Yeah, which if that's the case I'll be passing on this set I believe. Hasbro's making it really easy to give up being a completist if this is indeed the figure pack-in they're planning. Unless it had the R5 unit and that R5 was one HELL of a figure, then I'd be thoroughly disappointed by that pilot hack job.
Luke's short... Luke's Scronny... His body doesn't match the rather tall and larger build of Red Leader (Hell, check out the shots of them together in the SE footage that was put into ANH). So the body's all wrong... And again, any pilot with a molded on helmet at this point is just wrong. I mean, they have Porkins' helmet sculpt to use... They have Wedge's helmet sculpt to use... They have Cinema Scene Wedge's body sculpt to use...
Make a friggin' head for him and be civil to the people who wanted a Red leader figure. It'd be odd that Gold Leader got a brand spankin' new figure and Red didn't since Red even had a moment of interaction with Luke outside of his ship.
That sure looks very prototype to me though. The coloring of it is very reminiscent of a test shot sample that hadn't been hand painted yet. Getting such vibrant color from resin casts isn't a small task either really, and I speak from experience. I somehow have a sinking feeling that is indeed the upcoming Red Leader figure.
