I think it looks great.  Hope they get rid of Han's pants though.  Luke's didn't have pleats.

And I never knew Luke carried that girly Leia blaster.  I always assumed he had a macho man one like Han.

That does look pretty good - and one of the better Hamill likenesses we've seen in any of the lines so far.  Must stay away...can't afford...must stay away :).

I didn't notice the blaster at first, but would think this actually fits him more. I don't see him having anything personalized or cool as Han's. At this point i still see Luke as a farm boy willing to take whatever blaster he can get. Just a thought.  ;D

I just preordered the Yavin Luke for pick up at C4 & it went very smoothly. $54.99 with an edition size of 6000.

Yeah, the preorder took meer seconds. I ordered the Sandtrooper too, but passed on the space slug. May's gonna be expensive enough.

Managed to finally get mine too... for some reason, the actual order page didn't appear until about 1:30 EST for me.   It's the only SSC exlusive I'll order.  I've got enough display issues right now without getting into other lines and as it was mentioned, May is going to be straining the budget as is.  (Not to mention APRIL with the Endor 3-some)

For those that preordered Luke for pick up at C4, SideShow sent out an e-mail reminder that they will begin processing credit cards for this purchase on May 3, 2007. Check out the e-mail they sent.  ;)

So I finally finished unpacking from LA and opened up Luke.  First off, I notice that he has one greenish blue eye and one brown eye....not cool.  I start looking at the clothes (never knew the black shirt underneath was the tunic from ROTJ) and I notice his holster is broke, the back clip wasn't attached to the belt.  I thought his shirt underneath was just a T-shirt.  Oh well, he's articulated well (as usual for SS) and comes with extra hands but I doubt I will change to them.  It's not the best figure from them and the eyes really kill the hole thing.  I am curious if anyone else has 'bad' eyes or not.  If not, I will call up SS and see if I can get a replacement.
