Picked up Luke and a DS Trooper tonight. They're pretty great.  :)

Are we talking about the same Luke?  Take a look at the neck up...

I think it's OK. My opinion never really jibes with the fandom-at-large anyway.

OK is a far cry from pretty great.  I have to agree with DR - that Luke head sculpt stinks.

Walked away from our local JD lunch yesterday basically with 5 more DS Troopers. I'm half way to my goal of 36.

Scored a couple of Treachery on Saleucami battle packs in a trade last night.

I actually think it's the best Ep IV Hamill sculpt we've gotten. Go figure.

I think the sculpt (haven't seen it in person, basing this on photos) isn't bad, it's the color that's off (skin and hair).  The sculpt I think, with a good paintjob, could be decent.  I wonder if VTSC X-Wing Luke would fit on that Luke body though?  That's a good Hammil likeness IMO and the color too.

The skin tones don't match. The VTSC X-Wing Luke is more tan than the Yavin Luke.

Found 2 freshly stocked wave 2 revision cases at TRU in the middle of the afternoon. Picked up the DS Troopers and the Bobas.

I picked up the Sith Infiltrator and V-Wing at Target today.  Just need the comic packs and I'll be all caught up!

Picked up the comic packs last Saturday morning at TRU. My son bought the extra of the Voss and Alpha sets. I didn't realize the Luke was SAC until I got home and looked at it more(not an opener) and because I didn't read the boards about it earlier. Geez, I bet those Luke 2 packs won't sit long.

I also picked up the V-wing via Matteo at our SOCAL swap meet up lunch
