Luke Skywalker
(Jedi Knight)
.

I decided to just use a 21st century body for this custom, as Hasbro refuses to make their SW figs with better bodies. It has better articulation and is a lot cheaper than anything else out there, within acceptable limits.  If I ever get around to making my own head I'll probably use a Dragon body, but until then,...

His belt is simply a repaint from the Bespin Luke, sans holster, and his boots are Dragon German officer's boots.  The rest of his costume was taken from the original figure, I plan on altering the sleeves to fit his new body, but since I'm planning on using a dragon in the future I'm going to wait on that for a little while.

I'm still in the process of finishing a head for this figure, but here's a few shots of what I've been kicking around.

Here's my current unfinished sculpt.

For the most part, Hasbro's accessories have been fairly good as far as detail goes, but they are usually not in the correct scale and tend to look more like a cheap toy rather than a collector's item.

One of the main problems with the accessories is the lightsaber.  It looks based on the 'Empire' prop, but lacks many of the originals details and is definitely misporportioned.
