New Vintage Luke X-Wing
« on: January 09, 2011, 11:45:01 AM »
My friend just won this from the auction in China. Not yet in hand but will get in these few days. Will post the cardback later ;)



Not sure which wave is. Anyone know?

I'm guessing there's going to be another ESB wave, they already have Yoda, but JediNews.UK revealed they'll be doing Yoda on RotS card...   So I'm guessing we have 2 confirmed now for the ESB 2011 wave!  Thanks for the image my friend!

There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

I thought it would be another re-paint, but the figure actually looks cool and original. Plus. The package looks great also.I'll have to get one.

Very cool and interesting. Just hope that the figures card back won't end up bent like alot of others I've seen. Might have to end up getting 1 of these to put in an X-wing later.

Not so sure about that considering Hasbro is moving toward mixed waves after the AOTC wave. But the figure is pretty decent none the less.

Yep, I did hear that there will be no more themed waves, they'll be all mixed up.  I'm not sure I like that as much as I do seeing an entire wave from each movie.

I'm actually looking forward to the mixed waves.  Back in 2006, I really liked the themed waves, but after a few years of those themed waves, some films have gotten to the point where there are enough main characters to put out, so Hasbro keeps re-hashing the same figures as repacks (mostly ROTS waves).  During TLC I skipped waves 3, 4, and then the ROTS wave thast came out in fall 2009.

I look at it this way, now I'll probably look forward to 2-3 figures per wvae as opposed to skipping entire waves.

As for the figure, I'm not sure how to react to this one. It's a bit like the newest Hoth Han, a nice niche figure that would have been better after we'd gotten a new Hoth Luke and a new Dagobah Training Luke.

Obviously Hasbro has had to really scramble to move those TPM figures out of the spring line-up. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if the 2008 and 2010 spring line-ups hadn't been so light.

Lando looks like he could be cool. Would need a closer look though
