There are some shots of the completed prototype on the Scum home page. What do yall think?
I think it looks good, but he looks to much like an ANH Luke in ROTJ garb, holding the ROTJ saber. Mark Hamill just changed so much between those films, and the statue doesn't really acknowledge that.
That's just me.

Bad week for likenesses all around. First Qui-Gon from SS and now this. These companies need to buckle down and stop trying to get through sculpting so quickly.

Attakus is so much better than Gentle Giant.

Ah HA Ha Ha!

Well after the Tusken (which is amazing) they had to flub up. Attakus hasn't missed in a while so it was bound to happen.

Yeah, looks good apart from the face looking way too young for ROTJ ...

I've never thought Attakus' facial likenesses were all that great. Sure, some were more accurate than others, but none were perfect.

Whether or not the face on this ROTJ Luke is accurate, it just looks plain ol' weird to me. Not a statue I'd buy.

The statue is OK but the likeness is f'ing terrible. If I was paying out the sort of price that Attakus charge for their statues I'd expect a hell of a lot better than that.

I agree. Anyone know when this is released?

That and I think they made the hilt too long.

Wow, all anyone does here these days is complain like a bunch of old ladies. It's pretty hard to get around the fact that Attakus is near perfect, and this Luke looks great. I will pick one up for sure.

I think Attakus statues are great but they always have problems with the human faces.
I believe (and don't quote me here) that the problem with the human faces was caused to a license problem with LFL. It seems that they didn't or don't have the approval of LFL to make the faces look like the actors.
GG and SS are great doing this, there is no argument there, because of the digital scans, but no matter what, you can't deny Attakus sculpt quality, amazing detail and great respect for scale.

He's very cool! Too bad that the Attakus statues aren't in my price range...

I'll start the waiting line for a Koto Jedi Luke! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Oh yeah, I'm such a whiner because I just can't see the amazing likeness that you're seeing.

I will be skipping this one. Should have been done standing there with the black cloak, hoodie up. That would have been way cool.

I totally agree with that statement. They don't seem to be able to do the human faces right, or even the body proportions (Obi-Wan). Luke's pose looks cool, but the face ruins it I think.

Also, you have to remember than Attakus SW statues are based on whatever marketing pics LFL send them, there is no choice for them, is either the pose from the pics or no statue at all.

Actually, you know who the face reminds me of? Kevin 'Footloose' Bacon ... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Also - I agree with the comments about the great detailing on the Attakus statues, I'm just commenting on the facial un-likeness which is the reason why I won't be going for this one ...

Looks pretty good to me, although you may be right that the Attakus Luke looks slightly younger. I think some folks are still being to picky. The statue is very nice overall, and I would much rather have it than the SS version.

Is that ROTJ Luke in the photo a picture you have framed hanging in your bathroom? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

While some are infinately worse than others; I've never been overly impressed with any of the Attakus statues, even the good ones.
That's perfectly fine with me though since the extraordinarily high costs involved would take me out my other collection focuses.
Does anyone feel the same?

Wow, I am really glad I didn't start collecting this line. The face looks way too young for ROTJ Luke. Attakus does a nice job with some characters but it's inconsistent. This one and the X-wing Luke look like they almost have a Japanese art influence.

I think attakus statues are overrated in general. That being said they have SOME of the best sw statues ever produced (so far).

The Tusken, Jango, Jawa and Wicket are absolutely amazing as well as a few others. But pieces like the first Luke, Stormtrooper, Obi-Wan and C-3PO are horrible and drag down the line. The new jedi Luke just isn't that great.
This is all just my opinion though.

I have and love the first Attakus Vader and the Maul. I got the luke cause he's my favorite character and got a great price. I'm not fond of Attakus's facial sculpts (unless you count the Maul)but I'll probably still get this one.

what i usually do is wait about 6-12 months after a particular attakus statue is released. by then alot of ebay sellers are willing to sell them for cheap just to get rid of some inventory. with exception to my vader 2 and maul ive gotten for really good deals.
for example
yoda 2 $189
clonetrooper $189
luke x-wing $169

that being said jedi luke will look awsome next to my vader 2

even the tusken raider is going for cheap! you just gotta look. i saw one for 220 recently! i almost bit. that thing is AWESOME!

DarthPotts1975

$220 for a tusken raider. i wouldnt of been able to pass that up. the best price ive seen was $250. the raider sculpt looks amazing.

as far as complaints on lukes face. pictures never do these pieces justice. a good example is the solo. i never thought the pics look very good on it. needless to say i got it anyway. it just happens to one of my favorites.

Now yall don't get me wrong: I'm not trying to knock Attakus in the first post or anything like that. I'm tempted to buy their Wicket and Han in Carbonite everytime I see them online, even though I'm in college! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I like a lot of their stuff, just not really this piece.
