Yeah, Yavin Luke is a head-scratcher... they just need to do Yavin Han properly, or Leia, even.

Actually I wanted Yavin Luke...   :-\  Not even a total redo, as I think the 30AC figure is a fine base figure in every way, but I would like a better headsculpt and skin tone...  That one, even with a better skin tone, would've sufficed.  But yeah he looks pasty and sick.

Giving him the proper gun wouldn't hurt either.  He's sporting a blaster ala Leia's, not a big ole Han-type pistol.  I gave mine one of the few tiny Leia sporting blasters I had.  It fits the holster ok actually.

I'm very in the dark on lightsaber hilts...  I know some guys notice that stuff right away, but I never do.  I always figure Luke's and Vaders were so similar...  and usually the black deco on Vader's is so light that it looks enough like Luke's (for me).

Though I get people not liking that...  Can't argue with their issue with it.  I just never seem to nice.

I'm okay with both - I just wish Vintage had stuck around long enough to see them on Vintage cardbacks - after Wedge, the other pilot I've wanted most on a Vintage cardback was Biggs.

Toss in Clone Pilot and it's pilot overkill.

I just rarely buy the ships...so pilots interest me less than some folks.

Movie please. 

Like I said I'm lazy.  And I am at a conference for the real job... Internet is too slow for google or wookiepedia.

That's why the jacket should be removable...but won't be.

Hell, they gave Walrusman alternate arms, they could do something similar with Luke to give us a removable jacket. Though it wasn't in the movie, so I'm not expecting it.

Well, looking back at the TWO Biggs Darklighter figures from 2007 (Pilot Biggs & Toschi station Biggs), I think that the pilot figure was the stronger of the two.  I'm game for a re-do of that deleted scene Biggs.  It was cool to get that deleted scene Biggs in 2007, but the figure was a little on the weak side.  And with Hasbro going into that deleted scene territory because  the Saga on Blu-Ray finally gave us an official look at those deleted scenes, a resculpt of Toschi station Biggs would be pretty awesome.

All of that being said, I could see the potential for Hasbro to throw us a curveball and give us an Imperial Officer Biggs:

"You were entrusted to lead the Republic." - Vote for Ven Zallow from THE OLD REPUBLIC in figure polls!
