Have we seen the Luke?  Is he in his Tatooine desert garb, or is this a repack of something previously released (X-wing pilot, or Luke Trooper)?

All three (Kanan, Ahsoka, Luke) were revealed at SDCC last summer (pics here).  Luke is ANH Farmboy version.

Cool!  Thanks!  I don't remember seeing that one or the Kanan one.

Cracked this wave open last night. Kanan is surprisingly well done. Good sculpt and paint apps and little details like the lightsaber disassembling and the hilt being designed to fit in the back of his belt were very cool. Ahsoka is just as great as expected, mine had really crisp paint apps especially on the lekku. She looks terrific.

Luke was a real disappointment to me though. I don't like the pink waxy plastic they used on him and Hux. I prefer the painted heads like Jedi Luke or X-Wing Luke. Plus his head looks tiny on this sculpt. He just looks weird and out of place with the other 6" figures imho. Bummer for such an iconic depiction.
I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me

It's all the sunscreen he wears.

Another negative for Luke is the lack of accessories that Han had.  Give Luke the Stormtrooper belt, rifle, floppy hat, poncho, grappling hook...at the very least the belt, hook and rifle to go with the micro binoculars.

Just a public service announcement/ad that EE put up pre-orders for singles from this wave.

If you are tired of missing out, you can pre-order 6" Ahsoka Tano for $21 plus shipping. Also pre-orders for Han, Luke, Kanan, and Snowtrooper too.
