Stupid Question About Bespin Luke(s)
« on: June 8, 2012, 10:41 AM »
As most of you know, I am a total dumbass. That being said, I was going through my collection and noticed that I have two different versions of "vintage" Bespin Luke. One is from the 2007(?) Saga Vintage Collection, the ones that came in the clamshell. But I've also got a newer, chubbier version. When did that one come out? Have there been any other figures besides Vader that have gotten resulted releases on the neo-vintage line?

Are you referring to these two figures?





The newer/chubbier version came out with the launch of the new TVC line, and was part of Wave 1; which consisted of these figures:

VC01: Dengar
VC02: Leia (Hoth Outfit)
VC03: Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit)*
VC04: Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)*
VC05: AT-AT Commander
VC06: See-Threepio (C-3PO)
VC07: Dack Ralter
VC08: Darth Vader*/**
VC09: Boba Fett*/**
VC10: 4-LOM
VC11: (Twin-Pod) Cloud Car Pilot

Hopefully that answers what you were asking.

Bingo. Weird. I'm sure when I bought the chubby version, I'd completely forgotten about the Saga version. I have way too much of this shot to keep straight. It's embarassing.

I feel your pain. I'm still trying to catalog the figures I have. It's just too many different versions of the same guy. I dare anyone to tell me the difference between all the releases of Vader over the last fifteen years.

I'm sure JesseV could manage a pretty thorough explanation.  :)
