I got the impression they did the battle damaged versions because they couldn’t put out figures for a movie that had been delayed and had to sell something.

A Bespin Luke is my A-number-one want.
(I was so pissed pulled a bait-and-switch on the hyperreal Luke.)

Very excited for these two. Hoping that they're easy to get, like Din and Boba were.

Luke looks great. A much better effort than their initial ROTJ figure. And I'm glad I didn't get TBS Gideon. This one looks much nicer and the darksaber looks great here.

Same.

An ESB Vader (with softgoods cape and inner robe) would be nice too.

So I finally found a use for my Vader 1.0 which has been collecting dust for years.

Awesome job dude. I have a bootleg SH Vader and I ordered the kit from Scoundrel’s so I’m gonna swipe your recipe. Can I ask how you attached the arms/butterfly joints to the pre-built torso? And any other tips would be appreciated. Thx!
PS-for anyone else interested in making Starkiller, Scoundrels stock had a 25% off deal going til 11/30. Code is BOUNTY. And you get a free Arc kit with a purchase over a certain amount

Thank you! I had spare ball joint sockets lying around so I built the inner parts with that (I did that mainly to keep the original Vader torso as a bust). However, you can just crack open Vader's torso to extract his entire arm joint assembly to transfer over to the LSKA kit. I'll share some work-in-progress pictures with a quick guide on my Instagram as soon as I get the time to sort out the pics.

Looks like a solid figure. I like the headsculpt & painting. That cloak looks extremely thin, though. I don’t know if it’s just a result of the lightning, but I can see his belt buckle through the material…

Preordered as soon as I can. That Luke looks fantastic! Also, between he, Gideon, Boba, and Mando all being released from January to April, SHF might be going hard on Star Wars this year.

Have fun, all!

I can't tell whether the tunic is soft goods, rubber, or soft plastic.

Im not looking forward to the mad scramble towards securing a preorder, but I can’t wait to have this. Looks really good. Much better likeness than their original ROTJ figure.

Definitely not softgoods. I think the torso is hard plastic with the tabbard being a soft plastic overlay, and a second soft plastic overlay for the “skirt” below his belt.

All in all, this looks like the best Luke to date for those with an aversion to softgoods. Personally, I’m a softgoods fan. My ideal would be using the ROTJ Luke & putting a softgoods tunic over it. But this headsculpt looks a lot better (especially the HAIR). I’ll be getting it.
