    Default Re: ANH Luke

    Bleach could easily fix the tunic color. That's the least of its problems.

    Overall, I don't dislike the figure. I'm "meh". It's decent, but lacking.

    Nah, anything under 6 is "fail" to me. 6.5 is just passable. I could probably give this figure a 7.0, but the price, paint apps, Buck and utter disappointment in the tunic prevents me from doing so.

    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.
    Guess things will change when I get him home with other figures, here at the office the color on the tunic looks fine.

    OK so Just passable is equal to decent? Which is he. You said he is just passable but a few posts above you said he was "decent".

    Just winding you up Irish.

    Mine should be here shortly but looking at all the pics I don't see how anyone can say the paint apps are subpar unless you just got a really bad one Carl. The tunic color is my biggest issue still from everything I've seen.

    IMHO, the paint apps obscure the likeness. It looks much less like Hamill from ANH than the sculpt deserves.

    And, yes, the hair is way too dark. The highlights are the color they should have painted the base color of the hair and highlighted it from there.

    But no matter... mine will be repainted anyway.

    I agree with being critical of the paint apps if they hurt the likeness, and compared to the bar figures of Palps and Ben, where the likeness is continued from sculpt to paint, Luke and Han fall short, they look nice, but as DA Josh's Han repaint shows, the likeness of the Han figure can go even further with the correct paint, and I'm sure if someone paints this Luke's eyes over and correctly, we'll be in awe of how much it helps, I really think the big negative factor of paint is the eyes.

    In some shots I agree with you and some shots not. I gotta see it in hand this time honestly.
