Anything look familiar to you guys?  ;)



I wish they would release some of these guys.

I love the chest that comes with Luke. I wish the accessories came out though.

I'm glad they never released that set above.  Look how buff the guy is, AND  his pants are wrong.  Those guys wore long bants over their boots.  I'd rather no figure than an incorrect one.

But those accessories... I'd pay $10 for those easily.

For both Hem and Momaw,

BLUE cup has the earlier date stamp.
CLEAR cup has the later date stamp.

So, they started Blue, but are being changed to Clear.

I wonder why, unless it was just to cut a very miniscule paint ap out of the mix?  Clear'd be the (oh so very slightly) simpler in production...  Unless perhaps the paint ap to the cup itself is leaving residue on the figure's hand or some such...  It happens from time to time.

If I were a smuggler or other assorted low life, and if I actually drank, the last thing I'd be ordering at a cantina is milk, blue or otherwise. Unless Beru had a drinking problem. :P

Well, clear cups will help with diaramas. Some of those aliens quickly finish their drinks so Wuher can pour them another.

I just checked the Entertainment Earth site to see if this wave has arrived yet (I ordered a case as soon as they went on the site). It now shows a ship date of July...
I hope they didn't underestimate the demand on these figures as badly as they did the UGH-   ::)

Man oh man, Hasbro just cannot get the likeness down on Tatooine Luke, particularly the head.  Just look at this series of disasters:



From the left: Looks too old, on crack, on crack, on crack, stoned, doesn't look like Luke.

This is a wonderful rendition of what 40 wasted collector dollars looks like. 

I think I bought the first version, and laid off the next 5.

No one, Hasbro, Sideshow, midicom..., no one seems to be able to get Mark Mamil's head sculpt right.

I actually thought that the Hoth Attack Luke was pretty good... though most of his head is covered and his face a little Wampa-mauled.

But I agree, how hard is it to get Mark Hamill correct, or even close? That's why I've avoided buying Luke most of the time. Hasbro seems to have problems with Natalie Portman as well.

Mmm, yup.  Leia too, for the most part.

Yeah, but the first five are basically the same exact headsculpt, are they not?  Really the only differences between them are the paint apps. 

There's also the first POTF2 Luke, Early Bird Luke, VOTC Luke. . .  You could even throw in the POTJ Luke X-Wing, which is a ANH-era headsculpt. . .  None of them have captured Hamill's 1976 face particularly well. . .
