Vintage Hoth Luke was weird to me. He's got a little weird pose to his feet even. Not many vintage figs had that to them. I had a little army of Luke's for officers before the modern line came about. He wasn't one of my fav vintage figures though, not by a longshot.
And it is odd he came with a rifle and not a pistol/saber. The rifle should've come with the Hoth Soldier... Go figure.
I thought when the last Hoth Luke figure came out, that Hasbro had made improvements... But like so many others, he's lacking a bit of articulation and he's a bit tall too, for a Luke figure. Nice sculpt, but not a lot else. Pretty much like Hoth Han.
So I'm hopeful Hasbro will whip up a new Hoth Luke, as that's one I've wanted now for a while. He's really one of the last "Main character" resculpts that needs the most work too. Like Hoth Leia, I assume it's just a matter of time.
I will say though, if they don't beef up the articulation, I'll be disappointed. That one without ball-jointed hips is going to sting because you know they're just going to either do him again with the hips, or never make him able to ride teh Taun-Taun. So if he comes out and lacks the hip joints, I'll be disappointed in it regardless.
I will say though, I'd gladly re-buy this with a wounded headsculpt, and a clean one. I'd dig the obvious updates too, such as a removable helmet, working holster... I think a cloth scarf could be a cool addition too. I added one to a Hoth Soldier and it rocks IMO.
Hoth Luke though, is one of those last remaining resculpts that really needs knocked out of the park I believe.
