Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) (ESB 1980-82)




What do you bring to wear when you're meeting an acclaimed Jedi Master? Why your best brown, of course! Like Han and Leia, Luke is afforded many a change of outfit throughout the trilogy (sorry Chewie!). This outfit, which we actually see first on Dagobah then on Bespin, has a lot of pockets for all your survival needs. You will also notice that a deactivated lightsaber is hanging from Luke's utility belt.

This Luke comes with a lightsaber (in yellow, and not the true blue) and a the same blaster pistol that Han carries. The figure has a variation in the hair coloring - it got darker blonde later in its run. Bespin Luke came on two ESB cards (they changed the background photo) and an ROTJ card.

Why should you get this figure? Five reasons:


1. This and Jedi Luke are the essential dueling figures.

2. You can't visit the Dagobah or Cloud City set without Bespin Luke.

3. Comes with a lightsaber and a blaster! How can you go wrong?

4. Sorry - a detraction - his hand does not come off (at least, not until the new Bespin Luke in the 1990's).

5. Recreate the harrowing hanging-by-his-knees-under-Cloud-City ordeal. Wait...his knees don't bend. Damnit!

Backstory:

I'll refer you to the Wookieepedia article for Luke's full story, and just add that in this outfit he not only gets trained by a Jedi Master, he also fights one and loses his hand. Keep this outfit for nostalgia, man!

Buy Generic Viagra said...

I believe that conditions like Impotence are serious disorders and should not be taken lightly at all. Thus, through my detailed articles and blogs, I hope to raise awareness amongst the men regarding various sexual health issues faced by men. Through my write-ups, I wish to enlighten them about the ways to prevent this condition and how to treat them effectively. Generic Viagra being the chief pill while Kamagra is also effective in having the perfect Kama.
