Joining the Militaries of Star Wars Sixth Scale collection, Sideshow Collectibles has announced details of the Imperial Probe Droid. First introduced in the opening scenes of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, this tenacious spy sets intergalactic war back in motion upon locating the Rebel Alliance base, hidden on the icy surface of the planet Hoth.
