Unfiled report: VOTC Luke and Ben
« on: December 23, 2004, 11:45 PM »





I actually like this Luke a lot.



No doubt, this Luke was made to move...



...Giving new meaning to the term "floater". As in, I tried to flush that turd Luke (left) down the toilet, but he just bobbed there like a floater ballerina.



Which of these Luke's would win an "Ultimate Vintage Grudge Match"?



Cloaki-Wan Kenobi



Heat can really build up under those robes. After a hot day on the set, Sir Alec Guinness lets out the "bad air".



Then and now...



VOTC Luke blade (top) and VOTC Ben (bottom)



Despite their differences, the old man and farm boy can enjoy a day field dressing wild R2 units together.

Thanks guys - I forgot to mention that this is the first old Ben Hasbro has mad since 1995 that my kids can get into the landspeeder.

Just a little note Hasbro, my kids like it when the "action" figures fit into the vehicles you make.

Tis a shame isn't it?

The fact he can sit down is his true grace actually.  Too bad they didn't go all out on his articulation.  i think I could excuse the atrocious cloak had they done his articulation justice, and also given him NICE softgoods skirt too (like the "ties" and all that, rather than a single straight piece of fabric).

His cloak blows but it's fixable if I can just find the right fabric...  That articulation's excuseless though on a $10 figure.  Same thing for 3PO as well.
