Was the first release (Luke Jedi) $55?

If so, that's a 27% increase...

Yeah the price jumps have been ridiculous, and its not just with the Star Wars line. The Hobbits are over 70.00 each. I am already not a completist with this line so it doesnt hurt me too much to skip a figure. I may get rid of my Bespin Luke and stick with the other 3. The only other Han i can see myself picking is a carbonite version. I never liked the Hasbro one.

I wouldn't want them to do a new Han for just the carbonite... the ESB Han should work fine... maybe just a carbonite block with an alternate head and hands?    Hasbro's first carbonite block isn't too bad... I don't like the "glowy" one

I didn't end up ordering one due to the price.  I have too many Luke's as it is and space has become quite limited.  I do agree with the comments about other characters....bring on Lando at least!!

Holy crap!  If Beth isn't buying one, I bet that brought about an emergency meeting at Sideshow about who to make!   ;D

Had to settle with the wait-list on this one.

Not any more, got notification that my wait-list order got switched over to a proper pre-order!

Now if this would just happen with the ANH Obi-Wan, I'll be all set!  ;D

My Luke shipped. Too many are shipping to close to each other.
