Sad that I forgot I even ordered this one....good thing they send you a notice that it's going to arrive in the next month!!

My new problem is where he is going to be displayed.  I have run out of room and need to figure out some new placements of old Hasbro dolls so I can display him (can't have him by anything Hasbro, makes them look even worse!!)

He arrived!!  I must say he looks better than I expected.  His eye color is a little off (too white or something...not sure) but the interchangable hands are fantastic, the outfit is the correct color, the blaster is well done and the exclusive item (the tourniquet) is perfect.  Some pictures are below.  I am pretty much out of space so it's a good thing I can display him sitting down from his dagobah pose (sort of) because I just don't have anywhere he can stand!!

Very cool Beth.  Glad he turned out well.  I don't think any of the final products sent out by Sideshow have disappointed.

Nice pictures Beth. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the face was. This is why I never judge Sideshow until I actually see a done product. They release these production shots and everyone goes nuts over them for a while. I think they did a great job on the face. I can see what you mean about the eyes though. It's not enough for me to cry about though, so overall I'm real happy with this one.

I can't wait to see what the Leia is going to look like. I should have mine by Friday.

I'm still waiting on mine, not entirely sure why but the UPS tracking code tells me it's coming on Monday so I can't wait! This is my all-time favorite Luke outfit, so if they stopped the line tomorrow I'd be (mostly) happy.  ;D

I am writing up a review right now on this and I can't say I'm impressed with this one. The face/paint treatment is really off in my book. Too bad really - the initial images from SSC really impressed me, even the shots on the box look better than the final product.  :-\

I got mine and love it.  No complaints other than the lightsaber hilt tip broke off when I tried to hang it on his belt.

I won this one on ebay for $49 shipped, and I should get in a couple days.  I'm excited because this is by far my favorite Luke outfit.
