I am looking at getting Luke, Leia and Han PFs but I am stuck on which Luke. I would like to get the ANH Luke so that all three are from the same movie. However the pics of that Luke show the likeness is quite a bit off.

I would like some advice as to whether that matters to those of you that have him or at least seem him in person.

It would seem better to get the 3 from ANH but I can also go for the Luke/Yoda PF instead if it is felt that that is a much better version of Luke.

I only have Dagobah Luke, but I do like him pretty well. The exclusive also has the best exclusive accessory in the line, in my opinion. I can understand wanting to have them all from ANH, but in my opinion they are all pretty off in terms of likeness. That's the only reason I haven't bought them. On the bright side, though, they are pretty cheap on the secondary market.

there is no doubt the ANH Luke is off (also remember it was very early on in the PF line), and ANH Han is off for some people, especially compared to the Raiders PF Harrison Ford. The Leia is definately the best one of the three IMO, and I would suggest the exclusive if at all possible.

The Dagobah Luke is cool, good likeness, nice base and a very cool exclusive and you get Yoda!!

I have every SW PF so far and think you'll be pleased no matter what route you take. Happy hunting. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I think the worst of the 3 is definitely Han Solo. The ANH Luke doesn't bother me as much, and if you could get the exclusive version with the poncho and cap, I think it would make for a pretty good PF Luke figure. The price has fallen substantially on these so it's a good time to buy.

I like them both for different reasons. The Luke ANH is not as bad as people say, but next to the other Luke, there is no comparison...and as was said, you get Yoda with the ESB Luke!!!!! If I had a choice and had to only pick one, it would be the ESB Luke w/Yoda!

But Luke standing atop the rock observing the binary sunset, how could you go against that? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

In my opinion, Dagobah Luke is the most iconic of all the PFs.
I can't decide which of all the PFs is my favorite, but Dagobah Luke is definately in the running.

I never bought the PF Tatooine Luke or the Han because I didn't think much of the likenesses. I have the exclusive Leia though and it's definitely one of my favourites.

I have the ANH Luke and Han premium formats, and they are 2 of my favorite items. I also have the Indy PF statue, and agree the likeness is dead-on. However, like was already stated, these were 2 of the first statues in the line.
Here's pics of mine, for comparison. The last one is from my old set-up.

The other thing I dislike about the Luke PF is his fingers, which you can see in the first of your pictures above. They just look weird. The exclusive holding the binoculars helps that a bit.

I have every SW PF except Ventress and must say the Dagobagh Luke is one of my favorites. What makes the piece so great is that the detail on the base is amazing plus it probably has the coolest exclusive of all the PF's.

All i can really say about the ANH Luke is that it a decent piece worth having but IMO its one of the weakest offerings from the line.

Thanks for the input guys. I have caught the PF bug so I will probably wind up with both Lukes at some point but wanted a place to start.

Looks like Luke/Yoda will be the first up http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

The Luke ESB Exclusive alone is worth getting the Ex. piece! The Vader/Luke head is amazing!

They look great in the individual cases

I gotta say, despite some negative press, I really like the ANH Luke. It captures the movie well to me, and also was my first PF. Call me sentimental, but I will always enjoy it. Considering the price you can find one for, I say it's a no-brainer to pick up.

Yeah, I have all my PF's in cases...I love the way they look displayed that way. I do have Vader and Obi-Wan in a case together clashing sabers, but all the others are in individual cases.

What is a good price to pay for Han or Luke shipped? I can get either of them (not the ones with medal or pancho) for $98 and free shipping. Is that a reasonable price?

spudmanski

That would seem to be a pretty good deal. I picked up Han and Luke together for $270 shipped (so $135 each).

Thus, $98 shipped would seem to be pretty good.

those seem like very reasonable prices - I'd say go for it!

Is that from a store? I've heard of people getting Luke on ebay for even less, but I'd say $98 with free shipping is a great price.

Less than $100 is a steal. I got mine for $125 PLUS shipping....somewhere in the neighborhood of $150. Go for it, my friend! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Wow, that's a great price. I'd say get it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif Is that from a retailer?
