So when I look & see Jedi Luke, also DX Series for the same price.... I'm confused. There is no mention that it is Hot Toys (and I'm assuming it's not due to the lack of fanfare - and to be honest the reduced awesomeness of the figure). Why the same price if it's not the same collection? Different scale?

EDITED: Looks to me like he's 18" tall. That would explain that.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Yes... that's Sideshow's Premium Format line not related to the Hot Toys line.

My first thought was Hellboys going to be pissed. lol



I wasn't going to but I'm thinking about pre-ordering it now. I didn't realize about the moving eye system integrated into the head. That's so cool.

The eye-system is great. It does help to customize the expression. My Jack Sparrow has it and it works beautifully.  :)`

Don't forget... Bespin Luke is actually 2 figures. Twice the fun!

I can't wait to see the final version of the Hot Toys Avengers Hulk. He's huge!!!!!!!

Yeah two figures, and all those accessories, and light up lightsaber definitely makes it worth the price.

After much delay Bespin Luke has finally arrived!

He is (or should I say they are) spectacular. The detailing is amazing and both the "clean" and "battle-worn" versions live up to my expectations. The antennae array is cool (and large) and I'm a bit disappointed I have nowhere to display it properlyat the moment. There are tons of little accessories for posing variations and you almost wish there were 3 or 4 bodies in the box to make use of them all.

That being said, I kind of wish they had designed Luke differently... I mean Bespin Luke has so many possibilities that I would have been happier foregoing the second torso in favour of the iconic orange flight suit and a little Yoda for the Daggoba training scenario. I'm sure that would have pushed the already high price tag up a notch though.

Perhaps it's a testament to how well these Hot Toys Lukes are done... the fact that I'm wishing for so much more. I'm seriously jonesing for a Hot Toys Vader and Yoda now.

Hot Toys has done Batman vehicles... maybe they'll whip up an X-Wing to totally round out my ESB dreams.

I'll see if I can get around to taking pics this weekend.

The only one they've done, and yes I know they're not the same scale. My buddy just set up his SS Vader further behind in his display with the Luke on its stand at the forefront. It sort of mask the difference in size. It looked cool so until SS comes out with their new Vader I'm gonna run with what I got.  :fight:

Plus that weather vain is just full of so much awesome.

I've been collecting Hot Toys and Sideshow since 07 but, now finally we get some really good quality Star Wars characters from Hot Toys, guess its time to flip my SSC Bespin Luke, can't wait to see what they do with Anakin as a DX then Han afterwards.
