I just scored a Jedi Luke from the FAO 2pack for super cheap ($5). What a steal!

Only thing is, he's missing his cloak. I was just wondering if anyone here has done a custom, or knows of any other alternative. I was thinking about making one from a Palpatine robe, but the texture is all wrong... I really want him to have a cloak!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :D

Hmm, are you sure it's the Luke from the FAO 2-Pack? The Luke: Jedi was re-issued later in the basic 12" line, without his cloak. He also came with a bone and a glow in the dark lightsaber. If I recall correctly. :)

MTFBWY and HH!!

I believe that was one of the few 12" figures I took a pass on, the reissued 12" Jedi Luke that is. The last time I saw the figure, it was clearanced for around $5, but the box was so badly damaged, I took a pass on it. Besides, I did have the Jedi/Bib FAO two pack already. If it is the reissue jpak001, at least you didn't pay a lot for it.

Naw, it's definitely the FAO version. He's got the dark hair and clear saber. I actually had the single version at one point and just wasn't happy with it (mainly because of the stupid glow saber). Ended up selling it off with about a million other toys!

I was really happy to score him for such a great price even though he's missing the cloak! I also scored a loose 12" Sebulba for $10. I was really stoked about that too!:D

Hmm, that's tough, the FAO version's cloak is pretty unique. Maybe try sewing one from the 12" Maul's cloak, that's all I can think of.

You mean green saber?

From time to time these things pop up on eBay so if your not in a hurry to get his cloak you could just keep checking.:)

what you can do is get an extra episode 1 obi-wan robe, dye it black and remove the sleeves and sew up the holes. presto! you have luke's ROTJ cloak.

i have not done this myself, but have seen one that been altered like this, and it looked really good.:)http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=toys/td-lukejedicape.jpg

also, you could get an episode 1 qui-gon robe, remove the sleeves, don't sew them, and boom!, an episode 2 anakin robe!;)

Oh yeah, I meant the clear green saber. Thanks for the suggestions guys! My best bet would probably be trying to customize a Ep1 robe (since you can still find those figs for pretty cheap).

I thought the robe was dark brown.

If you're not a stickler for details, you can easily make a robe. If I remember correctly, Luke's ROJ robe didn't have sleeves.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but has there been a 12 inch Jedi Luke in black clothes? Well, they could make one (or update it) and include the green lightsaber, a bone from the rancor pit, and then perhaps include an authentic bionic hand with a compartment showing the insides of the forearm to the hand (the rods can even move wen his fingers move) hey, if GI-Joe can make 12 inches almost exactly proportional to the real people, so can hasbro.

There was a few years back. The only 12 incher I have, aside from TC-14. He has glow-in-the-dark lightsaber, bone, removable vest, and a permanently black hand. He's pretty cool. :)

There were (2) 12" Jedi Lukes, 1 was a FAO 2 pack with Bib fortuna back in 96? Another in the Action collection with the bone and such as Mr Jabba said above, I think it was like 97. As for GI-Joe making proportional figures, well Hasbro makes the GI-Joe line. Hasbro thinks that we will buy 12"SW figure no matter how bad they look, so they don't put to much effort into their 12" line.

That's a brilliant idea about the hand compartment, and so obvious. I can't believe I've never heard that suggestion before!

Good job Hasbro! Once again, another 12" Jedi Knight without his robe - how lame and cheap of you! If you're reading this, Hasbro, it's not too late to add one on - just sew a slit in the robe for access to the lever on Luke's back.

This new Luke comes with cuffs though. Heh heh. I guess the next one will have Luke without the vest, and with a painful expression on his face from being zapped by Palpy.:D

How about a 12" "Emperor's Wrath" Vader with the visible skull as well.

Heck, for that matter, do a 12" Emperor's Throne Room three-pack like the cinema scene done for the 3 3/4" line.

(And make sure Palpatine has that stupid smirk on his face)
