This is the first figure that I can remember where the soft goods ruin the figure. I don't like this one so far.

I'm just not a fan of this figure, and I really want a good jedi luke!  Maybe we will get a really good VOTC one next year.

Yes, definitely better, thanks for the pic!  I still think he has enormous hands though (comparable to the size of his Schwartz  :P).  The cloth bunch-up at the knee is kinda excessive too.

Well he does have that humungous bone to hold  ;D.  Seriously he looks a lot better then I thought, but I think they should've made the DS trooper look a little more like this.

Luke's back as per our front page...  Anyone change their opinion?  I think he's looking a little better there personally but the big piece of jumbo on the back of his hand is more than a little distracting. :)



Am I the only one to notice that his eyes are rolling into the back of his head? This is Luke going all dark side, must explain his funky vest.

As I see the vest is really the only problem, it would have been better done if they had made it a one piece softgoods vest that could be easily removed. Sort of like a shirt that just pulls over the torso. Hopefully removing that hideous belt will not cause any unsightly holes or damage to the waist of the figure when it's removed to make a throne room duel Luke.

Taking a look at that picture, I don't think it looks too bad.  I'm trying to keep my hopes up for it a bit, because I've really been looking forward to a nice Jedi Luke.  Really, the vest/belt combo is what bothers me the most at that point.  Also, I don't like the "looking up" eyes, which I've seen on a few Star Wars figures the past couple years.  Otherwise, it does look super-articulated, and the use of soft goods makes me wonder if this wasn't considered to be a VOTC figure at some point.  That said, we'll probably see an all-new one in a future "vintage" lineup, which will be better than this one.   The pink blotch on the back of his hand is a little distracting too.  Overall, I'm still looking forward to it, and this picture makes the figure look nicer than some of the previous pics.

After that picture i am more upset with the figure. The eye paint is just terrible. I like that she has the wounded hand, but that is about it. I hope we get a VOTC Jedi Luke next year.

Just look at that figure!

His legs aren't as bowed out as earlier TAC figures have been. I wonder if Hasbro's been reading our posts and want to prevent all the boiling freezing Jesse got everyone doing and talking about here to 'fix' their products? Could it be they are responding with 'less open' stances now? Hmmmm

Not sure if I'd say that the soft goods ruin the figure, but I do agree that it looks bad - especially with that belt.

On the other hand, the rest of the figure looks pretty good. Love the legs (definitely going to use some to customize the DS trooper - hate that one's legs - and to do up a sitting Bith musician), and i dig the face. It's not the best, but at least it actually looks like Luke for a change ;)

I may cut the belt & cloth off & use it for post-ROTJ Luke. I guess we'll have to wait for an Ultimate Place Luke in the Vintage line.

I doubt it...  Hasbro hates me, or so I've been told in the past by some folks.   ;D
