!"

And he'll get just that. Remember the the combo HT Ghostrider and Bile going for almost $400? Well, you can get a KO of that bike for about $60. Not a scam since I got one, with working led lights and all. So I think we have a similar case here

Trustpilot reviews would indicate you may receive something but it's not what's advertised:

Then again... If they send any kind of Speederbike for that price it might be worth it. I'm still leaning towards people getting nothing back for their money.

damn! I'm even willing to pay that price just for the scout without the bike.

Thats exactly what these are. Basically knock off black series figure sets. And they advertise ssc or hottoys. They do this with the black series sabers as well. And you get the plastic light up one for $20

I don't know but a 1/12 black series figure stand at just 15cm. where did that extra 8cm come from? That said, if it is 1/6, that's a tad short even for Medicom standards.
Perhaps it is a brand new 1/10 scale offerings ie Medicom RAH 220 scale... Anyway, if it isn't 1/6, I'd pass.

Years ago I had one ebay scammer buy a new mint in box figure from me and put his used one in and returned it.
Reminds me of the time in 6th grade, this fat kid named Tom - went to Montgomery Wards and tried on a pair of jeans and left his old ones on the hangar and walked out.

Because they're lying. Everything about those ads are a lie, I'd be surprised if you actually get a scout trooper of any kind.

Just getting back with an update.

This is what my cousin recieved not quite the Speeder and Scout he was promised.

Just incase you don't know it's a counterfeit "Lego" Scout and Speeder.

Ha ha ha
