|Imperial Sniper Vehicle|
The Imperial Sniper seems to be one of the more popular body rigs among collectors. I'm not sure why; I've always considered it the least successful of the trio. It was composed of a seat on top of which was mounted a thing that looked a bit like a hang glider.
Loose, the Imperial Sniper seems to be a little tougher to find than its two body rig counterparts; but all three of the items can be considered tough to locate in comparison to most Star Wars toys. This is because the Power of the Force line of which they were a part was cancelled rather quickly, and thus the body rigs were not on the market long and were not produced in great quantities. Unfortunately, the body rigs were released in the States on blister cards, and today it is nearly impossible to find a packaged example that does not have a yellow bubble. Collectors can avoid this problem by seeking out the European versions of the toys, which came in tri-lingual POTF boxes.
