    That's because Luke doesn't have a holster on his ANH X-Wing Pilot outfit. You're probably thinking of his Snowspeeder Pilot outfit from ESB.

    Because Luke never had a holster for a blaster when in his X-Wing Gear. Simple as that.

    Same reason the Sandtrooper doesn't have a holster, but the upcoming Stormtrooper does.

    Do you mean in ANH? Here's a shot of Luke on Dagobah with his blaster holstered.

    That's Luke in his Snowspeeder Gear though. Since he wore that uniform in ESB, not the X-Wing one.

    Yeah. My point about a $20 figure is that it is for collectors - to be authentic.

    Don't include the blaster or lightsaber for ANH Luke.

    It's an authentic collector figure, right?

    How about extra hands (gloves on, gloves off? or damaged ROTJ hand?)

    2 helmets: visor up, visor down?

    Don't know. Don't collect these. Don't really care.

    So you take Hasbro into consideration and accept sub-par production? Would you buy a particular vehicle because you liked them but they produced sub-par vehicles?

    Honest question. Is the Black Series figure specifically from ANH? Is there a possibility it could be from ESB too? Once again I'm just seriously asking.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    It's not like there are other companies out there who produce 6" or 3.75" Star Wars figures, since Hasbro is the only company who has that license. So, using the cars analogy doesn't really work at all.

    I did and didn't like it in the case of the Sith Infiltrator.

    The ship did not do anything in the movie, so I figured it didn't warrant a vehicle the size of the Royal Starship or maybe slightly smaller than that (the real Sith Infiltrator had to be smaller than the Royal Starship).

    But it ended up being too small and didn't work as a "star fighter."

    I thought we could check the Sith Infiltrator off our list if they did it that way.

    Now, Slave-One, the Clone Fighter Tank, and the (next) Jedi Starfighter were remolded and made REALLY sub-par (though for the kids' market). I'm buying none of that. I forget which underscaled vehicles were due next but don't care either.

    I am hoping that at least as an exclusive we get full-sized fighter class vehicles with such new additions as the Gungan Bongo Submarine.

    No, the outfits are different. The pilots wear puffier jumpsuits and lighter-colored boots and gloves on Hoth, and since Luke goes from Hoth to Dagobah to Bespin, he only wears the snowspeeder pilot gear in the film. He wears the X-wing gear in ROTJ, but the figure wouldn't work for that due to the pre-car-accident appearance.

    Not to sound too nitpicky, but if you're going for scene accuracy down to the fact that Luke doesn't have a holster in ANH, shouldn't you leave out the saber and blaster entirely? He doesn't carry either of those at all in ANH when wearing his flight gear, so both accessories are technically inaccurate.

    Call me crazy or whatever, but if I were paying $20 for a higher-end collectible figure who comes with a blaster, I'd want the holster. I can assume that anytime Luke's wearing his flight gear and has a blaster, he'd carry a holster rather than having it slide around loose in the cockpit and risk blowing his head off.
    Tommy, close your eyes.
