View Full Version : Luke ANH vs Luke ESB

12-16-2006, 05:47 PM
I'm really undecided on wether I want 2 Lukes in my 1/4 collection.
I eventually plan on purchasing one big case for these to display them all together and think 2 Lukes in the case would look a bit odd.
If it wasnt for the additon of Yoda I'd have passed on the new one straight away but because of Yoda I want it.
I prefer the ESB statue and was considering selling my ANH Luke but ANH Luke goes with ANH Han, Leia, Kenobi and vader.
If I thought they'd do a Yoda on his own I'd probably pass but I don't think they will.
I'll probably end up with them both and maybe display ESB Luke on its own or have a ANH case and a case for random ones like Grevious and ESB Luke.
So whats everyone elses plans with this dilema?
Does anyone else not really want more than 1 of the same person?
Wait and see if they make a yoda on his own?

I have the ANH Luke and do like it quite a bit, but I think the ESB Luke represents a more pivotal point in the Trilogy/Saga and would suggest that one for that reason.

However they both personify the character extraordinarily well, and neither of them even brandish lightsabers!

For me there is no problem. I just will not buy the ANH Luke. The face sculpt is so bad IMO that alone has kept me from buying it so I will only have the Luke ESB.

i like the face sculpt of the dagobah luke much better, though i felt no huge urge to pick either of these two up. if/when sideshow releases a premium format esb bespin luke or the rotj luke in his "suit," (depending on the sculpts and poses) I would most definately pick those up.

however, if i had to chose from one of these, it would be the dagobah luke. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

i dont think the ANH luke is all that bad. the ESB luke does look better though.

I think the ANH version gets a bit of a bad rap. It's actually pretty good in person and can be had for a very reasonable price these days. That being said, it is my least favourite of the lot.

The more I think of it, the more I realize thatthe ESB Luke can beat the ANH Luke because he has more Jedi training and military experience. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Since you have both, I would just hang on to them, and wait for the 1/4 Premium Luke ROTJ version to come out and complete the trilogy! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

My thoughts exactly, you know that an ROTJ Luke PF is a no brainer at this point, keep all three and showcase the hero of the Original Trilogy.

That would be the only Luke PF I will buy, I love that costume and development of the character in that part of the story, I don't have room for these but for Jedi Luke PF I would make room.

I missed out on both SDCC/regular ANH Luke http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif...But I didnt miss out on the ESB exclusive http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif...I love this sculp...

At the price I just don't think I can justify more than one of each charchter 3 woul d be a definate no no unless it was something really special such as one made in a pose so it could be made to fight with the vader like obi-wan.
