    He's still a pretty main character. And has a large fan following.

    And I don't think Luke: X-Wing needs an X-Wing to earn being made.

    We don't have a Rebel Blockade Runner for Captain Antilles either.

    Yeah.... but you're an extreme crazy pants collector.

    If you going to start a new line though, and use Luke as your big name, wouldn't you use Jedi or Tatooine Luke over X-Wing Luke?

    Jedi Luke... eh, maybe. But Tatooine Luke is actually kind of boring looking because he's just wearing white baggy clothing. With X-Wing Luke, at least Hasbro can produce a highly detailed figure with lots of cool little gadgets on his suit, a helmet, blaster and a lightsaber.

    Personally, I think X-Wing Luke is just a more eye-catching design.

    If Hasbro has started with Tatooine Luke, then I would still be excited about the potential of the line, but he would instantly go into the "definite pass" category for me. Just not interested in another toy of that outfit, no matter how iconic it is. For me, X-Wing Luke is in the "most likely purchase" category (which is just shy of the "definite purchase" category).

    Yeah... Tatooine Luke isn't really a figure that you can show off cool sculpting with.

    Plus in the 3 3/4" line he was made so many times he was a huge snooze each time.

    Honestly if Hasbro had premiered this line with "obvious" choices like Tatooine Luke and a plain Stormtrooper alongside R2 and Darth Maul, then I think that would actually not bode well for the future of the line and I would probably be significantly less excited about the announcement. Because it would feel like Hasbro was just going through the motions and wasn't really invested in the new line.

    When they start out with secondary outfits like Luke's X-Wing Pilot uniform and the Sandtrooper, then it gets me excited because they seem to be thinking more "out of the box" and not just doing what everyone expects them to do.

    Same reason I'm glad they didn't hit the ground with Luke: Bespin or Luke: Jedi Knight.

    Those two are huge fan favorites and seeing them roll out so early would worry me.

    Luke: X-Wing and Sandtrooper does exactly what you said. Shows Hasbro has faith in the line.

    He does look great, there's no denying that. I guess I'm so used to Hasbro pulling the plug on a line I enjoy that I would rather have the iconic figures out first so I can't say, "Man, I wish I had that one...".

    I do hope that case assortments are not uneven.

    Wait a minute... you're the guy who's still displaying POTF2-era He-Man Luke, Han, Vader, etc. and you're worried about quality sculpting and detail?
