Was Nik Sant seen in Return Of The Jedi? He sure was! Not only was he seen in his Endor Rebel Trooper outfit, but he was also very briefly seen standing in full Biker Scout outfit while putting the Biker Scout helmet over his head. If you blink you miss the moment, pay close attention when Han, Leia and the rebels enter the bunker for the first time! He later can be seen standing in the middle of all the rebels captured in front of the bunker. The action figure itself is based on the VOTC super articulated Biker Scout action figure, which is fantastic in every way. Not only is it super articulated, but it shows the character the way people rememeber it from the movie, incl. a blaster holster on the right side of the boot. It's the first time that a Biker Scout figure was released with a removable helmet, versions prior to this one only had flip-up visors. The figure is made out of good quality plastic, stands securely on its own and Nik Sant can hold the Biker Scout blaster tightly without the help of a little plastic rubber band. Overall, Nik Sant is a great addition to any Endor diorama and pretty much is the main reason why you should go and buy the Shield Generator Battlepack! Kudos to Hasbro for releasing such a great side character!
As the fighting between Rebels, Ewoks and stormtroopers surges around them, Han Solo and Princess Leia try to get inside the Imperial bunker that controls the shield generator. The second Death Star can’t be destroyed until Han and Leia shut down the generator that’s protecting it. R2-D2 starts to unlock the blast doors, but a stormtrooper’s well-aimed shot fries the droid’s circuits. All seems lost until Chewbacca arrives in an AT-AT walker he captured. Han uses the walker’s communications controls to trick Imperial officers into leaving the bunker. When the officers step outside, they are quickly surrounded by Rebels and Ewoks. Han can finally set thermal detonators to demolish the bunker and generator. There’s no turning back for Han Solo, the smuggler-turned-Rebel hero: his loyalty lies with the Rebels, and his heart belongs to Leia. Now, everything’s riding on his ability to destroy the generator – and Han isn’t about to let a squadron of stormtroopers get in his way. R2-D2 is always ready to aid his friends. The plucky astromech droid ignores blaster fire, focused totally on unlocking the bunker’s blast doors. He’s escaped trouble many times, but fate finally catches up with him, in the form of a stormtrooper’s lucky shot. Inside the bunker, Imperial officers receive a report that the Rebels are fleeing and help is needed to capture them. Relieved that the battle has turned in their favor, the officers quickly exit the bunker – and walk straight into a clever trap set by the Rebels. Some Rebel troopers on Endor disguise themselves in the uniforms of captured or fallen Imperial biker scouts. Their Imperial attire allows the Rebel troopers to infiltrate the enemy’s position and aid the Rebel forces trying to destroy the shield generator.
