I've only seen him at Toys 'R' Us and I was wondering where everyone else had seen him.

Never found him here in Tampa. The Bespin wave has just started showing up in numbers at the Wally worlds. One wave did go through a TRU here but I missed it. Don't know if Bloody Luke was with it.

I found one at TRU not long after they were released. There was only 1 bloody version and about a dozen non bloody. I have yet to see another bloody Luke.

the bespin wave just started showing up here in jersey...BUT...the scalpers cleared ALL the lukes, not just the bloody ones.

I found one in May when they were first starting to show up. The card had gotten badly damaged (looked like scalper activity, it was a little too unrandom in the damaging parts - especially since I also found an Endor Soldier with him on the same day that was in perfect condition) and I had opened it without having a double.

One thing about that though, was before opening it there weren't any other variants of it that were reported, and I just had a feeling that when I opened it there would be a bunch of variations coming out on it that would make it the hardest to get, so guess what, I opened it, and around a week later the first Non-Bloody variant was reported, then a little after that the plastic peg version was reported. I've still yet to find another Bloody Luke to keep carded... (I want that one cause it's the best looking. :D)

I found mine at TRU in Times Square. It was the week the movie was released and I was the first one through the doors in the morning. Out of about 100+ Luke Bespins that were put out on the pegs I was lucky enough to snag the only one in the store.:D I don't know how but he was probably the third one I picked up and the 3 or 4 other people looking for the same thing were less than thrilled about coming up empty....handed:crazed:

I have seen about a hundred Lukes now and not a single bloody stump one.

I picked up two at TRU. I traded one for a Jorg Sacul. And I sold the other one. I prefer the flesh peg.

I had a quasi-conspiracy theory about this figure, but it's kind of been blown to hell. The majority of posts I've seen regarding finding bloody Luke had him being bought out of KB toys. I don't know why this is the case, has anyone else noticed a similar trend? Maybe KB got their alotment of these cases early from Hasbro before the figure was changed?? Regardless, mine came from a friend in Chicago who got it at.....you guessed it....KB toys. The card had been vandalized, hence it was perfect for me who opens everything. Apparently it was the only Luke there, bloody or not.

Heck, I haven't found any of the bespin wave at any of the stores around here. I had to order all my figs online :cool:, although I haven't been to any stores in at least a week or so.

My brother found two bloody stump Lukes at the KB in El Paso, TX. I've never seen them here.

I found mine at Wal-Mart so I'd guess KB just put in orders sooner than other stores.

I'm in Sarasota Florida and I got lucky way back in mid May at the local Target during my lunch break. Its the only one I have seen around here. Now the Bespin wave is showing up big time but none have been a bloody stump.

I got mine just 2 days ago in my local WAL-MART. Its insane, there was only one, kinda thrown on the floor, but to the left of the figs behind some stuff, but in view, the scalpers basically destoryed the isles, as there was nothing left, other than a few vaders, and they had just gottne new cases in..... no hans either...

I found my at Target during lunch one day, I was just sitting on the bottom of the shelf, I almost passed it by because I did not think that Target (which ususally has nothing new) would have a bloody Luke, but the second glance proved me wrong.

Kmart. And they had six. And I had no money. :cry:

I went back a couple days later and there was one left hiding behind some Mace "Howlin' Mad" Windus.

I found my Bloody Stump Luke at a TRU bin way back in mid-May. My E-mail collector friend gave me the heads-up on this one. I had no idea that they would be out that soon, but he steered me over there. I believe there were 2 left and I picked up one of them. Since then I have seen tons of Lukes, many of them the metallic hand version and a few of the nonmetallic version. I hope someone scoops them up because my local Wally-Mart just got this wave yesterday, despite the fact every other store got it weeks ago, meaning a lot of the collectors have already picked them up, just not at that store, leaving them to warm the pegs.

I've only seen two, and they were both at KB on the same day. I kept one, and the other one was messed up so I told a guy that I had left it on the pegs if he wanted it.

I think that the whole thing is an urban legend and you are all just trying to ruffle my feathers! I have seen maybe 60 or 70 Lukes and not a single bloody hand in the lot.

Watch your bloomin' language, dern punks! Ain't polite to say "bloody" in mixed company! :p

I honestly don't think this thing exists. I've seen a gazillion of the magnetic and flesh stump versions. I was originally going to wait to open the one I got (magnetic) until I found a bloody version and could swap it. But then I realized--Luke's wound is pretty bloodless, so it's an inaccurate figure.

If I find one now, I think I'll see if I can score a Jorg Sacul figure with it, since that seems to be a possible trade. :D

Alright, so I will accept that they do exist, being that I found one in a K-mart in Eastern PA.
