The work and research I have done for Luke Bespin has been a huge learning circle for myself and like many early works of research, this has become very much out dated and contains much information which I now know to be incorrect. I hate mis-information in the hobby, there is simply too much of it especially in the age of facebook, impatient collectors and general ignorance. It's bothered me for a long time that people still use this as a reference, I truly appreciate the amount of views it has received and the comments, but it is unfortunately out of date.

But fear not.... My new work is heavily under construction and soon a much more accurate and comprehensive guide to Luke Bespin will be available to view.

Thanks to all who viewed

Haha Very Happy Cheers Doc, don't know about Admiral, not sure I'm ready for that, I can't even arm my troops! Forget to mention, that's not a complete set of weapons, I used a few more than once for the benefit of the pic's, so maybe just add a star to the General for know, until I can get better kit for my troops!

I'll try and keep this one better updated as a reference source than the last one, I know a few people asked questions I never answered while I was off line, I'll have to chase them up, although probably long answered by now.

Me and Pat have talked Bespin Luke a lot, and a while back he posted me the 2 bootlegs and some Ledy overstock parts for free, which was an awesome gesture Very Happy

Wolff and I sent a string of e-mails over Christmas, the result of which was ultimately cracking the Bespin Luke COO riddle! It also ended up with Wolff getting me a Poch Luke, a figure I'd long had missing.

All in all there a good people here Very Happy

Cheers Clint, it may look nice but eventually you'll get sick of the sight of that damn blue card in my posts! Very Happy

It's taken me years to get this far, the thought of actually doing this with any other character at all pains me greatly, plus I don't actually think I'd live long enough!!! Sad

I'm going to document everything I know up here, then it's there for anyone to browse, I just haven'y sorted it all out yet, so it may take a while. I'm still keeping an eye out for that LS :Drool:

Cheers Javi, more to come! I still have the picture of the Bespin Luke's you sent me from childhood collections in Spain which is in my archive and helped greatly with my work, any future offerings will always be greatly appreciated cheers

Anyway should probably finish off the paint section at least while we're here.
