That figure should be called "Moisture Vaporator" with Luke Accessory.


 ;D

I have to agree with you guys on the Luke.

Sorry if this was pointed out and I missed it, but GH posted some bigger pictures of some of these guys.  Luke really does look strange, especially how he's posed in the package as though his left arm's broken.  I may cave for the vaporator, though.  As for Vader, they point out that in the loose picture, he seems to have a removable helmet, which I assume makes him the Vader from the ANH tin set.

I can live with the Mace head... so many characters I think they do a bad job on the heads, and the Mace to me is about average... not great, but not horrible.  By far my favorite Mace though, I might pick up a few more... from what I can tell though, he is selling really well (so far at least).

As for the Luke, barf.  But the vaporator - hot as Bianca Beauchamp.  Count me in for several.

I don't know, I guess when you compare it to this it's not so bad:

I hope I'm just seeing things but well the unlit lightsaber hilt, which Luke has, does that look like Darth Vader's lightsaber hilt?

Sadly, my favorite Mace figure so far is still the 1999 sneak preview version.  ::)

Hasbro said in the Q&A a couple weeks ago that they know it's the wrong hilt for Luke (both this one and the Wave 2 Yavin Luke), but it's, and I quote, "a hilt that gets us pretty close. It's something that we are aware of and will be looking at for future releases.

What's the deal with the carded picts of the Stormtrooper helmet? I know it may not be final, but it looks a little fat.

Yep, my thoughts exactly... looks almost as bad as this helmet...

I'm pretty sure it is that helmet.  Unless Hasbro wants to spend more money, I think the carded Stormie and the comic pack Han/Luke Stormies are all of the same body.

The helmet is removable hence the fatty status

Yeah, but the tin helmet isn't that fatty... at least the ones I have aren't.  Maybe this figure will be better in person, but I'll be passing on it most likely (which is a good thing!).

I think they should have left well enough alone on this one, and just kept it as a non-removable helmet.

Looks like a fine helmet sculpt to me... After all, I always felt the VOTC headsculpt was underscaled. Stop nitpicking and look on the bright side, now it's to-scale!
