I got both the Hasbro and Sideshow versions. Can I trade them in for this one at no cost?

Don't let the price scare you, you are getting two complete figures and a huge wall mountable base. The price looks reasonable for what you are getting.

Re: THROW AWAY your SIDESHOW Bespin Outfit LUKE!! LOL

How could they nail Hamill but not Ford?!
Ugh.
Amazing likeness.
That SS incentive is going to be hard to resist even at that price.
HT knew they had to step up all around for what they're asking.

Re: THROW AWAY your SIDESHOW Bespin Outfit LUKE!! LOL

Oops just re reading and says lightsaber does not light up... well a fool's hope....... Personally I'll prefer HT sticking to 'pivotal' characters, humans preferable, I'm satisfied with SST troopers and aliens.... Let's see if the can nail Han this time........

If going for ESB theme, they could have included his Xwing suit....... who know, perhaps in the future, with a Hoth luke

Re: THROW AWAY your SIDESHOW Bespin Outfit LUKE!! LOL

BBTS has it for $279.

again this isn't just one figure
you are getting two complete figures and a huge wall mountable base
yes there are two true type bodies fully clothed.
at $300 that's about $150 a figure.
Plus Enterbay was charging that much for only 1 figure/ head sculpt.

Re: THROW AWAY your SIDESHOW Bespin Outfit LUKE!! LOL

I would certainly go for a Hot Toy version of Luke in Return of the Jedi.
And even a ROTJ Darth Vader with his removable and detailed effed up face, but that'll certainly go for $600+

Re: THROW AWAY your SIDESHOW Bespin Outfit LUKE!! LOL

I honestly have to say, as a person who loved Star Wars as a kid and who now pretty much hates the series because its really, really stupid (sorry), I do not understand why a "Bespin Luke" was their FIRST CHOICE of figure......I mean SERIOUSLY? This is their debut? Eh, I am truly happy for you SW guys but honestly...a Ben Kenobi? A Vader? A JEDI Luke? .....I'm not digging this.

Well, I bit the bullet and ordered the Exclusive from Sideshow. I went the FlexPay route, so it shouldn't hurt TOO bad... I hope...

Re: THROW AWAY your SIDESHOW Bespin Outfit LUKE!! LOL

It's a GREAT figure.. but 300$ it's a little bit too much for my pocked
It's a shame that a lot of great figures are going to be released but at a price that honestly few can afford.

The head guy at HT said that Bespin Luke was his first SW figure as a child, and his favourite, so that's why they did it first.

Re: THROW AWAY your SIDESHOW Bespin Outfit LUKE!! LOL

The head guy at HT and his mates can afford these figures, we bloody can't!

Bring back the good old days when EVERYONE could afford movie merchandise. When was the last time you bought an MIB Star Wars figure for under 5!? I did.... in 1980!

Action figures from movies were the preserve of bedrooms and playgrounds, NOT detolfs in penthouses!

CHEERS!
