Excellent rendition of Luke pilot. Looks a bit taller than tlc snowspeeder pilot, the face seems to nail Mark Hamill likeness.
A definitely must have for the collection.

Huh, I thought the exact opposite. Looks monkey-armed, and although it's hard to see, looks like they're using the 06 Vintage X-Wing Pilot Luke headsculpt rather than the superior Bespin Luke headsculpt from the ESB wave. Hopefully it's because of the angle.

Looks ok, but once again hasbro is doubleing up with a figure thats already on the pegs. Is there not already a pilot Luke out there in the Legends line? It doesn't really make sense to have another one, they really need to get a new assortment of Legends out I think.

Yes, but by the time this figure hit pegs, there will probably be a new assortment of Legends out there so this probably would be "competing" against the Snowspeeder version.

I welcome this one but the angle does make his arms look a little long. Not sure if it's the shot but I like the figure overall. Guess I can retire my custom one.

I cannot wait to see the card back to see what figures are next!

Looks good thus far.  I really like the vintage card art work on this one.

Too clean.

I think the arms look long because of the perspective. Look how time the boots look.

Yeah, it looks too clean.  But the saber looks white also.  Maybe this is a packaging test of some sort.

I've been wanting this one for a long time, and this is the sort of retooling/parts upgrade that I totally believe in.

Adding a dirt was is a piece of cake so of all the deco to skimp out on I am cool with that. I am really digging this the more I see it. I would not mind a new General Lando the old one is really dated. At least the Lando Skiff still looks good aesthetically (not the head but it's covered). I agree with the General attire 3.0 first.

I like it, but the arms look possibly a tad long.  Could be the picture though so either way I think it's a neat slightly different costume variation, kind of like Hoth Hangar Han...  Sure he's only in this outfit specifically for a brief moment, but I'll take it.

I hate the non-worn decoes on Luke's helmets though.  Hands down they've never done that helmet's deco justice since the Titanium figure's.  It should really be a mess and all Hasbro's current ones are sparkly clean.

I'm kind of with you. It's just Snowspeeder Luke without the gloves. Could think of a hundred other figures to do first.

I know I've done my share of Rebel pilot bashing the past couple years, but I say bring this one on!  It's got more variety than simple head swaps due to the new arms (which do look long, hopefully it's just the angle) and should look good in our Dagobah scenes.  Plus I like the idea of more pilots without gloves for dioramas, maybe working on their ships and whatnot.
