That is indeed true, he's much more known in Endor gear as HELMET ON. So it doesn't bother me either. Plus I'm going to venture a guess and say it's safe to say, if you want the helmet off look...more than likely the DSII and/or Luke Jedi head will fit the ball socket. It's just a head swap, no biggie IMO.The helmet being sculpted to the figure is a selling point for me. Most of time removable helmets look like **** and this is pretty scene specific. Yes I know the card photo has no helmet...but this version of the character is clearly more defined with the helmet.
Looking at the top right picture, it looks like the lower part of Luke's Tatooine tunic is visible, so I would guess it would be the Jabbas palace Luke which is under there, which would be correct at that point of the movie.Will this Luke have a vest like from Jabba‘s Palace and the Ewok village or no vest like in the Death Star?
That’s what I’m hoping. We don’t technically have the vintage Jedi Knight Luke. No gloved hand. With the poncho off and head swapped this could be that Luke and Luke as he appeared on the Mandalorian.Looking at the top right picture, it looks like the lower part of Luke's Tatooine tunic is visible, so I would guess it would be the Jabbas palace Luke which is under there, which would be correct at that point of the movie.
Looks like he has the arthritis with those wrist joints.On a purely aesthetic level, I can actually appreciate the helmet being permanently attached. Would have been nice to get a separate head, sans helmet, but guess that would have affected the price point. But yeah, I think it looks good.

One thing that does NOT look though, is the fact that they're using the old, bloated-wrist hands that came on the first incarnation of TVC Jedi Luke back in 2010. It's odd that Hasbro fixed those hands for the recent update to Jedi Luke, but didn't use them here.

I mean, let's be honest, they haven't exactly been super careful about the images for marketing lately, or super detail-oriented, so it's entirely possible - look at the black series debacle with the Kir Kanos figure/naming. On the other hand, they've also kinda not cared about the final product either, if we look at the Fett with missing sensor bars. So...there is probably an equal chance either way.What are the odds that the prototype for the images has the bad wrists, but the final product has the updated wrists?
I knew he took the helmet off in the film! (Plus there's that photo on the card, Ed!)
Looks accurate, but there is a black buckle as well - I'm curious to see how it disconnects in the back. For those speculating, the head / helmet are separate sculpts, but will be connected, you can clearly see they were cast in different colored plastic. I don't think this should be happening in TVC, especially when the body is being reused. Make it removable, or provide an alternate head - these are cheap updates, they can spend a few more cents per figure to go further for loyal consumers.
