Love seeing the concept pics for these statues but I don't think I'll get any of the Star Wars pieces. The only one I would have jumped on is Darth Vader but I'm not buying 3 statues to get him.

After seeing the face on the concept drawing, I can understand why they are going all out to have it removed from the internet.

They're good, though I do prefer the Troopers. The images were first posted at SF, from what I understand whoever took the pics did so without permission and in an area where photographs weren't permitted. Not sure if this was b.c of pending license(s) or something else. Once I read that Shorudan asked at SF for them to be removed I removed them from here. :)

Why not leave up the picture? We can still discuss it and it's pretty certainly coming to collectors.

It appears the Luke HS is being worked on. From what I gather...XM is wanting to have the ability to have a switch out head so you can display either a X-Wing fighter pilot, and/or Luke.

I think they nailed the head sculpt.. personally i dont like when they use movie portraits like they doing for the vader.. i like it being a generic version of the character and love everything about this one.

They've only done like two actual likenesses, and both were for the same statue. There isnt much to go by.

To those who saw them in person, which sculpted SW characters will be the centerpiece of the line? Heard Grievous and Maul were done really well?

I like the theme. Climbing out of the cockpit.

I'll bet XM is cursing the fact that the helmet has an opening at the front because now they have to get Luke's likeness in there. :lol

I've seen the sculpt and the likeness was spot on. The question is whether the paint can live up to the sculpt. I know they have it in them, so I can't wait until they show the full pics!

I like it a lot. Hard to tell if the face is accurate but it's definitely not "off" like the usual XM fair. Definitely something I'm interested in but I feel that the Sideshow version is long overdue and will probably be unveiled in the next year or two. That outfit can really benefit from mixed media and it'll be half the price. I don't know, tough call.

I definitely prefer the look of mixed media and agree that the Snowspeeder flight suit would be fantastic! I think this is a great looking statue but just don't care for the all sculpted look that much. Good luck to those chasing this one down though.

Face sculpt looks great in the last photo. But I'm not really feeling this statue overall.. The pose looks a bit weird and I don't like him looking up like that. I love Luke in his X-wing suit but personally I don't find this appealling enough to buy.

Yeah and I don't like him looking up too much, however if I could buy it at normal retail without the shipping prices I probably would. With it I don't think it's worth enough for me. Shame as I don't like SS' new luke.

I think it's a pretty awesome statue. The stopper for me is that I prefer the mixed media look of Premium Format figures and the sculpted snow suit just doesn't work for me. Visually, I like the pose, the base and sculpt seems pretty solid...

I do really like it though I think MM would have looked better. What's stopping me though is probably the price it'll cost to get in the US. I like it, I just don't know if I lik eit enough to pony up for it. I certainly won't be getting SS' version though.

I think lots of Pfs with fabric work great for Star Wars. I want a Hoth Luke and Pilot Empire Luke, By now Sideshow should have made both Him having his blaster is not correct, but I am not one who cares but they should give him his holster then. Awesome work I think this is one that should be fabric.

Wow! Thanks for the pic. This to me is by far the best Luke statue ever done. A little concerned that the suit looks a bit too shiny, although that could be the lighting used for the photo.
