It's mine *wub*!

Just got my Luke today from TRU in in Merrilville, IN... ;-)! So here's some pictures and thoughts:

If you this close you're so dead!!

It's yet another lovely maquette *wub*! The only downside is that the LEGO SW sign doesn't even resemble (ok, I've exagurating a bit :'-)) the ones from the other maquettes!
Check out this one from the Blackhole Trooper compared with the Luke one:

The Luke one is has a massproduced look over it with just a printing |-/ , the other has depth & a painting on it.

Now I'm waiting for the long overdue Boba one!

Here's the other maquettes reviewed:

Excellent review copmike! I feel as if I've actually seen the maquette up close in real life. X-D I swear I've even touched it.

Tack for sharing min kompis! *sweet*

Beautiful...I'm really trying to resist these.  Any word on who's next after Boba Fett?

A C-3PO/R2-D2 pair would probably push me over the edge.

Golly gee, Batman! That's too expensive for that, in my view.

Ah yes, I saw a whole shelf of them in my TRU(touched it too!) Too small, and WAY overpriced. Waste of miney. The luke is 6" high! What is that?!?!

Great review!

Not my thing, but a very nice review, thanks for sharing it! I was seriously considering this one when it was originally announced as a 6212 copack item at a particularly good price and then everything changed.

I do, however, seriously ache to get my hands on one of the more traditionally LEGO looking 2ft+ Vaders they use in the official stores (at least they had one here in Orlando). *wub*

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!
