Luke Skywalker in Hoth Battle Gear

So the students' presentation down here in Florida went well. They earned the "Best Comprehensive Research Project" Award. Many people told us that our group was the best at the Q&A section at the end of the presentation.

This post is just a follow up to yesterdays. Luke Skywalker in Hoth Battle Gear was the last of the Hoth figures to enter my collection. Luke comes in his snow suit with his monoculars sculpted to his torso. He came armed with a laser rife. I always thought it was odd that he didn't come with a lightsaber for fighting the Wampa. It's the only weapon we see him use while dressed in this costume.

He's got some really great details to his sculpt, from the wrinkles to the goggles around his neck. He's an all around nice figure and worth picking up.


  1. These Star Wars figures were all over Puerto Rico when i lived there as a kid Buzz.My older cousin had tons of em' and would never let anybody near them.I still have a pic of myself and some of my cousins in P.R. holding an X-WING fighter.I was about 5 and Star Wars was big around there at the time.

  2. Another great one from my youth.
