Luke Skywalker - Empire Strikes Back Fatigues
This figure is part of the 2007 Hasbro Star Wars 30th Anniversary Vintage Collection (Wow! That's a mouthful). Probably not one of the most popular figures from this subset of figures, which includes the Snowtrooper, Bossk, IG-88, Princess Leia in her Endor outfit, and little Han Solo in his Snow suit, but I think it's a cool representation of the character at that point in the movie. I say this because it always seems like they make a version of Luke in this outfit that is "Dagobah Dirty" or "Your Not My Father Screaming". Both of which leave little room for a child (big or small) to take Luke on other adventures with out looking like something Yoda dragged from the swamp, or Papa Vader chunked down a air-shaft (I know Luke jumped). This figure seems more universal, like the original vintage figure it is based on. Sure he's in his fatigues, but he could be on Cloud City, Dagobah, the Death Star, back on Tatooine, who knows, that's what makes it kinda of neat. Not to mention he has a ton of articulation and a blaster that can be holstered!
