I don't like the pose. Looks like He-Man.

That pose may work for the McQuarrie-style Luke, or He-Man as you said, but it doesn't work here. He's holding that hilt wrong, too. :lol

The exclusive looks much more natural though.

Picky, picky, picky:D...I like it. It's stylized to be sure, but does harken back to the classic 1977 theatrical poster with Luke holding his saber aloft.

Not digging it at all... and the exclusive has a better pose, but still looks pretty dumb.

It also looks like he could be tapping the ceiling.

"You keep that racket down, kids!"

Yeah, I'm not liking it. Then again, I haven't bought a GG bust in years.

I like the concept behind the exclusive, the whole "star gazing kid" angle; but GG just sucks all kinds of ass.

:sick

A collectible of a character playing with a collectible of a ship :). Interesting

I have a few minibusts, but I do not like this one .

Gentle Giant's offerings really haven't impressed me over the last few years and this one doesn't change that trend. I respect the effort, but that non-traditional pose looks odd to me.

well, almost all the GG minis I have are from Episode 4. Although I do have all the bounty hunters from ESB and Jango. I WAS really lloking forward to Luke, but I'm not too thrilled about the lightsabre pose, and don't want to join the club for the other.

Lame.... Not liking the pose at all.

I really used to like the GG products and still enjoy quite a few that come out here and there, but I am really surprised at this one. Not sure what they were trying to "capture" in the sculpt. Really a strange offering of Luke.

Actually, he's trying to get the smoke detector to turn off.

Yeah I really don't care for this either, the Regular or the Exclusive. The likeness doesn't look good and the whole piece in general just looks off.

To say the least I'm very disappointed with GG not only for this release but the way they continue driving their company into the ground. Got to wonder what they are doing with the release dates. :banghead
:gun GG

Real dissapointing especially compared to how good the Hoth Luke mini bust is.

That pose is crap, looks like he is going to change the light bulbs in the house, or is hunting spiders on the ceiling...:o

i agree, the pose is horrible, but this is normal that happens with the busts of GG , Some few ones are the chosen ones to buy.

thats very true. But thats what really sucks here. I have Ben, han chewie leia x-wing luke and han and Luke i ST gear and they ALL have good poses.


And now they finally give us Farmboy Luke...

I like the new Hoth bust coming but this is does not look very good so far.

I don't think its horrible, but it's not exciting either. Almost any other pose than this would have been better.

His hand held straight out would have made more sense I think (even with the promo shot it's based off of); it would convey the moment Luke is first given his father's saber.
