I wish they would have just done it for C-IV... Or not at all for some time...

I would have rather this version to go with my Han...

I agree... I can't think of any compelling reason to have a Ceremonial Luke- All he did was stand there and get a medal!   Also, Hasblo's version isn't a total piece of crap either....   I'd rather have had just the Bespin one.

I'm curious to see what he'll look like...but I probably still won't get one.

Now if they made an AOTC or TPM Obi-Wan....

I plan on getting one and am excited about it, but am a little mystified by why they chose to go with Bespin Luke at this time.  After ANH Leia and ANH Obi-Wan, I figured that (with this being the 30th anniversary and all), we would get another character from ANH next.  Ah well, as long as he turns out well it really dosn't matter.  I will be happy to have him.

Well, pics from comic-con look awesome!  Only minor nit-pick I have is the inaccurate collar on his jacket...other than that...

SWEET!

I guess the exclusive is the stump?  Anyway, I will have to at least pre-order it.  I may cancel down the line.  I don't want to kick myself when I see it "Sold Out" and regret it later.

That's kinda been my philosophy about pre-orders... if I'm even remotely intersted... order now... and can always cancel later before my CC is charged!

I ordered mine. Not too exicted about it. I feel like the interest in this line is falling quick. I hope they announce another big item or highly requested item soon. I am getting tired of the same character selection. We already have 3 Lukes, 2 Leias 2 Anakins and 2 Bens (I know they are very different but still).

I ordered it but I am in total agreement of something new.  I'd take a decent Lando.  I know Sidious is up the pipeline and that should be a good one but OT is my favorite subline and a good Lando is sorely lacking...

I'm with you there... we definitely need a GREAT Chewbacca as well to go with the Han!
I read in the last Hasblo Q&A that they didn't "lose" the 12" license to Sideshow, they "leased" it to them.   I have an easy time seeing Hasblo's hand in the character choices.......
