This Luke Skywalker action figure was released in
2012 in The Vintage Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure 14 points of articulation and included
five accessories (blue lightsaber, lightsaber hilt, blaster, removable collar, goggles with scar).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- Both included lightsabers fit well into the hands
- The blaster fits well into both hands and quite tightly into the holster
- The hat is not removable
- The figure has no balancing issues, even in more dynamic poses
- The non-ignited lightsaber hilt plugs nicely into a hole on the left side of the figure
- Luke's removable collar plugs into a small hole in the back of Luke's neck
- The goggles and the scarf are one piece, you need to pop the head off the figure and then move the goggles over the face (this works quite well)
- The details on the outfit seem to be all there, including all the right pouches on the belt, the communicator on the left forearm and the "Commander" insignia on the chest
- The paint application is well done on the entire figure, but Hasbro especially nailed the light brown and grey color tone of the outfit (maybe some "snow" on the legs and the scarf would have been nice)
- Thanks to ball-jointed hips, Luke fits very well onto the TaunTaun, which was released separately as a Target exclusive for the 2011 holidays
- Unfortunately, the shoulders look a little bit off as they seem to stick out a bit too far
- Overall, as of 2012, this version of Hoth Luke can be considered the best available "Hoth Luke" yet and is easily recommendable
The articulation details are as follows: ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, 2 swivel wrists, ball-jointed waist, 2 ball-jointed legs, 2 ball-jointed knees, 2 ball-jointed ankles
