salut TIGers, some opinions needed on this Luke...

My feeling is that he may be a headswap? He has the very pale face with a wobbly neck on what appears to be regular sculpted body.

Interesting that the helmet decals are positioned VERY low to the visor (I haven't seen decals placed this low before).

Wolff, Uli, et al, what do you think?

Thanks in advance for info/thoughts Smile Whatever, he is most welcome in my LXW focus Cool

I have a Luke x Wing wich i bougt from new when i was a kid. His head is loose , you can pull it op a littel bit from the body.
His body and head is more " soft" then alle the other Lukes i got. Wich is more "plastic" like. The helmet decals are more like paintet on than the others i godt.
The boots are paintet as well i think. As well with all other collor on him.

Im not with him rigth now. So i cant check th COO. But it sunds like it could be like the one i got.

Hope this helps you out a bit.

Hi again

Took some pictures of my Luke with a " normal" Luke. Mine looks mutch like the one you got . Big eyes , eye brows that are big and not like the other lukes.

Mine has the same writing on the same leg but the Coo is erased. No bar.
His armes and legs are thinner than the " normal" Luke

hi søren

The right one in your picture is a trilogo/(pbp well pbp has white face) Luke Xwing. I have found some of this variation in Danish collections. You can see that the COO is gone it's removed and there are a scar. The plastick the figure are made in are different than the normal luke Xwing. A figure that are a bit rar.

The left one is a regular Luke Xwing with a raised bar.

Well regarding the Hong kong version Arto Detour has pictures of are bought in the USA. I have had several of those. The collers are not as bright as regular Luke Xwings it looks almost faintet. And I think the head is right.

Soren and Hansole - thanks for the pictures and input, guys.

Soren - I also thought your Luke was PBP, I have a PBP (from Javi) and it is very similar.
Thanks for posting the pics Smile

Hansole - investigating my hong kong Luke some more I think that his torso is more flexible and 'rubbery' than my other Lukes. The most curious thing for me is the decals on the helmet that are positioned very low?

Varients, such a minefield eh? lol! Thanx guys Cool
