What's your fave? In light of the best 1/6 SW figure to date i thought i'd make a poll.

I went ANH... I like Luke more in ESB and ROTJ, by far, but the outfit in ANH is just WAY more iconic.

Jedi.

I saw ANH and ESB when I was very, very young, I was just old enough when I saw ROTJ for the memory to take root. That image of a cloaked Luke striding into a shadowy Jabba's palace waving his hand and choking pig guards is burned into my brain. Plus, the green lightsaber... so badass.

Why "Bespin"... and not "Rebel" or "Commander"?


Farmboy
Commander
Jedi

That seems better. And X-wing PILOT.

So you two are driving the choice based on what you own? I thought this was about your favorite look for Luke...

It always becomes an "I want" thread. :slap

I love the deleted scene of him building the green lightsaber too. So awesome, no idea why that was cut.

Bespin Luke.

It's been my favorite look ever since I was a kid. The Bespin fatigues, the blaster, the original blue lightsaber, the carbon freezing duel, there's just something that really stands out for me. I was always fascinated by him being beaten to a pulp and getting his hand chopped off. The Bespin Luke figures have always been my favorite as well. The original vintage (though I hated that yellow lightsaber and swapped it out with a blue later on), the POTFII, etc.

I also like him better as a character. He's not a little whiny punk farm boy like he is in the first one but he's also not some hand clasping, "wise", Jedi type either.

It's like the perfect middle ground. He still uses the blaster and he wields the lightsaber. I'd also agree that the original Farmboy look is probably the most iconic. That would probably my second favorite look.

rushmore223
10-18-2012, 08:39 PM
For me, Farmboy Luke most represents the series. Likely cause the first movie had such a massive impact on my young psyche.

That being said, I voted X Wing Luke just cause I always liked the look of the flight suit. Farmboy would be #2 for me.

SAB

Jedi Luke.
The all black look was just totally badass to my 6yr old self. .....and to my 35 yr old self :D

Lucas has never hid his Japanese inspirations and Jedi Luke is a ninja.

Plus it blew my young mind he had a green lightsaber. That rewrote the rules of my world :D

I agree. I always felt that Bespin/ESB Luke was a good middle ground for Luke, when he was partly a badass... yet still vunerable, impetuous, stubborn; flawed. So you felt nervous for him when he goes up against Vader. Superman Jedi is boring. Farmboy makes everyone like Han best.

But Commander Skywalker is pretty damn cool.

Bespin Luke for me.

The movie was the best in the trilogy, one of the most memorable movie moments of all time, and the highlight of Luke's character arc came with the outfit. And word for word what Wor-Gar said. No contest.

I'm more nostalgic for the Jedi look. That was the one I wanted most as a kid and never had. Dug the black on black with the lone glove.

However the Bespin outfit is by far my favorite. I can't really put my finger on it, but to me that's Luke. I feel the same way about Han too.

I do love how Luke's costuming goes from a light one in ANH, to a grey(ish) one in Empire, and the finally black in Jedi.

Gotta go Jedi. When he took off his hood in Jedi revealing our hero being cast in all black, to me it was so unexpected and it's Luke now finally showing off his mastered skills, too impressive. Of course I wore the Xwing costume when I was like 5 or so, and that'll always stand out to me as a great looking design.

CaptnRex
10-20-2012, 11:10 PM
Jedi. Although I'd buy any version going by HT's Bespin figure.

An X-Wing or Snowspeeder Luke would be awesome.

Sideshow are doing a Hoth Luke aren't they?

Prime Clone

:lol

Heh, yeah. Funny thing is, the SS version looked good as a prototype, but was let down by the paint apps (possibly the worst example from the line).

But in general, I just love the outfit, and Lucasfilm publicity photos from back in the day made it clear that was what Luke was going to be wearing for his "further adventures" (sans jacket, anyway).

I envisage him wearing his "Yavin gear" for diplomatic missions and his "Bespin fatigues" for flight missions (as an X-wing pilot ground uniform).

Tee-Kay

Had to go with X-Wing pilot Luke. Now HT have shown what they can come up with, a ANH luke with both Farmer and Pilot outfits would be an instant buy for me.

Luke with Endor poncho and helmet.
The look is so uniconic for me that it didn't even register when I was thinking about Luke's various outfits (but I default pretty quickly to the Bespin outfit as a favourite). If SSC ever releases a 1:6 speeder bike, it would make for a pretty cool custom. Hard to see HT making that look a dedicated release, but you never know. Maybe as part of a Jedi Luke DX package?

Really? The Endor outift? That one is Iconic for you? You must be a bit younger than me, cause everytime I see that look, all I can think of is little Teddy Bears somehow defeating the Empire. I remember being embarrassed as a 12 year old at that. Was a good lesson for me, as the Phantom Menace didnt hit me quite so hard because ROTJ had prepared me for what Lucas was capable of.

For Iconic, it will always be Luke in his farm boy outfit, staring at the twin suns of Tatooine. At least for me.

I said "uniconic", to the point that when I was doing a slideshow of Luke's looks throughout the series in my mind's eye, I didn't even recall the Endor outfit.

I'm assuming we're about the same age (I'm 41 - edit: did the math and if you were 12 in '83 we're very close!) but that was sort of what I was getting at with my original response to farkasember (basically I'm assuming he's a little younger and Jedi made a bigger impression on him than it did for us older cats). Now that Bespin Luke is in the bag, the only other Luke iteration I could see buying would be the farmboy Luke. I never cared too much for the black outfit, just find it a bit plain.

Ahhhhh. Thats what happens when I split my attention between my work and the forum, didnt notice the un.

Yeah, we are the same age, born in '71.

I agree with the Jedi outfit, and to get even nitpickier (is that a word?) I always thought his hair was too "1950's choir boy". Thought he should have looked a little more rough around the edges, battle scarred, dangerous. instead he just look's like the guy's knocking on my door asking if i'd like a copy of the Watchtower.

Haha, yes, I thought that same thing in my reply but was lazy and skipped mentioning it. The haircut, along with the other changes to Hamill's face between Empire and Jedi, make the Jedi look my least favourite.

I think age isn't the test for good taste, so much as age just has to do with which iteration of the character had the most impact on you. I saw Star Wars right around my 6th Bday, therefore Farmboy Luke was my first exposure to the character, and the look I will always think of when the character is mentioned. Had I been 3 when I saw it, it probably wouldn't have had much of an impact on me, but Bespin Luke would have been the one I identify the character as.

I went with Bespin. I like how DeFabio described him as being in that transitional time where he outgrew being a whiny farmboy, but not a jedi knight yet.

But honestly the ROTJ outfit does the least for me. I do think the one black glove is pretty cool, but that Aunt Beru haircut he's got really knocks the whole look down a few notches!

Just to reply to Rushmore there - I always coveted the little Kenner farmboy Luke figure as a kid. Luke in that period defines the whole SW vibe - especially in an iconic, retro chic 70s way!! :rock

So although Bespin is my favourite look overall, Tatooine Luke is a close second - purely because the first film is such a cultural juggernaut, that the period from 1977 till about 1980 will always have the most resonance in a LOT of people's lives. :cool:

I would agree that the Tattooine Farmboy Luke is the most iconic look. It screams Star Wars. But my favorite looks are Bespin and Jedi with the cloak. The end scenes of ESB with Luke facing off against Vader and the beginning of Jedi with Luke at Jabba's Palace are my most favorite scenes in the entire trilogy. :lecture
