Nice battlefield capture of the laser skiff!  I guess the story on it is that Luke used it to fight off the Wampa base invasion, but Hasbro should definitely look at releasing it in a deluxe set somehow.

Where exactly is the Luke fighting off the Wampas thing documented?  I'd like to check it out!

Everything I'd eve read on that was that R2 uses his whistling to attract them, and they're lured into the safe-room they're kept in and which is marked off, till 3PO rips the "warning" sign off and Snowtroopers wander in while invading the base.  I'd like to hear any expansion on that story that exists and where it's from though.

The shot of Luke with the cannon is just a promo shot.  I do wnder how that hover tank never managed to even get in a single shot from the film.  If Hasbro wants smaller, "aggressive" vehicles, this could be super cool. Make the Hoth one with a Rebel soldier, and paint one with camo and put it out with a retooled Rebel Commando..I'd buy both.

T-Bone's Site is full of awesome cut scene info with photos. I love for LFL to produce a book with all this info from all 6 films.

Yes - it would be an awesome deluxe vehicle.  They could do three different color schemes, one with a Rebel Fleet Trooper, one with a Hoth Rebel, and one with an Endor Rebel.

I've seen T-Bone's site for sure, but I've still never seen anything that documents that scene in a script...  Just the whole sequence of the Rebels fighting them and R2 luring them away.  I still wonder about that Luke scene.  It's weird too, that Luke is in two shots, one with his helmet and one without it...  It's odd.  If it's a shot scene, you'd think there'd be script notes for it somewhere.  ???

New mini rigs era, they can update or re-release pdt 8 with a generic pilot.

I think the tech with the Yavin sledge could satisfy people not interesed in the other two repaints or kitbashses; but on the other side, the buyer lose the opportunity of getting a complete battle pack.

cut scenes from that sequence would be enough to get me to buy a blu-ray version of the films-

I should probably pick a 6 more of this guy. I really do not want anymore carts and this is a cheaper way to army build.
I have 5 already and would not mind have 5 more. I am holding out for him to post other figures to make the order more worthwhile. His shipments always take really long and he has messed up my last 3 orders...

It looks like W6 and the Cart are not too far off.

The picture of Luke (with the helmet on) manning the gun is in the Making of Empire book.  The text accompanying it says:

Quote
Hamill posing with a big gun in another rarely seen publicity photo--actually a laser ice-cutter, which Luke would've used to battle wampas in scenes that were never filmed.

Apparently it was supposed to be what they would have used to cut the hallways and tunnels out of the ice or something.

I went for 5 more of these guys and a Skiffmaster. I will now have 10 of this guy so I am pretty content now.

BTW the Hoth Rebel Head fits perfectly on this body so you can quickly customize these guys with some beardo heads and vice versa.
