    ...or it could be a little bit of column A and some of column B.
    It does seem that with the older character and alien sculpts the paint work is easier to pull off. I think that both ANH Luke and Han turned out great and so far are among my favorites of the line.

    Got mine today. I would take some pix but I don't have the spare time right now. I'm not that hard to please when it comes to these guys but here's my two pennies. The hair color looks okay to me. Not as dark as the pix. I was worried about that but no more. The whites of the eyes are almost flesh color, would've liked to see them a little brighter. The sculpt is of course amazing but I still think Jedi Luke is more Luke, for me anyway. Maybe it's the paint that makes me feel that way, dunno. I don't like the tunic. Probably because the proto tunic looks so much more on model. It doesn't look as bad as the pix but the fabric they chose is horrible. It's too thin and the weave is way too big. Why couldn't they use the same material as the pants? Not to mention the color which is definitely light cream, not white. Another detail I may not have noticed if it wasn't for you guys on this board, heh heh.
    Over all though I do like the figure alot aside from the darn tunic. The rest of the accessories and clothing are top notch, what I've come to expect from Sideshow. (I havn't taken the floppy hat out of the box yet.) I am happy to have him. The more I look at him the more I see Luke. So thank you Sideshow for another amazing Star Wars collectible.

    IMHO, you're nuts if you think either of these is better than Old Ben.

    I just got mine. About what I expected after seeing the recent in-hand pics:

    The sculpt is brilliant, but the paint apps are very sub-par. Repaint necessary (for me, anyway).

    The tunic really does blow and is pretty much what I would expect on a $20 figure, not a $70 one. I'm speaking of the quality of the material as well as how shoddily the snap was done.

    The accessories are awesome! I wish Sideshow put as much effort into the head paint and tunic.

    Very happy with how the boot/wrappings turned out. In fact, that even makes the inferior tunic a bigger blow.

    Inclusion of the stormtrooper blaster but lack of stormtrooper belt remains head-scratching.

    I don't know if this will vary, but the way they painted the fingernails on the hands is pretty scary! These should be some creature's hands, not Lukes.

    The Buck remains the cipher it always was.

    Overall, I'm LUKEwarm at best on this one. Heh.

    In the end, not a horrible figure. But far from great (especially for the money). I'd give it about 6.5/10. With some time, work and more $$ it can be turned into a 9+. Sideshow could have done better.

    I still stand by my statement that it turned out pretty good. Just needs a little TLC to really shine. But it's not $20 bad.

    I'm not saying it's $20 bad at all. Only the tunic is.

    Overall, as-is I would say this would be good for $50-55 or so. But $70? Nah. Because it's gonna take another $20-$30 for me to get this to look the way it should.

    I was hoping you'd be more pleased with it in-hand.

    My biggest gripe now about the tunic isn't so much the weave or material as the cream color. Like I said before, the color of Luke's cream tunic should have been the color of Han's white shirt and visa versa. The tunic looks even more yellow against the stark white of Leia's dress.

    Maybe a little Tatooine dirt and dust will help.
