Don't like that what is apparently a Senate Duel Yoda has the ESB pic on a ROTJ card.  Hmm.

Me either.  It's sacrilege.

I'm with you.

Same thing with ROTJ Vader figure on a ANH card for an ESB wave, huh? Gosh darn this will be an interesting year 2 years for cardbacks.

I hope the cardbacks go longer than 2 years myself but that's because I'm old.  They really did need to give Luke a different picture on the cardback but sort of figured they would use the old one.  I thought they were going to give Yoda the ROTS cardback since clearly they are going for that with the figure.  Or even AOTC. 

At any rate there are some solid figures in the wave.  I don't think it's the greatest wave ever but that Gamorrean Guard has to be one of the better figures they have ever made.  They have done some nice Jabba's Palace/Skiff figures over the years now.  Ephant Mon, Hermi Odle, Gam Guard, and some others.

I personally think the Luke figure looks too plain on the card - maybe he would have looked better actually holding his saber. Same with Wooof, but he actually takes up more of the bubble than Luke, so it isn't as empty looking.

PHOTO FROM YAKFACE, THEY HAVE A SLEW OF THEM IN.
This Luke is friggin awesome! I love how close they matched the real Vintage Jedi Look. This wave is hands down amazing! Notice the wrist articulation.

That loose Gamorrean looks totally different from the prototypes we've seen.   :-\

That's usually the case. I wonder if the water treatment or some hair styling product will work to tame the furry wrap.

Agreed. I am glad I have several of that Battle pack. I will be retiring a lot of my custom Jedi Lukes soon. This figure is the perfect base to use the Jedi Soft goods and the Poncho soft goods. This one looks like he will have no issues riding a Speederbike either.

I'm actually using the TLC Jedi Luke from last year as my Endor Luke. I recently redid my OT shelf and retired the Endor Luke from the Saga Collection. Gave all his accessories to the new Luke. Looks pretty good since the cloak covers up the horrible shoulders and upper body.

Holy crap, this Luke is awesome! The jointed wrists are a tad unneccessary to me, but, boy, will they make some great lightsaber-dueling poses!

I'm wagering the final figure will have a little better softgoods on it...  The Hasbro photos are usually still prototypes, so I'm not concerned (yet).

Love Luke...  I'm not abandoning my old ones though.  I liked the 30AC figure a lot.  I enjoyed the shirt options, and the ball/socket torso.  I may do a hand-swap, but I'll still have that figure displayed.

Rotj Yoda from this wave lacks his utility belt, which may go around his coat.

Finally a vintage-style Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi.
