I'll take two. Seriously, other than Hoth Rebel Commander, this is the other one that was a must have for me.

I'll take others, but these two were it. One down. One to go.

No Jabba yet?

I got to say the head sculpt if it was like that back in the day is probably the closed they got to Hamill's likeness.

Looks like GG have given him more detail in his hair. Just having a look at my vintage Luke Stormie and with my ageing eyes, he certainly doesn't appear to have the flowing locks of hair that the up-sized version has....??

This wouldn't be the first time GG has shamefully added extra details to these sculpts (ie. Bossk's extra scales on his head), even though they claim these are 100% accurate 3D scans of the original figures with NO changes. Uh huh. Right.

GG have undoubtedly added detail to Luke's hair. My Luke Stormtrooper appears to have the 'helmet hair' style common to Lego mini figures and you can barely see the middle parting, let alone all those locks that he clearly has in the photograph above.

Love this line but is it too much to ask that GG puts the coins in so the picture on the front isn't upside down or sideways?
Coins can rotate in shipping. Once you have figure in hand, tap the upper right (I think) corner repeatedly, and you'll watch the coin rotate. Continue until right side up.

I was toying(no pun intended)to get 2 of Luke and make a Han in stormtrooper disguise as well. not sure how difficult that would be.

Pre-ordered Luke but cancelled emperor. These just take up too much room to have a load of them so i'm trying to be as selective as possible.

The video review from GG has been up for about a month.

I really dig it, and can’t wait to get it, but I’m disappointed how they didn’t keep the original leg stance. Most likely so they could position the helmet in the packaging by the legs.

Yeah but wasnt that one in the video an early sample, not the actual production piece? We've already seen the sample pics on the Gentle Giant order page. The actual pieces always look a little different (less glossy, etc). Sorry, didn't mean to confuse people. I'm on the fence on this one so I just wanted to see good close up well lit pictures. I can wait for the Rebelscum photo archive entry though.

I received mine last week, love it, but still disappointed about the leg stance. They should have kept it like the original.

Has BBTS shipped these to anybody yet? I just got in on their pre-order a week ago. Now their pre-order is sold out.

I've had my pre-order for the POTF Greedo in there since October and my understanding is that figure shipped a long time ago even though their site says it's arriving second quarter 2018. So I don't know what is up with their site anymore. They seem to be becoming unreliable.

Very fortunate to grab one of these in Australia, they sold out from the distributor before they even landed. The leg stance doesn't bother me quite as much now I've seen it up close which I'm thankful for, but it still would have been better to have kept it faithful to the original.

Probably the last Jumbo figure I'll buy, unless they do a special Han in Stormtrooper outfit. I'd buy that in a second.
