Wanted corrected carry forwards
« on: September 5, 2014, 09:13 PM »
Hi collectors

We have seen at black series some corrections of past line, like the Dak Ralter tvc into tbs getting his darker boots.
The TBS #21 Luke Skywalker (dagobah training) could perhaps get the correction of the current irregular hair paintjob and darker boots to differentiate them from the pants.

I checked at this blog, one unit of this figure which spots almost complete brown paint on the hair.

Maybe tvc dagobah landing Luke could get longer legs to deal with his arms.


I thought I could buy one Dagobah Luke like the one on the quoted blog, but at a mall,
in my country, after visiting 2 shops, both units presented the premature baldness issue,
which is really disgusting.


Which figures will you buy if Hasbro corrects errors in upcoming carry forwards?

Do you think is more likely to correct paintjobs rather than sculpts?


Thanks for your attention.

I'm never against "corrections".  Ceremonial Luke is a fine example of something they pretty much botched (skin color was just one of many issues) in 2007 with that figure...  The TBS one was something collectors seemed to poo poo about, but really it's so vastly superior and different, it's a major improvement.

I also can't say I'm clamoring for a ton of figure improvements either though...  I take them if offered, but really there's not a ton I care about I guess that I wouldn't rather a new alien or Rebel soldier over it.  :-\

Thanks for comment Jesse, I liked your post.

I watched some clips reviews and if my eye does not fail....
seems there are 2 versions of that #21 Luke from Dagobah.

The one without wrong paintjob on hair could come with
a darker tone of it (more closed effect of painting)

while the semi bald is more orange-light brown.
