Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Scored an extra VC87 Luke Skywalker(Lightsaber Construction) from this year's "Deleted Scenes" wave of Vintage. This is the newer, much more recent variant where Luke has much paler skin on his face and hands...noticeably so. This was a change made to the figure for inclusion in the Grand Moff Tarkin(Wave 5) case assortment that just recently started hitting. The first version of this Luke had a bit of a tanned and ruddy appearance and Hasbro must have thought they needed to fix it since Mark Hamill didn't have a pronounced tan in the original SW trilogy.
Voila. Pale Rider Luke.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
