i saw this in the RS forums. i thought those who don't venture over there may be interested in this figure. it's a 12" luke as seen in ROTJ. looks pretty good, meesa thinks. better than anything hasbro ever made.

but it's probably gonna be very limited in production and cost a pretty penny. medicom made a matrix revolutions neo and trinity and those sell for about $150 each. they also made a real cool spiderman.

now here is my big gripe: if hasbro is letting medicom make this figure, why they heck can't a company like sideshow make one as well? :frus:

yea, about 30 points of articulation.

i've got 3 medicom figures. the body isn't my favorite out there, but it does it's job.

here is medicom's spiderman:

When is this supposed to be released? Is this going to be a single figure, or a brief line like the marmits? Not too shabby. I'd like to see them do some other figures.

e-bay is probably gonna be the best place to get it, and if the medicom spiderman is any indication, look for it to cost $190, not including about $30 for shipping.

I think if you took this figure and put on the head from the Luke/Bib Fortuna 2pack you might have a perfect figure -- if the head is to scale, that is. It sounds like this is going to be a series, though. I'm interested to see what other figures they make before hasbro gets jealous and cans them the way they did marmit.

Too bad we can't have ALL 12" made as well as say...BBi or even 21st Century.
