Compare this Luke Skywalker figure
This Luke Skywalker in Bespin Gear was released individually carded during the The Power Of The Force 2 toy line in 1998. The figure is based on Luke's appearance in The Empire Strikes Back - while he was trying to rescue his friends on Bespin.
Bespin Luke has 7 points of articulation - including swivel joints in the neck - shoulders - the right wrist - waist and both legs. There are no ball-joints - and no joints in the elbows - knees or ankles. The figure stands surprisingly well on its own if the right foot is placed forward. Both weapons - the blue lightsaber and the bulky blaster fit both well into either of Luke's hands.
The paint application on Skywalker is only average - with various shades of brown on his outfit. Actually - if you take a closer look - you'll notice the spray paint pattern on the arms and legs. The figure's sculpt is quite outdated compared with modern Star Wars figures - especially the wide shoulders look off and the head sculpt doesn't look like Luke Skywalker. All in all - if you are looking for a more articulated and more accurate representation of the character - there are better choices available today.
It should be noted that when this figure was first released back in 1998 - collectors were excited about it. Getting an articulated wrist and being able to position the lightsaber differently in Luke's hand was truly fantastic at the time. Despite the figure's shortcomings - it still ranks as a personal favorite here at Jedi-Business.com.
Sensing his friends are in critical danger - Luke Skywalker ventures to Cloud City before finishing his Jedi training. Unbeknown-st to him - Darth Vader has prepared an elaborate trap with the darkest of intentions.
