Before the dark times, before the resculpts and variants, there was the Kenner Star Wars line. Simple, yet enjoyable. There were a few figures that had different outfits, Luke included, of course. Which of these is your favorite and why?
Luke Skywalker (yellow or brown hair)
Luke Skywalker X-Wing Fighter Pilot
Luke Skywalker Bespin Fatigues
Luke Skywalker Hoth Battle Gear
Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight Outfit
Luke Skywalker Imperial Stormtrooper Disguise
Luke Skywalker Combat Poncho

Huh? HUH? :rolleyes:

Definitely Jedi Knight - he had the awesome cloth robe. Not to mention he had the most movie-like weapons of the lukes. He was the only luke of the vintage line to come with a green or blue lightsaber.

My favorite would also have to be Luke Skywalker: Bespin Fatigues. Yep, I'm a sucker pretty much for figures from Empire. Always loved this outfit, it was definatly better then Luke's ANH outfit. Most of the other vintage Luke's were pretty good also, but I think I would have to say in order of best to worst:

1. Luke Skywalker: Bespin Fatigues
2. Luke Skywalker: Jedi Knight Outfit
3. Luke Skywalker: Hoth Battle Gear )
4. Luke Skywalker: Combat Poncho
5. Luke Skywalker: Imperial Stormtrooper Disguise
6. Luke Skywalker: X-Wing Fighter Pilot
7. Luke Skywalker: Original (yellow or brown hair)

Luke Skywalker Bespin Fatigues just because I like it more than the others :)

My favorite has to be Jedi Knight Luke . He has a lightsaber, a gun, and a cloak. WHat more could you ask for.

As a kid I like Bespin Luke better. But now its Jedi Luke. He has a cloak, green (or blue) lightsaber, and the he make a grab for in the movie. That and I have always like ROTJ better then ESB.

I think LusiferSam meant to say (type?) "...the gun he made a grab for in the movie..."

I choose Jedi Luke as well. That cloth cloak STILL rules.

Yep, my vote goes to Jedi Luke as well.

Bespin Luke for me. After seeing the original for three years,it was great too see a different outfit.

Bespin Luke for me too. But with Blond Hair. I hate the brown hair Lukes!!!

Bespin Luke is in my top 3 all time, in the Kenner line. The outfit is my favorite in the films (even better than Fett's!), and it came with two weapons :eek: ! I liked the "brown" hair Lukes better, though, even though it was more of a tan than brown.

Bespin Luke for me. After seeing the original for three years,it was great too see a different outfit.

Absolutely right. He was finally out of his farm-boy togs. Plus he had a separate "real" lightsaber! Whoo-hoo! Man, it was a happy day when I ripped that sucker open.

Hard choice...........hmmmm.......Bespin Luke or Jedi Luke????

choices, choices.....

Oh well, cloth accessories always give a leg up on the competition so I pick Jedi Knight Luke.

I also narrow it down to Bespin and Jedi . . . I'll take the Bespin version, I guess I just have sentimental reasons - I didn't have the Jedi version as a kid but that Bespin Luke sure got a workout.

Re: Hoth Luke, he didn't come with a lightsaber, did he? He should have :)

He had a shoulder strap rifle (the same as Rebel Commander and I think AT-AT Commander).

Figures with light sabers:
Darth Vader [red]
Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi [blue]
Luke Skywalker [yellow]
Luke Skywalker: Bespin Fatigues [yellow]
Luke Skywalker: Jedi Knight Outfit [green or blue]

I believe that's it.

Definitely Bespin Luke. I remember when one of the kids at my school brought Bespin Luke and Hoth Han up to school one day-- before ESB came out- and I was just in awe of both of those figures.

To this day, Bespin Luke remains my favorite figure- both in the vintage and in the modern line.

In fact-- at one point in time I actually LOST my bespin luke. And- being that the movies were over- I could never find another one. So I wrote to Hasbro and explained my predicament- and believe it or not they wrote me back, told me to call them collect, and for $7 or so (seemed like a fortune back then) I got another Bespin Luke. Granted, he didn't come on a card or anything- but it was a happy day when he arrived in my mailbox.
