This Rebel Fleet Trooper was released during the POTF2 series in July/August of 1997. Back in those days, Kenner went with a buffed-up, Schwarzenegger type look, and this figure is a prime example of that. Not only is Rebel Trooper He-Man sized, but he's also very tall, and uses He-Man sized weapons. The Rebel Trooper's helmet is not removable, and the holster can not hold a weapon. The figure has the basic 6 joints, which was normal for back then. Kenner went with a slightly predefined stance, the left leg is a bit ahead of the right one, which makes it a challenge to have the figure stand by itself without falling over. There are holes though in both feet if you want to place him on stand. Both over-sized weapons fit into the Rebel Trooper's hands. The paint job is very basic, and Kenner used a brown color for the pants instead of a gray as seen in the movie. Another error is the communicator on top of the helmet, it's on the right instead of the left side. Overall, it's a very underwhelming figure with balancing problems, inaccurate paint applications, super-sized weapons, and a He-Man like appearance.
Aboard the Rebel Blockade Runner, Rebel freedom fighters begin their defense against an Imperial invasion.
