Am I dumb for thinking the Luke is the best looking thing in this wave?

No....not for that!   :P

Sorry...I just couldn't resist that one!

The Luke is a great looking figure!  Definitely getting one for my snowspeeder!

I was disappointed to see in the same response that confirmed the Snowspeeder Luke that a new Han in carbonite isn't in the works.  Drat!

It'd be nice if a Carbonite Han could be included with a better Leia as Boussh. The 2006 TSC version was way too tiny, but it was okay....

The Snowspeeder Luke is indeed very impressive. And was he wearing the skull cap in the ESB? Was it featured on the Snowspeeder Luke from the 2007 Ultimate Battle Pack?

Nope, no cap on the Luke from the UBP and he did wear one in ESB, but you never saw him with the helmet off.

ESB was on lastnight on Spike.  When Luke gets into the speeder with Dak he isn't wearing the skull cap and he puts the helmet right on as he's taking off.  He doesn't take his helmet off until he lands on Dagobah.  So it might be on under the helmet, but like Anton said, you never see just the skull cap.

Yeah, it's just a case of different filming times and editing.  He has it on when he's in the Snowspeeder; see here:

Holy ****balls, nice eye to catch that! I never knew he wore the cap.
I am very stoked about that figure. All We need is a new Dak, Snowspeeder and AT-AT!

I see GH has some hi-res images up of this wave.  This has to be one of my favorites of the year.

This wave is great but I wish they painted Willrow's belt. I love the photo of him, did they use Little Richard as the base?

This wave is great, I am really diggin that Snowtrooper!

I'm not a wild fan of the Snowtrooper actually.  I much rather would've gotten a McQuarrie Hoth Rebel as their uniforms are quite cool, and the Snowtrooper has no counterpart like the Stormtrooper does.  My concept shelf feels lopsided.   :D

Yeah, since we already got a concept Snowtrooper last time, another one this year seems odd.  I guess I would have preferred a concept Hoth Rebel or concept Lando instead too JJ.

He does look like a cool figure, just not one I really needed/wanted I guess.

I like the new one much better than the TAC one. I never liked that figure, this one is cool enough to army build with. One figure that did not need an update was the AT-AT driver. I was quite content with the Saga one and thought they nailed that figure. I would have rather seen an updated Dagobah Vader with a removable Luke face or a third Bespin Foo-Man-Chho Guard that this dude.

Couldn't agree more on all counts Jack.

The evolution presented in esb Luke snowspeeder give me hope about new releases, like a Luke without skullcap and the actual look of the character. In other wave, they could launch the Dagobah X Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker (Attakus made an accurate prototype in the metal figurines diorama of Dagobah) :)

THIS. The new AT-AT driver might be super articulated but he looks way too skinny. And don't even get me started on the removable helmet...

Actually, looking over this wave I might just pick up Luke, Willrow and Zuckuss and save some serious cash.

That waist still doesn't look articulated to me, just like the last version.
