I found this pic posted by theogriz, hidden away in the Rebelscum forums. This is definitely the expression I prefer to see on a 1/6 Luke figure. What do you guys think?

I prefer it the way it is, adds more personality to the piece in my opinion. There's already too many Sideshow 1/6 figures with pokerface expressions as it is.

I think everyone thinks of that grim determined Luke when they think of Luke in ROTJ. That's part of the reason why I like the expression he has, its kinda like Sideshow is saying, "We're not just making the same old star wars toys here."

I'll confess I didn't like it at first, but upon closer inspection I think his mouth is open as if he's about to say something moreso than if he's surprised. Actually, it seems like everytime I look at it I see it differently. LOL

How about the 1/4 scale face? I thought that was off.

Just fine. I plan to have him in a "Take me to jabba now" pose so the expression works perfectly.

Patience, when they announce the Jedi Luke you'll get that pose or something similar. You cant do an ANH Luke with a ROTJ head now can you.



Jesse :p

I guess the majority tend to think he looks like he has a "take me to jabba now" expression. But I kind of see more of a "Leia is your twin sister" look.

at first I didnt like the ROTJ face sculpt, then after I saw part of the movie I realized its pretty close.
But i too agree that the face on the 1/4 is off a little. and im not sure, but I think its the paint app and not the the sculpt so much.

Yeah, I'm not saying the 1/6 face is terrible. It certainly beats the 1/4 face by a wide margin.

I think the 1/6 sculpt is stunning, my objection is that it's too specific a moment - it's like the sculpt was modelled off of that one still in the movie where he was talking to Jabba, instead of most every other shot where he had a closed mouth and looked determined and cool.

I disagree about the 1/4 sculpt.

I think Matt's 1/6 sculpt is the best yet of Mark Hamill as he looked in Episodes V & VI...which is to say, after the automobile accident that necessitated plastic surgery to salvage his nose (and the addition of the ESB snowbeast attack and bacta tank scenes to explain his changed appearance).

Andy's 1/4 sculpt captures the younger, pre-accident actor as he looked in Episode IV very well indeed. To my eye, anyway.

Yeah he does. The picture posted at the beginning of this thread is the way I would have preferred Luke. The current head sculpt looks like he's worried about something.

the 1/4th luke sculpt changed from an open mouth prototype to a closed mouth final version. i've heard sideshow is gonna tweak the 1/6th version as well. i hope so.

an adjustment of the eyebrows and the mouth would make the sculpt perfect.

...to leave the sculpt alone. It looks terrific. It sold out in less than a week.

:cool:

If they are going to be doing some tweaking, wonder if it will still be early 2006 for shipping?

It would be nice if they did some improvements, but yeah, this is due in the first Quarter of next year, which starts in less then a month and a half. I think this figure is already into production.

"One more complaint about the face sculpt and I'm gonna snap this guy's neck! Don't think I won't do it!"

That can be the face sculpt for crazy old desert hermit Luke.

Wow, he actually looks pretty good in that pic. If they ever do Ep 7, he definitely needs that beard!!

This may not make sense, but....

I have no problem with the sculpt. I think the sculpt is dead-on accurate.

I DO have a problem with the pose. I wish a "closed-mouth" pose had been chosen, but for what it is it looks right.

In other words, it looks awesome for what the sculptor was trying to do, but I wish he'd been trying to do something else.

I agree with you Hjalamr. The sculptor's talents are evident in the detail and resemblance seen in the face. I just wish the expression had been a little different.

The open mouth still looks right to me...and besides, it means he can borrow Thunderball Bond's aqualung.
