Personally I like Luke... OTC exists, so for my money they were trying to deliver the Luke I wanted back when the OTC one came out. A hyper articulated "do it all" Dagobah Training Luke figure... So to that end I'm pretty happy.
I'm not a fan of the double-hinged elbow, and I would've preferred they tried to achieve a greater range of motion with their traditional ball-jointed elbows... I think they could've managed a little more motion without as noticeable a joint as they have with the double-hinge.
I hate the double-hinges on GI Joes too, personally. It allows greater motion for their knees, and that's cool and all, but I just don't care for the aesthetics.
That said, I'll take this version all day over the OTC statue... It's good for hand stands or holding his backpack straps, and that's it. This figure is just more "fun" to me.
I'm excited to get Luke maybe the most... I've waited since, what, 2004 now? That and Yoda with the cloth backpack? I'm giddy. I'm getting two of each.
