    Luke Skywalker has had a very bad day on Hoth.

    While on a routine mounted patrol on the surface of the ice world Hoth, the young Rebel Commander had spotted what looked like a meteor falling from the sky, but before he could investigate, the huge clawed paw of a hungry Wampa Ice Creature slammed him off his tauntaun and knocked him out. When Luke regained consciousness some time later, he was hanging upside down in the Wampa’s cave-lair, fastened to the ceiling by solid ice. And on the snow-covered floor of the cave lay his only means of escape — his father’s lightsaber…..

    I have 3 different figures depicting Luke in Hoth gear — Kenner’s original 1980s figure, the 1990s Hasbro Power of the Force Tauntaun with Luke Skywalker, and this one — and I think they all have their virtues. True, the original could not hold a lightsaber, but he could ride the original Kenner tauntaun (it had an ingenious “trap door” saddle into which you inserted the figure’s legs to simulate the character’s being in a covered saddle without worrying about the poor articulation of the original 3.75 inch figure). The costume detailing was good for its time. The Luke in Hoth gear released with the 1990s tauntaun has better detailing in the face (for a figure that size, anyway) and can be posed more realistically as the articulation is specifically designed to “ride” the tauntaun.

    This 2003/2004 Hasbro Star Wars action figure is nicely rendered; the Rebel-issue winter gear — which includes a set of removable goggles — looks good, and the “blood” on Luke’s face (courtesy of the Wampa Ice Creature’s claws) is a nice touch, especially for collectors who like to display their figures in action poses. As a matter of fact, the figure also comes with a lightsaber and a “cave base” that connects with the Wampa figure to recreate the suspenseful scene from The Empire Strikes Back where the Jedi-to-be escapes from the fearsome carnivore.

    Ever since the terrible Hoth Luke was made in the 90′s fans like me wanted a new Luke and now we got one of the best ones yet. The Likeness to the real character is excellent and all of it’s features work great. Plus it connects to the Ultra Wampa to recreate that old seen in the ice cave on Hoth from The Empire Strikes Bacl

    now i’ve heard a bunch of crap on the old hoth luke about its artciulation and a bunch of other crap well its not true the old luke was better because of its color scheme,durability and its detail so what if it can’t have as good of a lightsaber fight this one face is so stupid with the scratches on it. if you want a good hoth luke go with the old one if you can find it this one isn’t worth your money
