The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the PGM Exclusive Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder Pilot) Deluxe Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.
PROS: I really enjoy the Deluxe Mini Busts for their versatility in display options so this PGM variant gets high praise due to its extra lightsaber wielding arm. The inclusion of the separate lightsaber hilt is a nice touch as well as it can be worn on the belt or held in one of the interchangeable arms. The paint deco is quite good with few blemishes or sloppy applications. The texture of the coat looks fantastic and almost appears to have a wet, snow soaked look. The helmet treatment is also very good as the deco is very crisp (although maybe a bit too clean) and the visor completes the look.
CONS: Being strictly a PGM exclusive may have ruffled a few feathers when it was announced, especially after the General Veers Deluxe Mini Bust kerfufel last year. I couldn’t help but think that this deluxe version could have also benefitted from the inclusion of the grenade used to take out the AT-AT. It would have been a great accessory to pair with the exclusive Lightsaber arm.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this bust is worth adding to your collection.
