Luke Skywalker Snowspeeder Pilot


A short while back, after being impressed by Marco's Haul of Unique Custom Figures I asked Jim (Plisnithus7) if he could make a custom figure for me in a similar spirit and style.


Most of you know I collect Luke X-Wing Pilot and X-Wing Fighter stuff.

But what I was looking for here was a vintage-style Luke Snowspeeder Pilot from the Hoth scenes in ESB.

I had a few specifications,

*I wanted Luke to have the Snowspeeder grappling blaster, and for him to have an angled posed arm to hold it.

*An orange visor and a chin strap.

*Grey boots and gloves.


Jim also made a nice touch by adding a lightsaber to Luke's belt  Cool


The grapple blaster even has an action feature - the grapple hook is removable, with a length of string for Luke to go climbing AT-ATs  Smile


Needless to say, I'm well chuffed with this cool custom.


Top work, Jim, thanks  cheers
