Doesn't anyone else think this looks like a (used) brown handkerchief instead of a poncho. Floppy hat & goggles must be cloth / Plastic to continue the mixed media theme & is the hat going to be removeable?

Personally I'd hope the hat is removable - the poncho's very cool, but the hat's a bit... camp? :lol

Dam, come on nobody copied it.................

I almost did, Jesse. You pretty much know what it's going to look like. The pose and base and exactly the same, and you've already seen the pic of the hat and goggles.

The poncho is light beige with a brown stripe that runs down the edges. I wonder if the poncho and hat are removable? If they are, then that instantly makes this piece much more appealing to me. I could sell my regular Luke and just get this one instead of having to buy both.

dstephan
06-03-2005, 08:52 AM
The poncho and hat are removeable. However the binoculars are stuck to the hand on the exclusive version instead of hanging on the belt in the regular version.

And buzzardio - read your PMs.

Excellent news Dave! If I can get this I can cancel my order for the normal one - don't mind the binoculars stuck in the hand, love the poncho, and I can decide whether the hat's cool or not in person.

Fingers crossed I can get it... :hat

Anyone ever remember seeing Luke in poncho / hat on film in Ep 4 (or any other)?

I couldn't remember it & I would have preferred a medal version to match the Han exclusive with the different outfit although that would've required no rock & a different pose (too expensive to make for SSC).

Viking28
06-03-2005, 11:59 AM
I didnt even think to make a copy of it!:lol Hey WK if you dont want your Luke exclusive I'll be more than happy to take him off your hands!

RichPG
06-03-2005, 12:24 PM
However the binoculars are stuck to the hand on the exclusive version instead of hanging on the belt in the regular version.

If the poncho covers the hand with the binoculars (see pic), what was the point of altering the sculpt?

CobbyD
06-03-2005, 12:36 PM
I'm all for exclusives but this is just plain lazy. They've just made up some clothes luke never wore in any of the films thrown them on and hey presto.

why didn't they use the poncho LUKE actually wears in moss eisley in ANH, as it stands and with that hat it just looks a bit un-Starwars to me.

I'd be interested to know what I'd think of it if I had any chance of actually getting one though.

elwood49
06-03-2005, 12:43 PM

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe the poncho shows up in one of the deleted scenes like the hat does. I posted a picture I found of the hat, but I never found anything with the poncho.

Gazmog
06-03-2005, 12:46 PM
Well, all the figures released thus far have had exclusives that offer little in the way of a significant difference in appearance.

The major difference that shouts exclusivity is the edition size.

He's also wearing it on the back of the Trilogy Bonus disc, with George in a typical 70's shirt & coat. He never seems to be actually wearing it like the pic, always seems to just have it draped over his shoulders with the front open.

Guys,

Luke wears the poncho IN the movie ANH. He has it on, while walking to the Falcon on Mos E.

come on guys!

Gruson
06-03-2005, 01:51 PM
There is a scene in Mos E. in ANH wear Luke has the poncho on. Right before they get on the Falcon.

Come on guys! :)

I knew somebody would know!:rock

He picks it up when he sells his speeder, we see him put it on from behind, he is wearing it when he boards the falcon but then when he is seated - poncho is gone for good.

The colour of the beige of the poncho looks much darker on film than SSC pic & textured like wool, not cotton looking like the SSC pic.

It really is the briefest of moments that he is wearing the item & the hat is never seen on film.

Right, but that poncho is solid brown. That's why the confusion. It's a different poncho than the one from the figure.

I just popped in my Ep. 4 DVD to be sure, and yep---solid brown. Come on yourself Gruson.:p :poke

I guess Luke just has a closet full of ponchos.

Gruson's spot on! Shortly after Luke's receives payment for his speeder and proclaims "I'm never coming back to this planet again", him and Ben make their way to Docking Bay 94. On the way, Luke puts on his poncho and Ben waves to Chewbacca. Bring back memories?:p

Well I tell you what, the binoculars in the hand sure would relieve the awkwardness of the right hand that really bothers me about the piece. It looks like it was designed with them in and they took them out at the last minute.


"We forgot a SDCC exclusive, lets jack those binoculars and then give them back later at SDCC."


I will probably display the piece without the hat and cape, but it should look nice with the binoc's.

So let me get this straight... The exclusive Poncho Luke, is the same as the regular edition. The only difference beeing he has a poncho, floppy hat and his binoculars are not on his belt but in his hand? If thats the case, then this exclusive isnt as bad as I thought it was. The other SW exclusives got alot less accessories then Luke. And at LE 500 it makes one great figure.

It's actually the same. The difference is the quality of the photo, photo scan, and film stock.

He wore the entire outfit in a couple of scenes, but those were all deleted.

That's why this is an exclusive.

It's special.

Wonderboy43
06-04-2005, 07:39 PM
OMG that is lame. Sorry, I had to say it.

Who wants it because it really is cool/better than the regular edition and who wants it because it's an exclusive edition? There is a difference, you know.

I think all these exclusives (tons of them now) are going to send the Sideshow collector market into a crash just like how exclusives and variants nearly destroyed comic books in the 90's. Those $500 variant comics in the 90's are now commanding a buck or three. People get frustrated and sick of it all. I already am. I would punch myself before I spent time, effort and money trying to get a "OK" overpriced Luke figure with a lame-O Gilligan hat. I'd rather see Sideshow put their efforts into quality control than making "special" exclusives. How about an exclusive Willow figure without the bloated frog neck? Or an exclusive-exclusive Taylor that's actually got the dirty space suit this time?

Just my opinion is all.

shaithis77
06-05-2005, 02:01 AM
Well, there aren't that many being produced, so I think that statement is a bit overreactive.

Don't want it? Don't buy it.

We have a lot of cool SW products coming out in the future, so I'm sure we'll satisfy most people at some point.

B Electronic
06-05-2005, 05:49 AM
The only reasonable point I see you making Wonderboy43, is that every figure gets a regular and exclusive version. It seems abit too much. But this exclusive Luke really is a great piece. Just because he has a hat that is similar to a Gilligan's hat, is no reason to piss all over the piece. But to each his own (which applies often enough on this forum :rollin ).

Shaitis, any chance on a Hoth Leia in that future of yours? Or maybe a colloseum Padmé? :poke

elwood49
06-05-2005, 07:17 AM
Who wants it because it really is cool/better than the regular edition and who wants it because it's an exclusive edition? There is a difference, you know.

Well, I getting both the exclusive and the regular, so it doesn't matter. I plan to buy all of the exclusive and regular SW pieces unless they aren't drastically different (Vader and Grievous).


People get frustrated and sick of it all.
Actually, I'm excited about this announcement. I've been wanting an exclusive Luke from the beginning. I didn't care for the figure at first, but once I saw pics of the deleted scenes, I realized it is very accurate. I may take the hat off and just have the poncho.

I hope they make TONS of exclusives and variants when they get to the Ep. 3 Clones.:drool

Sideshow don't let this guy get you down, keep up the good work on the SW line. Everything so far has exceeded my expectations.:rock
