I always liked the original version.  I gave his rifle to the Rebel Trooper and armed him with the weapons from Bespin Luke.  Count me in as someone who really wants a new SA version, hopefully like the VOTC Hoth Han.  We know it'll be coming, it's just a matter of when.

I always liked the vinty Hoth Luke as well (really a fan of all the Hoth figures in general as a kid and adult).  This, along with Bespin Han Solo, are probably at the top of my most wanted "resculpts before the line ends" list.  Both had pretty decent previous figures - at least for the time - but I think they could be made so much better now.  I'm hoping we see one next year.  A pretty nice vintage figure though, aside from the lack of lightsaber.

Is there any rumor 2010 vintage Hoth Luke will come with removable hat?

Will this action figure come with ball joints?

I'm getting old, but I swear I saw a new Vintage version of Luke during Toy Fair.  Anyone have a picture?

You are probably thinking of the Hoth Rebel

Not much of a stretch to get to a Hoth Luke though

None of the versions made meet up and this character is as valid to be redone (properly) as it's one of the main characters.

Given the versions of Luke Skywalker that we've seen over the past year+, it seems only natural that Hasbro would revisit Hoth Luke within the next year.  The only other version of Luke that seems somewhat lacking at this point in time is a Dagobah training Luke.

Really...if they just redo the head I'd be ecstatic about this new Luke...as it is I think it just OK. I'm not a fan of the perma scarf and wish they would have went more with the Saga look

What's with the collar on the new Luke?

I didn't push it down far enough...whoops.

I'm not sure why they made it a separate piece though

It's definitely a little odd that it would be a seperate piece.
