Medicom/Enterbay - 12" Luke Skywalker

The latest in Star Wars collectibles from MEDICOM TOY and ENTERBAY, the Ultimate Unison 12-inch figure series! The 'UU' series combines the very best from Medicom's highly regarded RAH figure body with Enterbay's incredibly detailed sculpture quality. Outfitted with a detailed, working light saber accessory (battery operated-included*)and designed after Luke's appearance in Star Wars: Episode IV, the Luke Skywalker 'UU' 12-inch Figure is highly authentic and film accurate, ready to take life on your shelf in any dynamic pose that you desire.

My opinion: Although the figure shows exceptional detail and craftsmanship, Im overly not impressed. Medicom figures are notorious for not being anywhere near 1/6th scale. They always appear stumpy and very unappealing next to a figure that is true to 1/6th scale. Another thing that bothers me is that the face scult, although showing much detail, looks nothing like Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker in 1977's "Star Wars". The face of the headsculpt almost looks too womanly. And with a US$300 pricetag, I have to say in my opinion this figure is not worth it.
