Well, the throne's more or less been done now with the Thrawn statue. (Sorry, did that come across as mean? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

not really....but you realize that Thrawn is 1/6 scale and a 1/4 scale thrown has not been made.....

However SSC has made Marvel thrones for Ghost Rider and Dr. Doom so one can only hope....

while the in-progress shots are very promising, I gotta agree with DarthPotts, this will be our 3rd Luke, which seems like SS got him a little too fast considering the range of characters that would be great in PF.

I don't have a Luke so this is a VERY welcomed edition. The face is spot on! I just hope he doesn't come out to close to Yoda/Clone.

Now I just need a Qui-Gon, Episode I, II or III Obi-Wan, Episode II Clone and Hammerhead in my PF collection. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif At the very least. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Hammerhead, or any cantina alien for that matter, would be sweet. I have the feeling that we'd see a Hammerhead 1:1 bust before we'd ever see a PF statue though.

Hammerhead has been on my must have 1:1 busts since they began making them. He is one the first characters I thought that I would like to have in that line. They should make him!

Nothing wrong with another Luke....I think there should be a Luke represented from all of the films.
I actually think we need two more.
Red 5 pilot and Hoth (pummeled by Wampa or right before.....or on Taun-Taun)

They pump these out fairly quickly....We need a few Han's too.

I disagree; while I'll need to see a full prototype before making any definitive statements, the teaser image looks very promising. Jedi Luke is one of my favorite incarnations of the character, which makes this PF figure a virtual must-buy.

110% Agree with you. I would add though that they should create an Emperor PF w/ chair (with articulation so he can also stand up!)...for the ultimate final duel scene...

SirTristram
10-31-2009, 10:27 AM
We already have Vader dueling .....with Obi-Wan.

I am hoping that Vader is either Sitting in his meditation chamber (That would make for an awesomely huge PF!) or just standing there with his hands on his hips. Again, I'm easy when it comes to some of this stuff. I hate it when they 'try too hard' with a pose.

Wasn't it mentioned in the Q & A Session prior to this one?

The_Chosen_1
10-31-2009, 01:17 PM
From what I understand, the PF's that have been confirmed or talked about from Sideshow are: Jedi Luke, C-3PO, R2-D2, Stormtrooper, and Qui-Gon. Going with the number of PF's released per year, those should take us all the way through 2010 and into 2011! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Not only that, but they're all must-haves. Next year looks to be a great year for the line.

The pose that comes to my mind and did the first time I saw that head sculpt is in the throne room, after Luke just kicked the crap out of Vader and is standing over him, as the Emperor is talking to Luke and just before Luke kills the switch on his saber and chucks it. Then again......I could be WAAAYYY off!

SirTristram
11-01-2009, 10:08 PM
Dueling would be great....But they need a much more dynamic pose than Obi-Wan and Vader that are already available!

Perhaps something along these lines....(Not exactly this, this is slightly awkward)

This is pure conjecture on my part, but I think C-3PO will be unveiled first. In any event, both 3PO and Jedi Luke are probably a year away from shipping.

I've never been a big fan of Luke. Even as a kid, I always cheered for Vader and the bad guys.
I agree that the PF looks stunning, but I already have one Luke in my PF collection (the Dagobah one ... and I got that mainly because of Yoda). I don't see the need for a second one.

I really can't wait for this. I know some are not a fan of the pose, but I actually really like it....not too action packed, but displays his saber well and not too bland either. I think they have a great mix with the pose and the likeness is incredible!

That was frustrating. I never even got a confirmation page. When I hit my back button after the page crash and finally got through with an oder again it said that I couldn't purchase more than one.
Had to check my email to verify that the order was placed when the submit order page crashed.
Anyway, I logged off so hopefully that helps the server traffic in a small way.

Man, got my order in but that was a lot more painful than it should have been. They should have done a PPO for this. After fighting for about 8 minutes I finally got it in.

Actually, I find the pose lends itself to a better display with the blaster. He looks so awkward with the saber in that pose. Believe me, I wish I did not feel that way...I much prefer the saber, but that pose leaves so much to be desired for me.

Put myself on the waitlist for the Exclusive, but honestly, I think I'll just go through a retailer for the regular if someone has it on pre-order for 15% off.

While it took a while for the pose to grow on me, I made some subtle tweaks in photoshop to make Luke look a little more imposing IMO. Just by turning his head slightly so that he's looking the same direction as the saber is posed ready to strike/protect himself. Also, with the pupils looking head-on instead of off and behind himself. Here are the comparisons:

I agree, that Bespin suit is a much better look. I always thought this suit was a little gay.

I ordered one, but will most likely cancel and pick one up on the aftermarket.

I've really been meditating on this one over the past few days. Now that the pre-order dust has settled, my opinion of it seems to be firming up, and sadly, it's not as good as I had hoped. I suspect others feel the same way, because our first glimpses of this were of the terrific sculpt. Then we all get caught up in the fervor and excitement of the preorder. Then, after we get our order confirmation, we actually look at the photos of the $300 collectible we just ordered and realize, "Hey, this could've and should've been better, but I still sort of kinda want it anyway, right?"

I love Trevor Grove's sculpt, but the pose! The pose! I really have to question what they were thinking on this pose. I can't imagine how anyone on the design team would see the pose and say, "Perfect! Don't change a thing!" Because, let's face it, it's not right. It really doesn't capture Luke's ROTJ aura. There's just waaay too much twisting going on here. Not sure why we couldn't have gotten a more iconic stance. Or even a more relaxed stance. Their Indiana Jones PF is a superb example of this. A real sense of weight and balance, the way the actor would really stand. This harkens more to an Unleashed sort of pose. Too bad.


The final verdict - this will end up being one of those "Almost" collectibles rather than a home run. It's not bad. It's just not what it easily could have been. Which is a shame, because the headsculpt is so wonderful, and the details and cloth seem to be great.

My prediction: Huge edition size will make for rock bottom prices on this later on. That's probably when I will strike.

Well, Hedji does it again....says it better than most could have. I wholeheartedly agree on every point, save for the cancelation part. I am a sick individual and have a compulsion for completeness. I cannot bring myself to cancel, but I agree on everything else....Oh, what could have been!

I guess I'm in the minority, I REALLY like the pose. It's growing on me more and more. I can see how it would work just as well with Bespin Luke. I like how they take liberties with the poses. In my opinion some poses, iconic or not, have been WAY overdone, example: Vader, I'm your father, pose.

while I agree it was not a pose anybody was expecting (myself included), I believe we are rushing to judgement as many of us did with the tusken raider when that pose was revealed.

just because a pose wasn't in the movie doesn't mean it can't work for the PF (or other collectible line) - I was very skeptical when the tusken hit and now think it is one of the best poses out of the PF.

I applaud SS for taking a step out of the OT films and basing a main character's pose on something that did not happen on film.

keep in mind, we all know a 2nd vader is coming, and that pose could tie into Luke's pose as well.

just my 2 cents

Yeah, I always thought that too, but he was a Jedi....I now believe that even though he had not undertaken that particular trial, he was ready for it and thus a Jedi mentally. He was prepared.
Look how he walked into Jabba's palace in the beginning...With such serene balance and confidence. Listen him as he returned to Degobah and spoke with Yoda and then Obi-Wan...He was not the rambunctious, reckless and impatient youth that we saw leave that place and go and face Vader the first time.
He only realized that he was a Jedi after (or while) he confronted Vader.
Nothing the Emperor could do could change that or take that away at that point.
The entire film, Luke is a different person...he is on the other side of a huge character arch that began as the inexperienced and anxious youth on the backwater planet.

That is too funny. But horribly accurate.

Ray Park was an acrobat. It makes sense for his statue to have a more dynamic pose. The guy was an animal. On the other hand, Mark Hamill carried himself differently. His mentor was Yoda. As such, Luke always had that look that said, "I am waaaay more powerful than I appear. Don't mess with me." Maul was an exploding bomb, whereas Luke was a loaded weapon.

Sorry, I want to like this more than it's letting me. Premium Format statues have an advantage: They're so big and impressive that even "bad" ones look great in person. The very nature of the large format with real materials affords these statues significant license to breathe an incredible amount of life. That is why you so often hear the cliched phrase, "The pictures don't do it justice". No computer monitor will ever capture the presence of these pieces in person.

But that doesn't mean they shouldn't try even harder to make them as perfect as they can be. It's PREMIUM Format. It's an elite club with a supreme price. It's not a $90 Gentle Giant statue or Koto that you can just dismiss. And with a revered character like Jedi Luke, I would expect more attention to the overall look. Unlike a Hasbro figure, they only get ONE shot to nail this character.

The frustrating part is, they got the hard part right! The face sculpt is a work of art. And I'm not ragging on SS because I'm a hater. I absolutely love my PF statues. I just happen to be passionate about Luke since he is my favorite character.

They got the hard part right and it is VERY frustrating....and yes, these are all impressive in person. They just could have given us so much more to feast our eyes on and to admire in the long term with a different pose. This is just going to blend in to my collection now....I doubt it will stand out at all. Now, having said that, it will be in good company, but there are others that stand out...Hell, look at Anakin and Ventress and Fett....all have a calmer, don't mess with me attitude or you'll get the end of my saber or blaster look....that is what Luke needed. Now, they are all 'Bad' characters, but Hedji is right....Luke had two of the calmest Jedi as Masters and he takes after them. His entire demeanor in ROTJ makes that evident. The pose could have made this piece simply a better overall piece for collectors. They had one chance and they did not step up....again, very frustrating, since they got everything else spot on! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

You make some good points. I find myself in a similar camp here because I think the products actually look better up close and in person and pictures, particularly production pictures, can never really do the piece justice. I've been waiting for a Jedi Luke PF for some time and I'm excited for this one despite the 'shortcoming's of the pose. There is always going to be something wrong with this piece no matter what it was. Are there better poses that could have been done? Sure, but there are much worse and much worse face sculpts that could have been done also.
