Red Five™, do you copy? Rebel X-Wing™ pilot, Luke Skywalker, joins our Legends in 3-Dimensions line based on his appearance in Star Wars: A New Hope! This all-new sculpt features the daring Jedi™ in his X-Wing pilot uniform and helmet, with visor and comlink. The 1:2 scale resin bust measures approximately 10-inches and sits atop a X-Wing themed pedestal. He is limited to 1,000 pieces and comes packaged with a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Available for pre-order on Thursday, August 19th at 9 p.m. PST/ Friday, August 20th at 12 a.m. EST.

Other than the base, it looks great. They should add the wings to those engines because they look more like soda cans than actual X-Wing´s engines in my opinion. Make the wings removable and you also solve any possible breakage problem during shipping.

That’s nice. Definite purchase for me.

I take it that this will be on general release and not just PG members?

Likeness is OK.
Base looks very weird to me. Why not use his lightsaber as the base? Isn't that how the rest of the line is (for characters that used a saber)?

Not feeling the face. Looks bloated. Reminds me of Joe Don Baker.
Agree on the base - Looks like soda cans. Needs wings.

The helmet shape is a bit rotund and the pedestal makes me feel really uncomfortable, like an X-Wing is impaling my chest.

Wow, I think that they did a great job with the sculpt!!

I'm not sold on the stand though. It seems a little weird to have the nose of the X-Wing jammed into his torso. I mean how did that discussion go in the design meeting? I wonder if it went something like this:

Gentle Giant Executive (GGE): So, what's the idea for the next Star Wars bust?

Gentle Giant Lickspittle (GGL): Well we were thinking of doing a 1:2 bust of Luke Skywalker in his pilot gear.

GGE: Cool, cool. Any ideas for the stand?

GGL: Well we were thinking of using a X-Wing.

GGE: An X-wing? I'm having trouble picturing that. Would Luke be positioned on top of the X-Wing?

GGL: No, we envisioned that the ship would come inside him.

GGE: **silence**

GGL: Ma'am?

GGE: You're all fired.

I meant to order this last month but forgot to. Looks like he's starting to pre-sell out at a couple of retailers. I went ahead and placed my order with GG. I think this is going to be one of those pieces that look better in person. I even like the base.
