Well if Sideshow ever puts up their Skiff Lando for preorder, it sure would be nice if it included the sandstorm gear/goggles too. And if Hot Toys ever offers a Slave Leia (highly unlikely thanks to Disney), getting her sandstorm costume too would be real nice considering she would otherwise have little to no accessories.Does this mean a deleted sandstorm scene Leia, Han, Chewie & Lando are coming? I think not.
Thanks for the infos. So, this is the one we've been seeing at conventions with added extras. Hmmm......I'll have to think about this one.Technically, we are now getting the Endor version (MMS516) which was displayed at events for nearly two years. Then, there's that special twist from Hot Toys offering a DX version (MMS517) of Endor Luke adding a few, never revealed before, accessories to allow for a Tatooïne Sandstorm display.
I would've loved to have seen the alternate wind-swept hair and the deleted scene gear in the original release, and I never would've grumbled. It probably would've pushed the original Jedi Luke figure around $300 but it'd feel more complete for a figure that was supposed to represent the Tatooine version of Jedi Luke, for the most part, with a Death Star 2 version by happenstance. The alternate head and lightsaber hilt, in addition to the Endor gear, would've made a fine release on its own I'd never be tempted to double-dip on. Then again, that's the point. Now I'm thinking of double-dipping. Good job, Hot Toys.There seems to be a lot of confusion around as to why some people are annoyed by the release. It's not the release of Endor Luke, that's an acceptable different figure, it's the inclusion of the headsculpt and blaster from the original release in the deluxe that has annoyed people. Source a jedi luke cloak and you've effectively massively superseded a figure that has only recently been bought.
Doesn't bother me as I have the luke I want, but can understand people feeling a little duped by the deluxe release.
Wonder if the Endor Leia will have a deluxe version, too. If so, what will be the accessories? Maybe a Wicket???
