    Would You Buy A Dagobah Jedi Apprentice Luke (Bespin jacket hung open)?

    I had an idea for a cool Luke figure for a while now.

    Like the Echo Base Han that came in the first (ESB) Vintage Wave, this is a Luke Skywalker with his tan Bespin jacket open, his green muscle shirt visible beneath.

    Luke appears this way right after he attempts to lift his X-wing out of the swamp with The Force, but disappoints, then reports to Master Yoda, "I can't...It's too big." After Yoda's dialogue, Luke grabs his jacket and pulls it on, stalking off and saying [to Yoda] "You want the impossible!" Then Yoda begins to access The Force and the swamp waters start bubbling, Artoo chirping, and Luke stands up. SNAP! There he is.

    The figure could have an independent rubber gunbelt accessory that goes on by way of the figure stepping into it, that holds his (separate) blaster and separate lightsaber hilt.

    Since they did a vintage Luke Bespin twice (2007 and 2010), this may have to be a post-vintage-collection figure maybe in 2013. (Luke needs to be kept available and currently we have about every outfit - with Hoth coming - minus the Stormtrooper (2009) and Yavin Ceremony (2008) though the pilot versions of Luke are not Battle of Yavin-specific, and a direct representation of Luke Dagobah hasn't been done since 2004. (I'm thinking Medical Frigate Luke is a rare and obscure version of him that I am lucky to have.) Oh -Endor Luke hasn't been done since 2006 if I'm not mistaken - though I think he's already rumored for a vintage figure, too (Hoth is confirmed however).

    Well, how about this Dagobah Jedi Apprentice Luke from the "You want the impossible!" scene?

    In theory, yes. However, it really depends on the execution of the figure itself. It would have to be an all new figure and not just a kitbash of the "birthing hips" Bespin Luke from 2010. Also, the face sculpt would have to totally knock my socks off, otherwise the figure is pointless. This is more of an introspective figure, not an action-based figure, so I would really need to be able to see some vulnerability and humanity in the sculpt. Something along the lines of the 2004 OTC Dagobah Training Luke is what I'm thinking of. I still consider that to be one of the greatest Luke figures Hasbro has ever produced.

Lewis

    Yes, I'd like this version. In the post-Echo Base Han world, any costume variation is possible.

    I'd have to pass on this one as I would rather they give us an awesome updated SA version of the OT Dagobah Training Luke with backpack.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Where's the "Like" button. Then if they still had the Comm Tech device they could have someone shout, "T!t's in place!" I believe that's what Carrie Fisher said someone yelled when that happened.
