I wanted a chunky belt like he seems to have on the cover

Looks great but still feel like I need to change the boots on mine to be more accurate.

I finally found him in store. Luckily they had 10 of them. Only 2 of them had the hair on properly. All the others were like the Dagobah ones where the hair was glued to high on his head. I put the Bespin belt on him. I have to say I really do like it. I don't think it's worth the price they asking for this, but it is a nice figure.

While I'm not really into this figure it would look good next to a sleeveless Mara Jade!
View media item 397501

I made a custom of her previously using Jaina body like yours but I gave her sleeveless arms. If I still had that custom, I would have updated it to modify it to fit the Dagobah Luke arms on it as I had an extra set. I think my original one used Tatooine Luke arms.

Have you guys found the paint apps on the eyes to be better on this release than on the Dagobah Luke?

What exclusive is it? I got mine at Forbidden Planet in Manchester UK. The eye paint apps are WAYY better than on the Dagobah Luke.
Fan Channel exclusives I believe that’s why it’s also at BBTS among others. It’s priced higher than single release Dagobah Luke too.

No. Did he have a cape in those books? I don't recall
I don't think Zahn says anything about a cape in the books but in one of those comics panels (which I think this figure is *really* commemorating, rather than the books) from Bpfassh(?), Luke does have a cape pretty similar to the Lando one.

Well that's a different serirs all together. Different costume. Different everything. But yeah I guess the capes are a LITTLE similar.
Or this?
Panels from the Bimmisaari sequence:

The first set would indicate that Luke may be wearing a Jedi cloak. But it really does look cape-like in that action pose.

Yeah I think he just has a simple black cloak there

Did GameStop just forget about this figure or something? The rest of my bundle arrived three months ago, has anyone that ordered from GameStop received their Luke?

I'm having the same problem...it seems like I've seen all of the others in the wave BUT this figure at retail, and mine's ordered...and Entertainment Earth shows my Luke as shipping in December! Did they run out and have to make more???

Interesting idea, and I had the same one being as I never liked the Dagobah head sculpt. I will never know unless I catch this figure on sale for $20ish. However, I'm not exactly sold on the Endor Luke head either. Something just seems off with the likeness/look for some reason.

I can't speak to any preorders, but they had him in stock on the website a few days ago and mine arrived Thursday.

I recently saw one at my local Gamestop 1 or 2 days ago.
