LUKE SKYWALKER (Yavin) the BEST Likeness ever!?!
« on: February 05, 2008, 10:36:43 PM »

I was looking at some customs on Yakface and one customizer (Jeditaz) did a repaint of the 30th Anniversary Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) and for the first time, I believe HASBRO has nailed Mark Hamill's likeness in 3 3/4"!?!  It is hard to imagine, this pasty, horrible figure, with only they eyes and hair (poorly) painted, as being any good, but take a look.  (I've attached a face pic)

I decided to make my own new Luke Stormtrooper using the Yavin Luke's head.  A little medium fleshtone, and some hair and eyebrows and WOW!!!  (I've attached a pic of this too!)  Now I hope Hasbro darkens up the plastic on this mold and uses it again....it is great!

(Now I am not sure if the pictures have attached, so Jeditaz's customs can be seen...about half way down the page....here:

It's a pretty good sculpt, I agree... but they need to tone down on the poofy hair...

Every true Star Wars fan is a Luke Skywalker, looking at his twisted, evil father, and somehow seeing good.

Trust me.

You should submit those photos to Hasbro for the next Q&A so they realize what they need to do if they ever want to use that sculpt again. I agree that the look is pretty good but boy that paintjob was pathetic...

Bring back Star Wars and Marvel SA 3.75" at reasonable prices, Hasbro...
