No problem. You can see the breakdown through wave 4 (ROTS) here.

Thanks Jayson! Well there is my excuse to buy the deleted scene figures.

Luke - Best figure of the wave, my only complaint is that you can't make him look down due to a thick Adam's Apple/chin sculpt. Other than that, everything is perfect and I hope they reuse this body for the DSII Duel Luke. Oh, and I hope they give him his actual ROTJ saber and not a green AOTC Kenobi saber. ;)

As some might know, I'm a stickler for the proper matching of lightsabers to their proper wielders and this one dissappoints two-fold in that regard. It not only includes a green version of OBK's ROTS/ANH saber and hilt, but back at Toyfair, it was shown with the proper accessories and they were just available with the TAC Jedi Knight Luke.

But the errors don't stop there. On all the TLC Lukes I've seen, the belt is on upside-down so the hilt is on the wrong side.

Not the worst figure in the wave, but defintely not the best IMHO.

The weird thing about the belt is that the clip is on the wrong side, but the actual hole to attach the hilt is on the correct side, as are the two "buttons" next to the buckle on the right side.

Really? All the in hand pics I've seen, the clip and hilt are on what would be Luke's right hip (the same side as his gloved hand) - which would be wrong.

I just love how the DESERT STORM deleted scene figures are pretty clean. You would think they should have some weathering on them to show they are in a storm. That is just about my only problem with this wave though. chewie is still my favourite from the wave BUT I would have prefered at least some sign of weathering.

Weathering, or lack there of, seems to be the the major issue with almost all of Hasbro's Stuff lately. :P

Except for the Clone Wars figures... they've got weathering in spades.  ;)

Funfact: Yarna's head and Bane's head have the same size ball joint. You can stick Yarna's head on Bane's body to make an interesting looking custom.

I picked up another TLC Luke today (the one on the right) and there is definitely a difference between the 2 I have - note the belts:

Are any of your figures First Day Of Issue Jayson? My Luke is, and his has the upside down belt you mentioned (which I honestly didn't notice or care about until you mentioned it). I'm wondering if the "regular" figures have the corrected belt while FDOI don't. Looks like I'll have to try and track down one of these corrected versions.

That would be me!  I have a FDOI upside down belt like Jay mentioned and a non FDOI Luke with the corrected hip on the right.
