Does anyone know details on this unproduced Luke?
« on: November 18, 2017, 10:39 AM »
I found these photos years ago and saved them... but I have no idea what the context is.  Does this Luke exist in any small quantities or is this it?

There are two complete figures like this known to exist and two more that are missing heads.

Yeah, I didn't know about the bald Emperor prototype until just now!

Well that was easy.  Thanks Dale!

I wish there were knockoffs of that Luke.  I'd love to have a decent looking reproduction on the shelf.

I wonder how close the body is to vintage Anakin Skywalker for a custom version to be made.

I've seen customs made using a cast (I think) of the Vintage Anakin and the ROTJ Luke headsculpt.  Been eons since I saw that though.
