    Comments: The Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho) action figure poisoned our minds into believing the young Jedi didnít wear his full Jedi wardrobe underneath his battle poncho. Fact of the matter is, he not only wore the tunic he was seen in before that point, he also sported a belt over the tunic -completing his Jedi transformation- on which he kept his trusty Lightsaber. To date, neither kenner or Hasbro has made a rendition of Luke wearing the complete Jedi outfit including the belt.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho) action figure has no known major variations.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
