Compare this Luke Skywalker figure
This Luke Skywalker figure was released during The Legacy Collection in October 2009 in a comic 2-pack together with a Lumiya figure. Skywalker is based on his appearances in the Dark Horse comic books series.
Luke is super articulated with 14 movable parts - with the only swivel joints being in the wrists and legs. Like with all shirt or sleeve-less figures you see the joints stick out more than usual - which can diminish the aesthetic appearance of a figure. In Luke's case it's not too bad - but the shoulder joints are still pretty obvious. When you take a closer look at the arms and under arms - you'll notice little factory markings like "R1" and "BR1" for example - which are probably part indicators used internally at the factory. It would be nice if Hasbro could hide these a bit better.
Both lightsabers fit well into Luke's hand - and both weapons are seen in the actual comic book. The paint application is well applied - but could have been nicer on his arms. Luke's hair in the comic book is bright yellow - and his boots are blue. Hasbro made the figure's hair brown and the boots black - which was probably a conscious decision so that the figure fits in better with the basic star wars figure line-up.
All in all - it's a super articulated Luke Skywalker figure based on a vintage star wars comic book series - which is close enough to the source material to warrant a purchase if you are a fan.
Luke Skywalker is defeated in a battle with Lumiya - the Dark Lady of the Sith - who wields her lightwhip with devastating precision. But this confrontation is far from over. Lumiya wants to punish the Jedi who caused her to become more cyborg than human - while Luke tries to persuade his opponent to turn away from the dark side.
