Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise)
« on: August 10, 2006, 01:11 AM »
Hey, I'm a new poster here... been visiting & reading for awhile and this is a very informative site.   I've been collecting Star Wars since '78 (really playing with my figures back then) and when the POTF2 line started in '95 I jumped on at the beginning.

I have every figure, and used to have each figure on each major card variation out there (meaning if the figure came on a red card, green card, FF card, different Collection # then I had each one) but I sold off most of them a couple years ago keeping only one carded sample per figure, except for my Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise figures.  I decided this would be the one figure I'd keep each carded sample I had.  No monetary or financial reasoning behind it, I picked this figure simply because it was produced on the first 3 POTF2 card-types, and it's a cool figure. So far I have:

  • Red Card, Col. 2, Rectangular bubble
  • Green Card, Col. 1, Rectangular bubble, with Foil
  • Green Card, Col. 1, SUB, with Foil
  • Green Card, Col. 2, Rectangular bubble, with Foil
  • Green Card, Col. 2, Rectangular bubble, no Foil
  • FF Card, Col. 1, SUB, "Saelt-Marie" error
  • FF Card, Col. 1, SUB, "Saelt-Marae" correction

Does anybody know of any other card or bubble variations, or perhaps figure variation?  The obvious card variations would be no Foil versions of the Green Card, Col. 1.  These would be easy enough to obtain, just purchase and peel off the Foil.  But, was a Green Card, Col. 2 version ever released on a SUB; or was a Red Card ever released with Foil and been date stamp verified?

There was also a Luke Skywalker:Trash Compactor version with no helmet and hair that looked slicked back like he just came up out of the water.  This figure was a two-pack with a removable dome Vader in a board game....I'm flaking on the name right now, but I have it downstairs.

Hey guys, thank you so much for all the answers, but I guess I should've been more specific.   Though I do have the other figures that were mentioned, I'm not too concerned with all the versions made of Luke, the character, in a Stormtrooper outfit.  I'm actually just curious about the variations, if any more exist, on the carded figure that was released in the standard POTF2 figure line.

Thank you for all the input, though.
