The arms look long, but I agree it looks like its just the angle they are positioned at.  Luke's right hand is almost touching the light saber, which is a considerable distance from Luke's chest.  I'm thinking they'll end up coloring the lightsaber, but the clear one is kind of cool; even if its inaccurate...

I think the lightsaber is molded similarly to how the saber for TFU Shaak Ti was handled - very transparent blue.

How did this get past Tunghori?

Can we get unannounced TCW figures from China now too? Where do I sign up?

what're the odds of H reusing the arms for Ponda/Walrus man?

Slim to none... they love to retool parts where they have a suitable mold in their inventory.  ::) :P

Aside from the possible arm issue, I sort of like this figure as well.  We know Hasbro is looking for "new" versions of the big names (along the lines of Wave 1's Hoth Hangar Han), and as far as that goes, this is a pretty good choice.  That being said, I still hope we get an all-new Hoth Luke sometime in the next couple years here too (or maybe even a new Dagobah Luke, as neat as the OTC version was I'd take a more articulated one too).

A thought on the arms...

Look at the source image and where they line to the bottom of his jacket hanging down below the belt...

Now look at the figure's arms where they hang below the bottom of the jacket.

Those arms are definitely long.  If people had gripes on Anakin from the ROTS wave over the same issue, I cannot imagine they won't have the same thoughts on this figure.  I wonder if the same sculptor did it?

Snowspeeder Luke has the same problem with long arms. When I heard that this figure was rumored I hoped that they would fix the problem since they would have to sculpt new arms. Obviously they didn't fix it.

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.

By the way, I had almost the same thought on using the forearms to do pilot figures that aren't ready for flight, standing around working on their ships with the technicians (god willing we ever get the technicians for Hoth).

I don't think I'll need a loose one, but that will look great MOC on my wall.  :)

looks like they're using the 06 Vintage X-Wing Pilot Luke headsculpt rather than the superior Bespin Luke headsculpt from the ESB wave

MMM, it seems as this head has no extreme pointy chin like 06 Luke Pilotīs, and the hairdress is similar to tvc Bespin Luke.

Probably the perspective of the photo is upside down, so they can still show another pics

His legs are no completely from tlc snowspeeder pilot Luke, they are in some way derivated from tvc Bespin Luke: the holster, the thighs with pokets on pants. This is what make us hope this figure would be a bit taller than tlc snowspeeder Luke.

I actually like this figure! Yeah, at first glad it does look dull - but I do like the headsculpt, it looks a lot like the TVC Bespin Luke sculpt. I'm sure there's a lot of recycled parts here.
