Scored this from Hasbro's 2 figures for S$25 promo.

I'm impressed to see how far Star Wars have come with their articulation. Since picking up 2002's GIJoe's 3 3/4 figures, I've been wondering why Hasbro couldn't translate it to all their toy lines.

I'm glad that they finally came round to it in recent years, as evidenced in their Star Wars and Marvel lines.

This is all the figure comes with, which is sufficient to enact his final showdown on the Death Star.

The cuffs are quite over-sized, which is the norm for 3 3/4 accessories.

I picked this figure up cos I wanted a ROTJ Luke figure with updated articulation to take on Evolutions' Vader, as the only ROTJ Luke figures I still have are the POTF2 Jedi Luke with very limited articulation by today's standards and the POTF2 Final Jedi Duel Jedi Luke which is in a static pose. In short, they're very outdated.



Speaking of the POTF2 Final Jedi Duel Cinema Scene, it was was one of my earliest Star Wars box sets and I loved it cos it captured one of the iconic moments from Star Wars...



It seemed to be a good time to re-enact that scene with an updated Jedi Luke in hand, with Star Wars Evolution's Darth Vader and Star Wars Evolution's Palpatine already in my collection.

So here goes...

...and realising that in all probability, he inherited his mother's genes.

Hasbro's Star Wars Legacy Collection Jedi Luke is indeed a fun toy to muck around with, even more so when you have the accompanying members in the Death Star II showdown.

    @Adrian & Leon: Glad you enjoyed the sequence.

    @Marcus: Seems sideshow set the precedent for gorilla arms with their 12" version.
