Jedi Luke Premium Format Figure (Sideshow Exclusive Version)

November 19, 2010

I have a number of Sideshow’s PFs, and they’re all quite nice. Pricey but nice. I actually won this one during Sideshow’s recent Spooktacular promotion (a week of contests and giveaways leading up to Halloween), which was a nice surprise since this was a piece that I would have liked, but didn’t really want to pay the $300 price for.

At first this might not have an obvious connection to Jabba, since you may notice that he’s wearing the black glove that he only wore in the latter half of Return of the Jedi, after all of the Jabba scenes. But the Sideshow exclusive version of the piece comes with a swap-out hand that is gloveless and holding the blaster Luke took from one of Jabba’s guards just before he fell into the Rancor pit. It’s not a perfect fit for the statue, since he’s not wearing the cloak that he was wearing during that scene, but it’s close enough for me to include it here. It also reminds me that this is only the second PF statue that is related to Jabba or Jabba’s palace (the other being the Slave Leia PF, which I don’t have yet). I’d love to see a Gamorrean Guard or some of the other aliens from the palace.

The likeness to Mark Hamill is quite good, and while the pose has been a little controversial, I’d say it’s definitely a nice statue. I personally would have preferred something that included his cloak, since that’s a big part of the “Jedi Luke” look for me. Some people are even looking into having custom cloaks made for the statue.

There are rumblings that Sideshow may attempt a Jabba PF. My first instinct is that it would be unworkably big (and expensive) but I’m certainly interested to see what they could come up with.
